    I am 4 days into curing some BBB with Hi Mountain. When I turned the butt pieces today, I noticed thet one of the zip lock bags had come open (maybe since I started - don't know) and some of the brine, like 1 Tbs, had leaked into the foil pan holding the bags.

    I marked the leaking/open bag, sealed it up, and put everything back into the fridge.

    Is this something to be concerned about? I can't imaging I lost enough cure to worry about, but what if the bag was opened for a few days. Any concerns?

    I'm no expert...but I wouldn't worry about it myself.
  3. I don't even use bags for my belly bacon. I just rub them down and stack them up in a tub. Don't worry about it a bit. That one is still curing.
