well it takes 2 weeks to cure, and with some tender loving apple wood smoke applied.......I was informed that we will NEVER buy bacon again.....I'm supposed to make this on a constant basis....

yea, this was not a purchased premix cure either.....

2 lbs pork shoulder (I actually used blade shoulder and cut the blade out)
1/3 cup unsulfured molasses
1/4 cup kosher salt
3/4 cup brown sugar packed
2 Tbs liquid smoke
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
1 tsp prague #2


trim butt, put in zip lock baggie with molasses and liquid smoke, coat the meat, add all of the remaining ingredients to the bag. Let cure 2 weeks turning every few days. After 2 weeks, rinse with cold water, then allow to sit in cold water 2 hours, drain and pat dry. Let come to room temp ~1 hour or so, smoke at 200 F until internal reaches 140. I choose to smoke with applewood....... yum yum.....

yes in fridge, turn every couple of days.

prague #2 is prague curing salt number 2, it's usually used for dry curing sausages (prague #1 is used in smoked sausage much like tenderquick)
