Got the shoulder rubbed in the cure and in the fridge last night. I am using the Buck Board bacon cure from High Mountain. Any tips or things I should know?

I only did about 6 pounds for a first run to see what it is like. In 10 days I'll smoke it, slice it and fry and see how it is.
Hi-Mountain's directions are excellent Hanifen, just follow them and that should take care of it. Be sure and let us know how it goes. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
