I tsp of cure #1 will cure 5# of meat.

You must use all the rub for the piece of meat you are curing.

For your 2 lb. piece you would use just a little less than 1/2 tsp.

If there is any leftover it must go in the bag with the meat to properly cure it.

This is the calculator we all use.

Just plug in the numbers & you will know exactly how much of each ingredient you need.

Let's figure out a rub....

For 1# of meat....454 grams... 

2% salt = 9 grams

1% sugar= 5 grams

CBP,,  weigh out some

GP..  weigh out some.. 

Cure #1= 1.1 grams

Multiply those numbers X 100 and you have enough for 100 #'s of meat....   THEN...  weigh it all and divide by 100 and you know how much to add to 1# of meat....

9 + 5 + 1 + ? + ? = 15 or 17 grams per pound...   Mix THOROUGHLY before each use.....

I do that for fish... I have a bag of fish cure in my curing stuff..

Kosher salt seems to be what most use...  No anti caking ingredients etc...    FWIW, different salts weigh differently per equal volume....   Soooo it's best to always weigh stuff.....
