    How do I figure the cure amount in sausage if using some already cured bacon?

    Just weigh what's not cured? Does it matter?

    Yep. Weigh just the uncured Pork and add accordingly. Even adding for the whole amount of meat, there would just be less than 1/3 more and not even remotely close to toxic levels...JJ
