I have tried to search all my questions so I wouldnt have to ask this but I am still unsure. I started some BBB last night at my parents w/o my foodsaver so I put it in some gallon freezer bags. There is alot of juice run off and I have read about draining it, but do you risk loosing your cure through the juice making the curing dangerous? The other question i have is I covered one of my slabs in garlic to see what would happen. When applying the garlic some of it would fall off with the cure blend I made. When I wrapped it up to start I made sure that the pork was covered by the garlic mix. Is this safe? I think next time if I try covering it in garlic for some time is to stick the minced garlic in the oven a bit to dry it out.
