  2. I followed the original recipe because I like the saltiness. Threw in a few cloves of crushed garlic and some peppercorns. I can barely pick up on the garlic but it's there... Not too powerful. I might try some juniper berries next time and a few bay leaves but I'm very satisfied with the first attempt

    Great looking CB. How long was it in the brine?

    Keep up the good smokin.
  6. Twoalpha, the 2 loin roasts were in the brine for 10 days. I didn't inject them either and the cure had completely penetrated them in that time. I bought a white 5 gallon bucket and a lid at Walmart and it fits perfectly in my beer refrigerator downstairs. I can see me constantly having something curing in Pops brine. You can't go wrong with it. I've done a whole turkey and a venison blackstrap with it in the past and everyone raved about them.
