I've been smoking for a couple years now but I've never cured anything. I went down to a sasauge shop and got the cures for bacon and pastrami. I mixed them all together and dumped the solution in a zip lock bag with the meats. But there was a lot of the cure in the bottom of the bowl. I'm just curious if this is alright or do I need to do it again and mix it better? I'm worried it won't cure properly. I have 5lbs of side bacon and 5 lbs of brisket. Curing really don't wanna wreck it haha.
