Even if it doesn't, just lie and tell us how great it was. At this point we couldn't handle the disappointment. The whole forum would implode, creating a big black hole in the internet!!!
More like waiting for the wife to give birth..... Hey Al, can't we just induce labor?
Yes I soaked it for a couple of hours. When I fry tested it it turned pink. I wasn't going to eat any but had to see how it tasted & it tasted good.Have you soaked in fresh water yet?
I usually have a dark ring like this on some cured items, not usually that thick. if you followed the cure instructions / pound of meat and it was sub 40F you should be ok.
I'd do a fry test or soak / fry until the right taste.
