I going to make my first bacon so here is my question.

Should I leave the bacon in a brim in a pot for 10-14 days


should I do a dry rub and vacuum seal it for 3-5 day

Tell me if you have tried both of them and what was your result.

I have done both a brine and dry cure.

I like the texture of the dry cure better.

My dry cure was longer than 3-5 days thou.
