Im good at 38.5
Its just my way at times.What is the benefit of the 2 stage cure/spice mix? My second question is, if you are adding cure in 2 stages, is your initial batch of cure/spice mix weighed to have your cure reach the final ppm of nitrate/nitrite, because if so, it would seem that for the first 5 days you are at a lower ppm than you would be shooting for, and then adding the rest after 5 days to reach the desired ppm. I would assume with your amount of knowledge that this wouldn't be a problem, but I'm just curious as to whether one should/could add full strength of cure in the initial spice mix rub and then just add spice rub to the second addition. I'm not questioning your wisdom, because the product looks excellent. I am just wondering about the process and why you chose to do it that way.
I'm cool with that. You can't trade experience for anything else! I wasn't questioning your knowledge, just trying to dig a little deeper. As a newbie, I will stick to recipes but keep watching and learning from the MaestersIts just my way at times.
I do my mix all at 1 time, split that up, apply the 1st then 7 days later apply the rest of the dry. so in other words no its not getting over or under cured. I dont go by PPM like others do, just not my thing as i know from years of experience that my products are safe.
No worries its all good, we all learn still, heck even an old phart like me...lolI'm cool with that. You can't trade experience for anything else!
