    When you dry cure, it helps remove the cure and decreases the saltiness.

    I like a wet cure. I also like to pump spray/inject the brine which includes pure maple syrup. I guess it's just what your raised on and used to.

    Tim - Do you have a Chinese super market near town? That's where I finally found mine.
