Jack,

It's what my wife says when I don't clean up after my self when I use the smoker.  Ah maybe not, great wife here, any women that puts up with 25+ days of duck hunting a year, I better not be complaining....However buying the Bradley, it's one hobby she NEVER complains about.

Mike,
I don't know about the Maple cure. But the Buckboard directions say to use 16 ounces of cure for 25 pounds of meat.Or 1 tablespoon plus 1 and a quarter teaspoon per pound.Hope this gives you some kind of guide line.

I had my BB cure in 5 days,I would call them.

Mike,

I have used the maple cure you are using.  I beleive if you look on there web site from the page you ordered it from it tells you how much to use  one half pound per 25 lbs of meat.  I was surprised to see that it is about half of what BB tells you to use.  I used as directions plus just a bit more and it came out quite desireable.  The meat come out nice and tight and after smoking the color was the nice pink cured apperance.  HTH and keep us informed.

Mike,
I rubbed it real good in every nook and cranny.After removing the bone from the Butts I even rubbed cure in the pocket.Today is 5 days and time to flip them. I will only cure 10 days this time.I want to follow the directions because it's my first time. Next time I will make variations.They will be ready to smoke by the weekend. I'll post the results.

Jack,

Sounds Good.  When you go to rinse it off, clean it "in every nook and cranny" just like you rubbed it in.

Mike,
I wouldn't be concerned about it. Better to much than not enough. I would think if you rinse them real good you will be fine.[:)]
Good Luck!

Well my stuff came in yesterday. I will be doing the BBB as soon as I bone the butt. Only going to do one at this time. Going to cure it at least 20 days. I may just for chits and giggles go 30 days.

Instead of placing it in a bowl I'm going to double zip lock it with two quality freeser bags. I believe this will allow more of the juices to touch the meat as they are formed. From what I have read these juices are most important and need to cover the meat as much as possible.

I will advise as it goes along.
