That's a good question Fuzz- I just got myself one of those. Ten to fifteen days is a loooong wait.

Swadly,

Sorry it took so long, the board is crapping out and it's a bit hard to keep up.

I know that doesn't sound like much BUT it is, <font color="red"><b><u>this ain't butt rub here</u></b></font id="red">-it's curing agent/salt.  That amount is fine.  Take your time and rub it in well and coat the outside of the meat.  In a few days you will see a slight tinged brown fluid in the bottom of your container, you know it's working-don't drain this off.

Keep us informed, it you want to email me direct-thats fine.

White,

I don't have my list of temps here at the office, I'l bring them next time.  All I do is duplicate BBB for what ever bacon I make, it seems to work well, doesn't dry out-good smoke flovor.  The only thing I'm am modifing is the finish temp, I am starting to be at about 155, so I am sure I can eat it any time after smoking..

Have a good weekend.  Whats the weather?  94 and about the same humidity.

Is "BuckBoard Bacon" the same as Maple Cure? Are the directions for using maple cure that is sold by Butcher-Packer your baseline for "Buckboard Bacon[?]

<br />Swadly,

I use the BuckBoard Bacon directions for my baseline.  However when you put on your cure-use only the amount the directions say to use.  More is not better in this case.  Typically you will have to way out the amount of cure to the weight of the meat.  About the time, BBB says to cure it for 14 days and turn the meat half way through, I think that should be you minimum.  I usually go for about 28 days, a little more intence flavor especially with the maple cure, it's flavoring is not as strong as the BBB.  HTH let us know if we can help with anything else.

When you buy your cure from Butcher-Packer, the directions on weight is on the web site from the page you ordered it from.

Curt,

When I am refering to the BBB directions, I am refering to the way they go about smoking (times & temps) the meat after curing.  When you use the curing agent/salt mixture, I use the amounts the makers of that particular mix tells me to.  The amount is different between BBB and Butcher-Packer.  As far as the length of time for curing, I beleive what is mention in the BBB method, is 14 days, tjis would be my minimum.  I ussually go 21-28 days.  HTH

What is BuckBoard Bacon[?]  Is it cured in a brine or is a dry rub used[?]  Where would I find directions for using BuckBoard Bacon[?]   I bought a ten pound whole boneless pork loin today and I to figure out what process I should use to get some real good canacian bacon that is not too salty.  Thanks.

If you go up to the top of the page and hit "search" and put "Buckboard Bacon" in, it will bring up alot of threads about the subject.  It is a very interesting read, as is all past topics.  You may want to just sit down sometime and read the past threads.  I know I've learned <u>ALOT!!</u>

As "The Duck Annihilater" stated about not pouring off the liquid that formed, I had an idea.
I wanted to do some pork loins for Canadian Bacon so I thought about rubbing them down with the cure and putting them in a vacuum seal bag... [:0]
<font color="red">Here's my idea</font id="red">, I have one the sealers that you can seal at any point without pulling a vacuum on it. This would let you turn and "Massage" it any time along the way during the cure time.
<font color="red">Also</font id="red">, it would be a lot easier to find a place in the fridge for it. You could move it from one shelf to another without having to avoid spilling anything OR make room for it to fit... What do you think Duck Man??[?]
