    My 1st time using a wet brine for bacon.



    Weighed the hunks down. Now I just need to wait!

    Thats a nice belly.

    You use the regular brine or the lo salt brine?

    I like the lo salt one.

    I used a heavy cup in a 2 gallon batch farmer.

    My first go, I have only done the dry cure previously. Would that be considered lo salt? Or is there another recipe I missed? Thanks.

    Yup, thats what I thought too. Lol.

    As long say you dont change the cure amount, your good.

    All good on the cure. I will try the lo salt one with the belly I have in the freezer! About the same salt, but a lot less sugar. Thanks for the info!

    Bacon turned out great. Not too salty at all.
