Just got back from my chinese pork butcher with 2kg of belly & a 4kg bit of loin with belly on it. Going to change cure do a beer influenced version. Real question is how long on the soak? Last batch was 7 days turned out great but I dont have 7 days left.I can inject it,I have the needle I saw Arblancher post that nitrites have done their work in 3 days.So can brine it for 5 days & get it done ? I want to take it down to our house on the South Coast as a thankyou to the the 2 big 30 year olds that help me with the heavy lifting,furniture moving etc. But I want out of this big dirty ,crazy city soon !! If any of the experts can help that would be great.
