Sorry about the repost (I couldn't figure out how to delete a thread) but this forum fits my inquiry better I put my buckboard bacon in the cure last saturday morning (10 o'clock EST about) so today I flipped em over. I'm wondering if either A. My containers were too small or B. I put the wrong amount of cure or didn't coat the bacon enough with the cure. I'm wondering this because when they got flipped the bottoms were nice'n pink in some areas and in others they were the standard purpley gray sort of refrigerated meat color. I don't have pics but my description should suffice I think. Let me know if I did something wrong or am being paranoid. This is my first bacon/cure attempt Thanks for your help!
