    here is some that i just did....

    my standard formula is:

    per 1 # of meat -

    1 gm of cure # 1

    5 gm of sugar....i use raw or turbinado

    7 gm of salt...i use kosher

    1 tbsp granulated onion

    1 tbsp granulated garlic

    1 tbsp black pepper

    i use a vac seal but i don't take all the air out but a zip lock works fine. the one thing i like about my formula is i never have to fry test or soak to get rid of too much salt.

    i can't stress how easy a digital scale that registers in grams makes it easy....oxo makes a good one for $30.

    another tool that is a must is an AMNPS  for cold smoking since i treat my BBB as belly and i fry it like regular bacon in a little olive oil. with the AMNPS you don't even need a smoker....a large cardboard box and a rack will get the job done. i hope this helps you some.......
