Hey guys, I've been posting on the board for awhile now and have always enjoyed the info I received on here. So I decided to try to make some bacon. I went to the local butcher here in Lakeland FL. and purchased 10 pounds of pork belly @ $2.99 a pound, good deal I think. Anyway, I've decided to use Pop's brine since everyone says its good. I did one cup of sea salt, cup of sugar, cup of brown sugar, just over a tbs of cure, a little pepper, little garlic powder and onion powder. Put it in the fridge and hopefully it all turns out well. Any input would be appreciated.
