Question on Curing

Discussion in 'Bacon' started by padronman, Jul 6, 2015.

  1. Have a 6lb belly and plan on using Pop's Brine.  Question is does it have to be done in a bucket or will LARGE ziplocks give enough emersion?   I don't want to take up too much room in the ol beer fridge :eek:)

    thanks in advance for any help.

    PM, beer fridges are for beer ! [​IMG]
     
  4. Speaking from one bad experience, always put the bag in some kind of container. I use a big rectangular Tupperware container that fits perfectly front to back in my beer fridge. The one time I didn't use it the bag developed a leak and made a mess.

    Lesson learned....

    Yep that! Even when I marinate something in a one gallon bag I do that.
