    I just got done curing for the past 14 days in pops brine and was just wondering when to put seasonings on.  I put CBP Garlic powder, and onion powder on now, then put it in the fridge to for the pellicle.  Did i do that right?  Should you season after the pellicle is formed?

    Also, I kind of screwed up my timing.  I would like to be in the fridge uncovered for about 3 days.  that puts me to Friday.  I am heading out of town friday night and wont be back til sunday morning.  Will it be ok in the fridge uncovered til Sunday?  Thanks for the help.

    It will be OK in the fridge now that it is cured. I add the garlic and onion powder to the brine when I first start for Canadian Bacon with a loin. If you are just adding it as a rub you put it on while it is still wet so it sticks.
