I picked up a 11 lb belly yesterday at RD for 2.19 a lb. Made up the basic cure from Ruhluman's Charcuterie. I cut the belly in half and put in just the cure on half and added pure maple syurp in the other. Hope it comes out fine.I'll take picters and keep you posted. It sure doesn't take much pink salt does it? Barely turned the salt/sugar mixture pink.
