If he has made bacon before he is familiar with understanding the process.

I think the confusion comes from the terminology used in the post. While making bacon some people call it a cure while others call it a brine because it is a solution of water, salt, and sugar. If it has a curing agent (pink salt) it is a cure, if you make bacon without a curing agent it is merely a brine. many stores sell uncured bacon here in the US including Trader Joes....

I guess it would be helpful if "GermanyCharcuterie" would explain what he is trying to make with the apple brine and apple wood smoking process....
