Default Buckboard Bacon Cure

Does anyone have a good recipe for Buckboard Bacon Cure? I just went to the Hi Mountain web site and they want like $8.69 for the cure (for 25 lbs of pork butt).. these seems excessive to me.

Weigh the meat then measure out 3% of that weight in salt, 1% in sugar and 0.25% in cure #1. No need to soak after this cure, just give it a quick rinse, pat dry then smoke

The cure kit tells you how to use per pound, you don't have to do 25 pounds at once. (But it is only 3 pork butts anyway)

Here is a recipe I have used for pork butts. http://lpoli.50webs.com/index_files/Bacon-buckboard.pdf Leave out the liquid smoke of course if you are going to smoke it.

This is some buckboard I did a while back with only Morton Tender Quick for 8-10 days, rinsed then cracked black pepper before going in the kettle indirectly to an IT of ~145°.

NitrItes in cure #1 quickly break down into nitric oxide for short term storage (think weeks) and won't be converted into carcinogens

You should also only ever use 2.5g of cure #1 per 1000g of meat. Also the salt content is at 5.2% in that recipe - unless you like your bacon really salty I'd stick with 2.5-3.5%. That way you don't need to soak the meat once the cure's completed

from len poli's recipe site..

http://lpoli.50webs.com/index_files/Bacon-buckboard.pdf

Adjust the recipe to the weight of your meat..
and I added some Ketjap Manis (1/2 to 3/4 cup) - a "Very Sweet" soy sauce into the curing liquid mix...
I did not use liquid smoke but just netted and smoked them...
came out tasting fantastic !!








some cut thin for sandwiches and some cut thick to fry with some eggs or use to make eggs benedict..

Seems simple. Where can I buy cure #1? (Who has the best price on this?)

That should last you for a few years.. You only need 1 tsp per 5 lbs of meat.. The price is good though..

Do you just rub the cure on the pork butt plastic wrap it? Or do you put these cure ingredients in some water in a zip lock?

I assume the shelf life is indefinite?
