Is it a huge mistake to use Cure 1 instead of Cure 2

Post by bolepa » Mon Aug 27, 2018 17:09

I remember this was covered in similar topic some time ago but I was not able to find it, so decided to ask this question again: Is it a huge mistake to use Cure 1 instead of Cure 2 curing the whole muscle? I was curing two pork loins (both 1550 g) with Cure 2 a month ago. They lost 30% of their weight within 5 weeks and came out great. Yesterday I started with 6 pieces of loin with weight range from 850 to 1200 g. each but I goofed and used Cure 1 instead of Cure 2. I think that in this case drying time should be less then 5 weeks based on loins weight so they should loose 30% within 4 weeks and I should not worry too much about this. On the picture you can see my "previous" two loins along with a few SL ribs getting ready for hot smoking.

No problem whatsoever! Chris sums it up nicely here: http://wedlinydomowe.pl/en/viewtopic.php?t=8556

BobK, Thank you very much for you input and the link. I appreciated that. Just red Chris's comment and confirmed for myself that I should not start panicking. :-)
By the way, I just cannot figure out how to link (attach) pictures. Went through Q&A several times, then tried to link pictures but.... no success.

The easiest I have found to use for photos is IMGUR. Just copy the BB code (link to forums) and paste it in your post

You can see it but...
Next to your photo on Imgur just click the blue copy box that says BB code and copy into your post the Image will show in the post, not the link

"just click the blue copy box that says BB code"
BobK, I can see only gray copy box which does not say BB code - just COPY button. When I click on it, it blinks once (copying the link). After I tried to paste it in my post it show up as a link only - not the image.

OK. If you join Imgur (it's free), download and save your picture, you will then see the Blue boxes with varios links.

I got it! I had to click on the uploaded image and then I can see all those blue buttons.
Thank you, Bob K!
