I would just make sure that your ratio of salt and cure is correct, all other ingredients should be modified to fit your own tastes IMO.

Got it. I didnt change the salt and Cure #1 amounts.

So while i have your attention Harry. I am looking at the recipe for CB in the book and he says to use 1.5 oz of Cure #1 in a brine, then says to use a 4lb loin. That seems excessive to me, but is higher then normal due to the fact that its a brine rather than a dry cure?

I think that's why. When you put the dry cure on, the only solution the salt can go into is what gets pulled out of the meat. So it's pretty concentrated with even a little salt.

Incidentally, I've made a lot of stuff from that book, and the bacon in particular calls for too much pink salt I think. I use about 3/4 what he mentions for the dry cures. The wet cures I follow as directed.

BTW, Ruhlman has a pretty good web site: http://ruhlman.com If you email him with questions, he'll actually write you back, too.[/url]
