Bacon Taste Booster is something that is made to help fight off rancidity in the cooler and to help impart the old world taste with modern methods, like injecting. Now, it is most effective when you are tumbling as generally after tumbling you go right to the smoker instead of holding overnight but it can be used when injecting and holding overnight. So you might want to consider adding some if you inject, I add it when I inject and I do think that it adds something nice to the bacon!
Curing bacon, wet cure
Got 50 lbs bacon, going to use Blue ribbon maple bacon wet cure. Recipe says 2# of cure per 100# bellies, but only 1 gal water, not enough water to cover bacon. Not sure how to adjust . Any suggestions. Curing bacon in sealable 5 gal buckets.
I will go through and update our cure recipes with some more information to help make this a little more clear.
That instruction is really better suited for injecting bacon.
If you want to submerge, soak, and brine the bacon with a cover brine, we recommend using 1 lb of cure per 1 gallon of water for that cover solution.
Let me know if I can help out any more!
