    We have 2 pigs at the butchers. I've been looking for a good cure for the bacon and hams. Any suggestions?

    I recently read or heard that it is better health wise to use paprika than black pepper. I am not sure why. I should see if I can find where I saw it.

    Go on line to the Morton Salt company and look for their line of premixed cures, they have a bunch of choices and the instructions come with your purchase.

    I use Pop's brine from the smoking meat forum. It works nicely without being overly salty. I have also used maple syrup in it. Do not use hard water to make the brine.
