** head meat, tongues and heart develop a nice red color when cured with sodium nitrite. Even blood maintains nicer color when treated with sodium nitrite. It will be is impractical to use dry cure for split heads and that is why they are cured with wet solution which can penetrate each crevice of the skull. Tongues and heart are also cured with wet solution.

1 gal water, 333 g (0.73 lb) salt, Cure #1, 120 g (4.2 oz)
