    Just rechecked the numbers at it says 5.4 days.
    I must have used a 1 inch radius instead of 2 in diameter.

    5.4 days seems more like it.

    Problem seems to be between the chair and the keyboard

    I just put your numbers in the calculator. The Prague powder is about right, but your time is way off. It says 5.4 days for a 2” thick piece of meat.

    Recalculate and double check. It gives pretty much the absolute minimum time required.

    Corned beef / pastrami question

    This is my first attempt at curing anything.
    Ordered some Prague Powder from Amazon.

    Ive got a 2.5 lb section of brisket flat, just under 2 inches thick, in 2 quarts of water.
    The curing calculator said I should use 1.3 teaspoons of cure and it should take 1.4 days.

    That doesn't seem very long. Should I be going longer?
