Streaky bacon with Calc

Can I use Wheels dry cure calc to make streaky bacon?
Do I just use the skin on option?

You can leave rind/skin on if you like or you can take off -- the choice is yours :) :)

The dry cure mix needs to be applied to the meat side (80% - 90%) -- I tend to do 80%

and the remaining cure 10% - 20% (in my case 20%) is applied the the rind/skin side (or if you have removed the rind/skin to the fat side)
