That's what I was thinking, I could filter thru cheesecloth or something, but what is the view with regard to the spice flavour do you think it might overwhelm the meat? Might have to try a light spicing to see how it goes

The spices are added to the injected brine part. There is no other brine for them to go in to as this isn't put into the remaining brine - following injection it's dry cured.

On another thread Oddley says:

Which appears to confirm this
