Slow roasting pork belly tonight. Only time to "cure" (salt+sugar) for 4 or 5 hrs. Rinse it off before cooking as one would with fully cured meat, or not?

Why are you seasoning pork? Big no no, with porkchops maybe a light seasoning but any other pig should be sugar and sweet spice (clover, allspice, etc)
