Welcome to the site. Let me start you out with some for your first post...I know that can be a big hurdle to get over.

I have used vac bags when curing, but not in the way you think. I didn't pull a full vacuum on it, In fact I left a bit of air in it so I could seal it up and have room to massage the cure / sugar and subsequent liquid around. Effectively I just used it to seal so that I didn't have a leak in the fridge.

Anymore, I save the vacuum bag and use a large (2 or 2.5 gallon) zipper plastic bag and put that in a roasting pan in case it were to leak...just burp most of the air out of it and it will mimic the use of a vac bag.

I find it best to have a bit of air in so you can move the cure / sugar around especially after the meat under cure purges some liquid.

Whatever way you decide to go, take some pics and let us see the results and process.

Like Dana, I like to use Zip-Locks.
In fact we have a system here---Mrs Bear folds the tops over like a Pants Cuff, I put the TQ and Brown Sugar on & slide them in while she holds the bags open.
Then I wash my hands & fold the tops back, squeeze most of the air out & Zip them up.

Then everything left is for me to do until it's ready to eat.

And Welcome Sockeye!!

Great advise given. Yes you can, yes I have. Does it speed up the cure time...in theory yes but in reality minimal.

The only time I vacuum now is for a quick marinade not for curing. Ziplocks are cheaper.

i use vac bags but like Dana said i don't suck out all the air......i make 4-6 at a time so it makes it easy to stack them an not worry about leaks.
