Buying bacon cure?

Are you looking to begin your bacon making or have you been doing it for a while?

I am not a great fan of Supracure as it contains both Nitrate as well as Nitrite. At least they are now recommending that it only be used at a rate of 3% - their original rate produced bacon that was way too salty and delivered twice the commercially permitted maximum of Nitrite.

I suggest that you use their Cure #1 and use it to mix your own cure

With your help Wade this is how I started off, I find it so easy using a cure calculator and mixing my own. It's great adding the herbs & spices that suit your own taste buds.

Thank you for your responses guys.

It will be our first time curing bacon.

We thought a ready mixed bacon cure would be easiest but not opposed to making our own, especially in light of the nitrate issue.

Any chance someone can direct me to a reliable source of cure recipes please.

Cheers.

Hi Bandit. As you are just starting up please send me a private message with your name and address and I will send you a bacon making kit and a pack of Cure#1. I am trying to encourage people who are new to curing and so there will be no charge. The bacon making kit has a ready mixed cure that you use directly on the pork (full instructions included) and the cure#1 will be ready for when you take the next steps.

Cheers

Wade
