Cure - tenderizer?

  1. At the local grocery store all they have is McCormick Meat tenderizer. Will that work in place of instacure, prague powder, or morton tender quick?

    Do not be deceived! "Tenderquick" has nothing whatsoever to do with tenderizers. Morton's messed up with that name. TQ is a CURE, not a tenderizer.
  4. Where do most people get their cures? Online? Butchers?

    Better to try a Butcher supply...they usually have all the spices required least in our area.

    I go through allot of tender quick. I just buy from whatever grocery store I'm in at the time of need. Speaking of wich I need to pick some more.
  8. Thanks for the tip on the product locator, but nothing within 50 miles.
  9. Found some tenderquick at a local butcher shop. Now I can make my shoulder bacon. Thanks for the tips.
