Instacure #1 for a Fattie

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have read on other sites that people are using a cure when they smoke thier fatties. Is this needed? I would think cooking at a temp of 275 it would not be a concern.

cure is not just for food safety, it is for texture, taste, and finished color.  I put cure in when I want that texture and sometimes I use it to get that dramatic red color in the product.

It is not needed when hot smoking unless you want to use it for those things Bbally suggested

I was making snack sticks one day and had a bit left over and made a burger, it was pretty darn good. Not that I would make them like that all the time. Give it a shot.
