Which Morton's "Curing" product for BBB and/or Pork belly Bacon

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I think I posted this question in the wrong place (Jerky) earlier.  Sorry!

 

Getting ready to cure &smoke my first BBB and Pork Belly Bacon.

 

Looks like I will have to purchase one of the Morton's curing products on-line,as I can't seem to find any in the local stores.

 

My question is: Which Morton's product should I buy?

 

1. Morton's Tender Quick Mix

2. Morton's Sugar Cure

3. Morton's Sugar Cure Smoke Flavored

I gave you my opinion at the other place, but here it is again:

 

All I ever use is #1---- "MTQ"

A few guys have been using #2 ----Morton's Sugar Cure, as it is interchangeable with MTQ.

Smoke flavored----#3---- is not interchangeable with TQ, and personally I would not recommend it for that reason.

 

My Opinion,

You may want to use cure #1 instead. 

 

Pop's brine is the easiest way to cure bacon.

 

Here is a link. It will work for BBB & belly bacon.

Thanks All!

That's the input I was looking for

I can't get Morton's Sugar Cure here, so I've only tried TQ.

Now, I use Cure #1 and mix my own
