Morton's tenderquick help please?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Merry xmas!  I'm pretty good with the search feature, but got even more confused.  I'm interested in making some summer sausage using ground venison and some pork...probably 2-5 lb batch.  There are plenty of recipes out there, but concensus on tenderquick is all over the map.  Is it 1.5 tsp or 1 TBS per lb of meat?  The bag says 1 TBS per lb, but plenty of folks say 1.5 tsp per lb.  Morton's has a recipe for beef salami on their website calling for 1.5 tsp per lb, yet the bag says 1 TBS?  Thanks for the help...not trying to overthink, I just don't want to ruin my good ground venison.

From the Morton's web site:


I should add that the amounts are different for ground meat and intact muscle meat.  This is likely the source of confusion.


Good luck and good smoking.

Perfect...thanks guys.  Sounds like 1.5 tsp for 1 lb ground and 1 TBS for 1 lb roasts or solid cuts...Will let you know how the summer sausage turns out.  Merry xmas.
