post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

ok A question do you have to have nitrate in stuff?

* If I hot-smoke it?

* and in sausage?

* in bacon.

I really don't like the taste of it and it burns my thong. That is why I starting to make my own bacon with out nitrate and hope that it will come out great

Hot smoking, no.

Sausage, not necessarily, but just remember fresh (uncured) sausage won't keep any longer than fresh meat.

Bacon, I really don't know. I think you can salt or sugar cure bacon, but I'll leave that to the experts to advise you.

As for the burning thong, I think you may wanna cut back on the cayenne pepper. And maybe try boxers. :)
