Where to buy Cure in Canada (list)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all, as I see a lot of people asking where to buy Prague powder #1 or other curing agents. I am starting with canada, because there are less major cities, but I am going to try to list here places to buy your curing products. Please make sure you verify what you are buying, and the % of Nitrite/Nitrate in the product. Prague powder is 6.25% nitrite. Other products sold may vary in % changing how much you need to use.

I think they just ship/sell to canada, I don't think they have an actual store. I am more looking to list places where you can walk in to buy it. It is easy to find online (amazon, anywhere listed above, ebay, sausagemaker.com etc. etc)

Great initiative. Thank you.

One thing though: Canada Compound sells (and makes) Readycure not Prague#1. Readycure has a concentration of 1% sodium nitrite vs 6.25% in Prague#1 - perfectly usable for the same purpose but dosage needs to be adjusted.

Readycure is also sold in Highland Farms supermarkets.

Yes, also some Sell FS cure, which is 5% instead of 6.25%. If it doesn't say prague powder #1 make sure to look at the % and calculate your measurements accordingly.

They're more like Canada Compund and sell commercially, though you can walk in and buy from them. They have equipment as well but some of it is on the largish size.

The Grocery People Warehouse Market in Edmonton sells Morton TenderQuick. I will keep my eyes peeled for cure #1 and #2 the next time I'm there.
