Anyone know where to buy Tender Quick

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
locally in the Greensboro, NC area? I tried Morton's website, but they didn't list any stores in 50 miles, so I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone knew where it could be had. I have looked online, and may still order it, but shipping seems really high to me for the cost of the product. I'm only going to buy 1 bag, as I have never tried making my own bacon, and I don't want to drop a bunch of money on something that I think I'll like, but don't really know.

Thanks for your help.

Did you check your grocery stores. We have a Kennies, and a food lion, and they both carry tenderquick. Do you have any butcher shops in your area? They also sell it.

Last time I checked local grocery had it. Honestly, I have stopped using it and use cure#1 (depends on what you are doing) and salt.

If you can't find it PM me and I will check and see If I can get some for you.

I checked the local Harris Teeter and Lowe's, but hadn't checked Food Lion. Thanks for the suggestion. Werd - I will do that.

I have heard rumors of Gander Mountain having it but have never looked for it at the Greensboro store. Might have to take a trip south to Concord and check out Bass Pro Shop.

Bass Pro is a great idea...my mother in law is in town starting tomorrow, and we were going to go to Charlotte for something Monday anyways...

Want to trade?

I got screwed by Morton with freight charges. I have 2 extra bags. You want to trade?

For what it is worth, I make my own for bacon.

2 oz prague/instacure/etc #1
8 oz extra fine granulated sugar
16 oz kosher salt

And then add garlic powder, onion powder and maple sugar for flavor.

I was given a bag along time ago. But I hear you can get your tenderquick and the shipping won't kill you from Butcher-Packer for your spices and kits for bacon, sausage and jerky too.

all the bigger groc stores up here have it in stock, in the spice section close to the salts. generally on the bottom shelf...
