Nope! TQ was the first cure I was introduced to by my Army friend from North Dakota.

I use TQ, #1 and #2. Even have a couple of pounds of Salt Petre. Haven't tried that though.

TQ is versatile but often seen as being not a real cure.

I use TQ mostly in dry rubs for Bacon, Canadian Bacon, pork chops and one of my favorite summer sausage recipes. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
