    @daveomak I think your response cut off at the end? Were you saying that you use Maple Bacon Cure to make Summer Sausage?

    @jbird I need to have a discussion with our application specialist before I can answer you the correct amount. I know his first response is going to be something along the lines of “why would you want to do that?” or “tell them we don’t recommend it” and then once we get past that hopefully I can get you a portion per lb that will work for you!
