RJ Adventures I would think that the cures are going to be too salty base on what they are designed to do. The Bacon Taste Boooster would help impact some flavor. There was discussions about the booster maybe Jonathon someone else here can help with that. If I was going to use a bacon cure for sausage/sticks I would like at the ones that are use to make a pickle. Anyone else out the to keep me honest?
Ok my wife wasn’t paying attention I asked her to add 1 oz of sure cure she added the bag 4 oz , is the summer sausage ok to eat with that much ?
outlaw179 That’s a tough question, the official recommendation would be to toss it out. However, the only proven instance in which Nitrites become carcenogens is when you char that meat, this is why bacon has tightly regulated ingoing parts per million (ppm) of nitrites, because many people char it when cooking.
Now, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any other possible ill effects of too much nitrite but the main concern isn’t an issue it summer sausage as long as you dont pan fry it for some reason.
