Gravydave So I assume you will be doing an imitation bacon process where you grind and form it into a loaf? If so the answer is yes, we recently did this with pork and the blue ribbon maple bacon cure plus bacon taste booster and were happy with the results. Just don’t forget to mix in some pork fat or it wont have much taste. Probably use sure gel as well for a binder. The booster isn’t essential but it does help kick up the flavor a little bit.
mfrievalt I don’t know if the others I mentioned are any more sensitive or not, probably not. I do know that you can adjust the sensitivity on mine & it is pretty sensitive, but I have never thought of using it for this sort of thing as I am still doing it the old fashioned way. On the other hand, my only worry is that it will only tell you that steel pellets are there, but not exactly where they are, so you still need to use the old fashioned method to find them.
