Sugar cure for Bacon

  • Morton salt company no longer makes mortons sugar cure
    It was sold in 7 1/2 lb bags to cure 100 lbs of meat
    I would like to find out how much sugar,salt,pink salt
    Was used per lb of cure.
    Also is sea salt a substitute for kosher salt
    Please note Mortons does not recommend Tender Quick
    For large cuts of meat like hams or bacon.
    Can any one help.

    The Morton’s stuff has more cure than just “pink salt”. It has nitrates in it too. The easiest way to replicate it is to use the version from Excalibur. They have custom matches for both the regular and smoke flavored version.

    Look on the cure page here for the “MRT” cures:

    It is good.
    We like to serve a chub on a small bed of rice next to 4-5 bang bang shrimp.

    Everyone loves it.

    thanks for the info, I had not heard of this until 3 years ago and I think the reason it was brined was to cure or preserve it while
    frozen. A friend of a friend makes these after hunting season so they can be taken out of the freezer and sliced up for snacks and they are fantastic but he wont share the recipe. When they are unthawed even after many months they are still perfect.
    Have you tried freezing any portion and is it still as good when first made?
