Looking to make a batch of Landjaeger (not traditional dry age cure which is my absolute favorite) and have a question or two.
First, in watching @jonathon Landjaeger video, you state that you may not use ECA on the next batch, but perhaps Sodium Eythorbate as a cure excelerator…I’m curious if anyone here has made their own batch of Landjaeger using Excalibur’s seasoning mix, and how “close” it tastes to the traditional stuff.
Second, is there an additive that one can add to the meat at the end of the process where it doesn’t need to go directly to the smoker? I love the tang that ECA delivers, but I want to really press these things flat before putting them in the smoker.
Thanks in advance; love the info gained on this board.
