    locally in the Greensboro, NC area? I tried Morton's website, but they didn't list any stores in 50 miles, so I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone knew where it could be had. I have looked online, and may still order it, but shipping seems really high to me for the cost of the product. I'm only going to buy 1 bag, as I have never tried making my own bacon, and I don't want to drop a bunch of money on something that I think I'll like, but don't really know.

    Thanks for your help.

    Did you check your grocery stores. We have a Kennies, and a food lion, and they both carry tenderquick. Do you have any butcher shops in your area? They also sell it.

    Last time I checked local grocery had it. Honestly, I have stopped using it and use cure#1 (depends on what you are doing) and salt.

    If you can't find it PM me and I will check and see If I can get some for you.

    I checked the local Harris Teeter and Lowe's, but hadn't checked Food Lion. Thanks for the suggestion. Werd - I will do that.

    I have heard rumors of Gander Mountain having it but have never looked for it at the Greensboro store. Might have to take a trip south to Concord and check out Bass Pro Shop.

    I got screwed by Morton with freight charges. I have 2 extra bags. You want to trade?

    For what it is worth, I make my own for bacon.

    2 oz prague/instacure/etc #1
    8 oz extra fine granulated sugar
    16 oz kosher salt

    And then add garlic powder, onion powder and maple sugar for flavor.

    I was given a bag along time ago. But I hear you can get your tenderquick and the shipping won't kill you from Butcher-Packer for your spices and kits for bacon, sausage and jerky too.
