Hi Mountain SS Cure

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by fished, Jan 24, 2015.

  1. I've used the search bar and couldn't find the answer.  Hi Mountain's cure is yellow.  It seems like I read before on here that it's the same as the Cure #1, which is pink.  Is that correct?

    Thanks

  2. I have no clue. I would guess yes. However never use a cure for another cure without knowing. You should be able to compare the labels.

    Happy smoken.

    What else does it say on the description....   They don't list "Hi mountain Cure" as something they sell....

    Hi mountain cure is listed as sugar, salt and sodium nitrite (.85%).
     
  5. The kit or cure package doesn't say what the percentage is, only that it is sodium nitrite.  I guess I'll just use the rest of the kit, following their directions.  Going to mix up some summer sausage tonight to smoke tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Ed, when using pre packaged stuff.....    ALWAYS follow manufacturers directions.....        Dave
     
  8. Thanks Dave, your input is always welcome with me.  The reason I was asking is that we have already made some SS using the kit.  It was ok.  We preffered the taste of the LEM kit we used before better.  I was thinking about getting rid of their seasoning packages (just keeping the cure, if it's the same as cure 1) and following a recipe on here.  Without knowing that I guess I will just use the kit as it is intended.

    Thanks

    If you use "Hi Mt Cure & Seasoning" to cure any kind of Bacon, just make sure you do a Salt-fry Test after curing.

    I do a Salt-fry test on every cure I do, just in case, and the only time I ever had to soak anything I cured for "hours" was when I used Hi Mt Cure & Seasoning on a batch of BBB.

  10. Thanks for the advice Bear.  Both times I have made bacon was following Bear's method.  I has always came out good.  I wouldn't change that process.
