Mortons Sugar Cure??

  1. Is the sugar cure the same as tenderquick??

    I have used tenderquick and High Mtn several times making BBB and Canadian Bacon. I have a bag of Sugar Cure I would like to use on my next batch of BBB. Any and all advice is appreceated.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    I believe that it is just TQ w/ sugar added . Check the directions and i bet they are the same as TQ
     
  3. eman,

    I think you are correct. I'll go to mortons site and double check. I guess I should have also asked if anyone uses the sugar cure on BBB.

    Thanks for the speedy response.

    Never made bbb so i cant help there but i use tq and add sugar all the time for my canadian bacon so i dont see why not. Just make sure and do a fry test so that you can check the saltiness.

    You are welcome. I am on workmans comp,so I have lots of time to poke around on the net. I study smoking recipes and processes as a hobby.

     I love making sausage and have discovered it takes a lot of reading and time to make. So far so good tho.

    I got my "fpnmf" handle at a little bar in Bules Brothers back yard about 25 years ago.

    This being a family site I can't give much detail. Quite a funny tale. Pehaps around the campfire at the panhandle party in April.
     
  9. LEE J's!!  WOW!  If you spent any time there then you know Hambone.  25 years ago you might have been there the night a chick decided she was gonna take a scooter and leave...well she wrecked it and got skinned up. Well, I was the fat, young deputy sheriff that came out to check on the wreck and y'all was about to whoop me til bone stepped in...  You wasn't the dude in the black leathers were ya??
     
     
  10. No sir...they have been closed for some time.

     Hahahahahahahahaha.............. that's funny.

    I wasn't there for that incident, but do recall a lot of fairly insane incidents I was there for.

    I still hear from a few of those characters.
