Ordered this to make the Good Eats recipe for corned beef. Corned beef resulted. 6 more words are apparently required.

Well packed and shipped quickly. I have already used this for Pancetta, Pastrami, maple cured bacon, canadian bacon, and elk jerky. Works great.

Use this to make your own homemade bacon. Worked perfectly and once you make homemade bacon, you won't go back to storebought!!

I received the order and it was just as advertised and arrived in fine condition. I'm very happy with it. In fact, as a result of the homemade bacon I was able to make using this product, family and friends are very happy with it too :) Its packaged nicely in a convenient plastic resealable bag.

So it's sodium nitrate. I cured 8lbs of pork belly for a week and smoked it for 3 hours. Came out amazing. The only minor issue is the bag it gets sent in. It's a zip top and the tiny granules get stuck in the grooves. Not a big deal, I just transfered the salt to tupperware.

Worked as advertised - made a great corned beef brisket. Just what I was looking for. Looking forward to trying it in other cured meat recipes.

I've never cured any meats before, but got "the bug" to make some homemade bacon. I was able to buy raw pork bellies at my local Mexican market, so went to Amazon to see about curing salt.

DQ Curing Salts caught my eye - the price was good, it sounded like exactly what I needed (pink salt) and so I purchased it.

It arrived promptly, I went and scored a 4 pound pork belly, found a recipe online that I liked the looks of, and away we go! Rubbed it with a mix of pink salt, sugar, and regular salt. After 8 days of turning the belly over daily, it was ready to go in the smoker. I used my Little Chief electric smoker, for 2 hours with 2 pans of hickory chips. I let the pork cool, the refrigerated overnight, then put it in the freezer to really firm up so I could use my electric slicer.

Well let me tell you this is the BEST bacon ever! I'm going to be experimenting now with different rubs, different wood chips, and maybe some maple syrup - so I bet I'll be buying more DQ Curing Salts before I know it!

Used this to home cure a ham, then smoked it on my Big Green Egg. Best ham ever! Wow, this stuff really works. If using still water (i.e., no pumps) I recommend curing 1 day for every two pounds.
