make cured meats like sausage & jerky, and brines for ham and bacon.
Backwoods® Meat Cure can be used in making sausage, pepperoni, jerky, bacon, ham, and brines. Our meat cure is a combination of about 94% salt and 6% sodium nitrite, which give meat the pink "cured" color that we're all familiar with in sausage and snack sticks. Often referred to as Prague Powder #1 or Insta Cure #1, our meat cure aids in the preservation of meat and helps:
  • Reduce the risk of botulism in meat
  • Slightly aid the preservation of meat
  • Enhance the flavor of the finished product
  • Give the finished product a pink "cured" color. (If cure is not used, your sausage will be a grey color)

How do I use it?
1 oz. of Cure for 25 lbs. of meat or a scant 1/4 teaspoon (1.1 g) for 1 lb. of meat. Do NOT overuse.
Directions for Use:
  • For Sausage: Mix LEM Cure, seasoning and water until well blended and then mix with meat. Stuff and smoke or cook sausage to internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • For a Standard or 20% Brine: For 100 lbs. of meat, mix 4 ozs. of Backwoods® Cure, 1 1/2 lbs. of salt, 1/4 lb. of sugar and 2 gallons of water. The salt and sugar levels may be adjusted to the desired final taste. Other spices or seasonings can be added for flavor.
