  • I have been doing much reading in this forum about the use of READY CURE. Many Thanks for all the info especially STEVE FROM CALEDON - Cheers.
    I am also from Ontario and agree that the Prague Powder or Pink # 1 is next to impossible to find, but thanks  to this forum I was introduced to READY CURE as a substitute.
    In regards to Canada Compound only selling Pink # 1 in 25kg bags, somebody made the joke about splitting one. That might be an option, as I know several people im my area that would probably be interested in a idea.
    Anyways, my question about the use of READY CURE is : Do you need to add the salt to the cure that the recipies calls for when using the ready cure vs. Prague Power # 1? and if so - at what rate?

    Any & all help or ideas will be awesome
