I bought a bag of the Smoke flavored sugar cure at a local store cuz I hadn't seen it before. Wouldn't do it again....
Smells REALLY strange! Honestly, it reminded me of the strong chemical smell of a plastic trash bag. and it felt like the silica sand that you sprinkle on a shuffle board game table.
It also comes with a small packet inside that says to mix a 1 -1/4 tsp with 1 cup of cure. It says that if you don't use the mix of the 2 within a few days you should discard it... what happens to it after a few days??
I used it on a brisket when I made pastrami, which turned out great with no off flavors, but I probably would not try it again... stick with TQ!
