Just realized that I had a brain fert on the canadian bacon I made. brined it for 10 days in pops brine recipe but I forgot to put a T of the cure in. I have already eaten about a 3 inch chunk. The rest has been in the freezer for a week. Is it a big gamble to eat it??

Just curious - how was the taste and the texture?  I assume it was more gray than pink?  Did it taste the same otherwise?? Cooking to the right temp should kill the bad guys, but Iearned that you don't taste the bad guys.  The bacteria that lead to spoilage likely won't make you sick but those are the ones that make the food taste rancid or give it an off texture.  I would think that your finished product would taste a little weird. But hey, they dry and wet age beef for weeks and that's supposed to make it better.  So who knows.

 

I personally would not eat it, but that's just me.

If we don't hear from you for awhile we will know why....   lol   Maybe shouldn't joke about that though.  I would be a little nervous but it was in the frig the whole time so with the salts and sugars it may be like our fore fathers did it.

You are cooking it before you eat it right? I've only heard people using Cure when using dehydrators or may be for jerky when using burger. I have never used the stuff but don't like or make dehydrated jerky.

 

Seem to still be alive! :lol:

took up to 153 in smoker.  I like it cold and fried. Have only eaten it cold so far from this one. 

 

Found  this on a brining site.

If you don’t have or don’t want to use curing salt containing sodium nitrite, you can brine meats without it. Without curing salt that contains sodium nitrite, the color of the cured meat will be gray rather than pink and the flavor is less sweet with a more pronounced “pickle” flavor. It turns out more like seasoned roast meat, than a cured meat.

 

It's nice and pink just like the others I have done, maybe the pickling salt somewhat cured it. who knows

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
