    Smoked and Cured offered this 1 kg of #1 Cure for the best price I could find in Australia. The zip lock bag makes using and storing the #1 Cure simple. I made some bacon this week using the #1 Cure and it was superb. It had that cured nitrite dark pink colour and it looks and tastes as bacon should. I recommend this product.

  • Awesome product
