Pink Salt/Sausage Casings in Vancouver

WinthropBasil Jan 11, 2014 11:27 AM

Hey, anybody know where to get ahold of either of these things in Vancouver or Burnaby? I know I can go to Stuffer's Supply Co. in Langley, but would rather go somewhere a little closer if possible.

        Yes, Prague powder and curing salt are the same thing. However, Prague powder # 5 is for brining(corned beef and stuff like that) #1 and # 2 contain sodium nitrate and nitrite and are designed for dry curing. That's what I'm trying to find
