Pink curing salt in Boston?

So, I want to cure and smoke some homemade bacon, but does anyone know or has seen any stores in the Boston area that sells Prague powder or pink curing salt?

    A little searching will work wonders, just in case it isn't covered in the posts have you tried Christina's in cambridge?

    1. Instacure #1 can be found.Cristina's, Bass Pro, maybe even Wallmart.
      Instacure #2, not so much.

      1. I bought pink curing salt at Williams Sonoma. I'm sure you can find it cheaper on line somewhere. But there is a WS near me and I could pick it up that day.

          2nd William Sonoma, you can buy a small jar, and won't use it up on a batch of bacon.

            This where I buy curing salt.

            They have everything you could want for curing and fermenting food. Instacure is reasonably priced.

          2. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I did some looking around, and I actually found an 8 oz. package of Instacure on eBay for a very reasonable price.
