i made up a batch of "buffalo wing" chicken jerky....so i've been marinating thin sliced chicken in hot sauce, morton's TQ, worst. sauce, and other spices. i put the chicken in the fridge last thursday and with rain, being sick and other stuff going on i still haven't had a chance to smoke/dehydrate it. do you guys think its still ok to smoke and eat if i get it done tonight? been in the fridge for almost a week? do i need to throw it away an start over?
