Did I need to rinse jerky?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am making some jerky. While it is in the smoker I am reading through the forum. I see some people rinse their jerky after marinating it and others dont mention it. I am making 2 ponds of teriyaki. I used 1/2 tsp of cure #1 in the marinade. Marinated 36 hours. Was I supposed to rinse it? I just laid it out and patted it dry. It has been in the smoker for 2 hours now. I hope I didnt screw this up.

I do not with my jerky recipe but I could see if I used a different recipe where I might want to. Give it a try and see what happens.

Solar, do you use a cure in yours?

I don't rinse mine at all and I use cure. Try to keep the temp under 160° or you will start cooking it instead of drying it. icon14.gif

Really no need to rinse, all your doing is rinsing flavor off.

 

Just dont re use your marinade, make new everytime.
