Tried to make some jerky in the MES40 when I got home from work. Turned out a little more done than it probably should have been. I set the MES40 at 170* and installed my new ET732 while it was going. The ET732 was registering between 185* and 205*. I only used half of what I had meat wise and will try again in the morning before I try baby back ribs for the first time. I'm thinking maybe set the temp at 155-160* and check it at the same 4 hours timeframe and check if there done. I also will probably only smoke for the first hour instead of 2 hrs. Sorry forgot to take pics of the before but did get a couple of the afters.
I was reading another topic about somebody who used to much Morton Tender quick. The recipe I used was one I found on this site from a couple of years ago. It said to use 1.5 tsp per pound of meat if marinating for 24 hours. I used 6 tsp's for a little over 4# of meat. Does that seem right? I just want to make sure everything is safe going forward.
