Hey Guys, I just made my first batch of jerky and realized that I may have used too much cure #1. I used the recipe below that I found on this forum (originally posted by Big Lew BBQ)...
Marinade recipe for 10 lbs of meat.
1/2 C soy sauce
2 C water
1 tsp ground ginger
6 Tbs brown sugar
2 cloves minced garlic
.40 oz pink cure or 2 level teaspoons
What I didn't really pay attention to was that this was for 10lb of meat. I only had about 3.5lb of meat. Is 2 teaspoons too much cure #1 for the amount of meat I used? Will it be ok to eat or should I throw it out?
