failed to cure?! still OK if refrigerate?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My first batch of two # of venision. . . 

I used Shore lunch spices and cure, measured correctly, refrigerated for 3 hrs and forgot to let it go the rest of the 24 hrs to fully cure. . .  I dehydrated it and vacuum packed it and placed in frig.  

Can I assume that it is still OK to eat as long as I keep it stored in the frig?

 

Thanks.

How long did you dehydrate it and at what temp.

Happy smoken.

It was dehydrated for about two hours in a range from about 135° to 155°F.  That is the variation in my LEM unit when left at 150°F.

 

THE meat is plenty dry, chewy but soft, not hard as Links typical Jerky on the shelves. It tastes fine.

 

again, storing in the frig, vacuum bagged.
