How long can I wait?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a question for you seasoned smokers.  I have some venison strips that's been marinading for 24hrs.  I was going to put it in the smoker today after I got home from work.  We are having a wind/rain storm and our power has been going off and on all day.


My question is, how long can I wait to smoke it.  Weather should be better tomorrow.  Will the meat be OK until then?

Hey Don,

I'm not a veteran but those who are will prolly ask what you soaked the meat in? Salt brine? Buttermilk with flavor stuff?  If you can reply with your recipie you'll t more accurate help.


I've had an occasion when I spiced and cured beef jerky strips and had to keep in fridged an extra day.  No adverse effect from that.


Good luck, hope it goes well Thumbs Up


By the way, love yourprofile pic. I'm an Alaska boy. Love the smoked salmon !!

The marinade is........


  • 4 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. My rub
  • freshly ground salt and pepper


It's really good, this is the second batch.

You'll be fine. May just be a bit stronger flavored due to sitting in the marinade.

Any chance you could smoke in a gas BBQ??
