First attempt at CB and have a question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am using Bears "Step by Step" and so far so good (I think) I guess I won't know for several days will I?

Question is, Bear says in refer at 37-38* for x amount of days. I am using the refer in our RV for my meat and using my Maverick to check temp I am running down to 34* with it set at its warmest setting. RV refers are not as adjustable as what we have in our homes and the temp will range from 38* down to 34* depending on the ambient temp.

Am I going to be alright?

Thanks for your input.

Dick

 

Thought the sale price was pretty good but the regular price a bit over the top!

TenderQuick and brown sugar per Bears "Step by Step"

And wrapped in the zip lock for a few days!

You will be fine.

 

I keep my fridge around 36 and the meat cures ok.

Thank you sir:

The only problem I see with this process is having to wait so many days to see how it turns out!

That's part of the fun, waiting.

Above 32 and below 40....is all you need, that meat will take the cure fine .at these temperatures. I cure meat during winter in my shed, it stays above freezing and on occasion has reached 40 degrees, but I have never lost any meat.  Happy smoking!
