I have been making moose jerky for a few years now and use soya sauce for the cure . as you all know the jerky turns out all black in color. Got a bag of mortons tender quick , and is planning on using it in my recipe instead of soya , would like it to be a nice red color.
I usually smoke it for 2 hrs and then finish it without the smoke , with the tender quick will it be the red color i'm looking for? Anyone got a good recipe for a real sweet spicy jerky ?
