marinating overnight?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My wife bought me a jerky gun and several jerky kit mixes. I read the ingredients on each one. They all contain nitrite so I was happy about that. I read through the instructions in each kit. Most have packets of cure and seasoning premeasured for 5 pounds of meat. The instructions seem a little on the brief side. It basically says mix the cure, seasoning, and a few tablespoons of water. Add to five pounds of meat and then load it into the gun. Any idea why they wouldn't recommend storing it in the fridge overnight so the cure and seasoning can do its magic?

Wd, maybe the mix would set up and not go through the gun as easy ????

X 2 if you do let it sit over night it will be hard, you can add more water and that will make it go a little easier. Best to load the gun and make the strips then fridge for the night.Hope this makes sense.

Oh that does make sense y'all. I wasn't even considering that! I'll give that a whirl on my next batch. Thanks!
