I'm new to smoking meats and just today mixed up my first batch of venison summer sausage. My question is, I bout the LEM mix but I failed to recognize that it stated to dissolve both cure and mix. Instead, I evenly spread both over the meat and then added the water and mixed away. I do feel that I it mostly dissolved in the meat well as there was water in the pan that I kept mixing in to the water.
So, is this safe? I hope I didn't ruin the batch. Thanks for any help.
