Maybe she can post the whole thing for us ( not that any of us are wantin to sneak a peek :-) )
so we can see the context in which it is stated??
Yes, but I think she is talking about one of them being like one I saw awhile ago. Everyone seems to be missing the point here.
I'll say it again:
One of the recipes calls for 3 to 4 hours of hanging, after mixing, but before smoking. That recipe never hits the fridge at all. They are apparently "curing" it in 3 to 4 hours at ROOM TEMP!?!?!
So it's not just that 3 to 4 hours is "short", it isn't even refrigerated!
I haven't tried to find that old recipe that I read once, because I was hoping somebody would tell us how this is a good thing to do. If others start to say "That is NO GOOD!", then I will search for it, or maybe Cheryl still has the location of that one.
I hope I finally explained this good enough for someone other than Cheryl & I to understand.
