So, I was curing 2 turkey breasts to do this and wouND up curing then for almost 3 weeks (circumstances). Will they be ok if I soak them long enough? I he done it with pork belly and loin and never had a problem, just wasn't sure due to it being poultry. Thanks KS in advance!
21 Days is a long time for Dry Curing , but soaking long enough should take care of it.

Just keep Fry-Testing small pieces, and changing the water until you're happy with the Salt Flavor.

I know its a long time, it wasnt intentional. As long as salt is my only issue, I will be fine.....soak soak and more soak. I just didn't want the tueky to go bad......I guess I have more fear of poultry. 

Thanks Bear!

Like I said, you should be good to go with some soaking.

Some say you can add a few cut up potatoes to the water to absorb some salt, but I think if I ever had to soak that long, I would just change the water a few times.

Another 10 year old Thread I had to fix the picture in.
Should be good to go now, other than the Smoking process being the "Old Way" Before AMNPS.

This was a long time ago that I did these, but I can still remember how good those snacking strips ended up.
