My plan is to do some jerky tomorrow. Last night I added a tbl of tenderquick per pound of meet. So, the cure has been working for about 24 hours. I am not a huge fan of really salty jerky. So my questions is, can I rinse off the cure tonight and then marinate overnight with a different marinade that doesn't have the TQ? Or does the cure actually need to stay for the smoking extravaganza tomorrow. I imagine some of the saltiness will stay in the beef, but I am just hoping to cut a little bit out. I know I can get different cures, but that is all I had in the cupboard.
