Hey everyone, just finished a 20lb batch of venison pepperoni(Original Wild West kit) in the new Weston smoker, maybe should have tried a 5lb kit to start but I made it through. Anyways smoked at around 90 for an hour and half with hickory chips, then transferred to the oven so I could get the next batch in the smoker. left in the oven at 170 until int temp was 155, then hung. Was wondering about the next step as the kit isn't really clear. It just finishes off saying hang at room temp to dry, but for how long? How long should this be good for? The kit came with sodium nitrite cure. Anyways, here are the pics, happy smoking!
