Reading through the many post on making jerky I have managed to confuse myself. Is marinate the same as cure? I see reference to TQ and other off the shelf mixes like Hi Mountain, and some marinates. In one post had the following listed: 1-1.5 lbs meat 1.5 cups of water 2 tablespoons canning salt 2 table spoons soy 1 table spoon worstichire 1 table spoon garlic marinate 4-12 hours and smoke in the chief until done. So what is the correct? Thanks in advance.
