What are you curing? I'm in golden valley...and have cured a few things. I'm also a food microbiologist so could answer any questions!

Curing venison, sliced in 1/4" thick pieces.  I first started the drying process in our Convection oven and ran it from about 180 ° to 205°F for a half hour before transferring the trays into the dehydrator.  I figure the meat did actually warm to above 160°F during this time in the oven.

I made an earlier post before posting here in the roll call area.  I was told to post here by a moderator( I think).  Anyway, BELOW is the text from that first posting:

My first batch of two # of venision. . . 

I used Shore lunch spices and cure, measured correctly, refrigerated for 3 hrs and forgot to let it go the rest of the 24 hrs to fully cure. . .  I dehydrated it and vacuum packed it and placed in frig.  

Can I assume that it is still OK to eat as long as I keep it stored in the frig?

thanks.  Brian
