Last night i prepared meat with Hi Mountain Jerky Kit and it is suppose to be -12 below tonight....can i save it for a few days or 5 ( weekend) without it turning bad? 5#'s in the fridge in a zip loc baggie.  Will it be to strong, spoiled, etc....? Ty

Its supposed to cure for several days not just overnight in most cases. What kind of meat are you curing?

Its some kinda beef, of course..i bought it a while ago....it says to refrigerate for 24 hours, so I called Hi Mountain, and they said it will be fine, just a little saltier..Joe
Beuler. The same thing happened to me over Thanksgiving. My jerky sat in the Ziploc for 5 days. Some of my friends and family said it was the best teriyaki jerky they have ever had. 

I personally thought it was to strong. I should have either rinsed the meat off before smoking or added some water to the mix.
