I smoked a venison loaf (50% deer mix w/ 50% pork). Basically put the ground meat in an aluminum cake pan and placed in the smoker over night. I wanted an internal temp of 152 degrees but I had to get to work so I pulled it out at 150 degrees. It was in the smoker from 10pm to about 7am. I did mix cure in as well. Is it safe to eat with an internal temp of 150 degrees?

Sounds risky to me. Ground venison and ground pork smoking for 9hrs and only reaching 150 IT. Not sure about the cure making it safe. I could be totally wrong as I'm an American not an astronaut. Maybe someone has some solid advice

The cure will make it safe for the long smoke. Not sure about using aluminum thou

Thanks for the info. I appreciate everyone's thoughts and ideas. Attached are a couple of pics. I took the loaf from the alum pan and placed only the loaf in the smoker. Attached are a couple of pics of the "loaf crust" as well as a couple of the inner slices. It tastes fine but I was concerned with the IT of 150.
