I just took my first foray into charcuterie and packed 13 venison salami yesterday using 1 tbs Instacure#2 to 5 lbs ground venison/smoked bacon tips/pork backfat/ country pork rib....Tonight I mixed up 7.5 ground venison to soak overnight in a jerky marinade. I used 1.5 tbs Instacure#2 but realize this is for a long cure like my salami. If my plan is to put the jerky strips in a dehydrator can I still use the Instacure#2 and eat it or will this pose a health risk with the added nitrates?(I should have Prague Powder#1) Worried I just wasted 7.5lbs of ground but would rather do that than risk a health issue. Sorry odd first post but thought you all might know.
