Jonathon Thanks much Jonathan, well if that’s the case it’s a no brainer NOT to mix in the cure prematurely. I’d hate to waste a good batch Jerky cause the cure didn’t work. Thanks again for the great info.
craigrice Yeah, I did something with that a few years ago at home. It was really interesting, if I remember correctly I liked it but thought it was closer to tomato paste than ketchup. Not sure what brand it was, but don’t think it was a major one like Badia.
JonathonAustin will grow up. Let high blood pressure hit (along with all the joys of getting old). On a serious note, salt is more of an acquired taste. Part of the process food industry is to hook people on all the salt and other additives. The body will begin to crave those things.
I have the 20lb mixer too and I split the 25lb seasonings in half as well as the cures and additives to 12 1/2 lbs of meat and was a perfect amount for 20lb mixer. Much more easier and efficient than doing by hand. To do the full 25lb mix, best with the bigger mixer
