Ground Jerky Curing Time



  • I believe the recommended curing time is 12 hours but can I go less than that? I was expecting my order to be here tonight and it won’t be here till tomorrow morning now.

    I was going to mix up my batch of jerky tonight but will have to do it tomorrow on my lunch break. Just wondering if tomorrow evening would be long enough to let the meat cure.

    Thanks,

    Weston

    @wrobben4848 While the recommended time is 12 hours, and that is what will give you the best result, you can cut that time down to 8-10 hours without too much difference. You might not get the meat to burn a really nice reddish/pink but since you are making jerky you don’t need to worry about that too much, you just want the curative properties. Good luck!

    That will make a nice smoker
    For my home build for the pid i used fireboard which is wifi then you would be able to control your smoker from your cellphone from anywhere you have cell service. the door gasket i got from Amazon 1 inch stove rope gasket . heating element i made mine 220 VAC electric dryer element 5400 watt. The fireboard is meant to control a 12 volt fan but wired it up to a solid state relay which turns the heating element on and off accordingly to the temperature you set.
