Hello, I'm Wendy from North Eastern PA.

Been hunting for a good part of my life. We process our own deer. I make jerky every year and stick occasionally. Wanting to start getting into stick making more. There is lots of options here at Walton’s. Definitely a good place to come and explore. I am going to be slowly stepping up my game and purchasing some better equipment to make my experience less back breaking because right now all I have is a normal kitchen aid mixer for my grinder and stuffer. Kinda weak. And my oven. We will see how things go.
I’d say 30-45 days still isn’t too long. I wouldn’t go much past 45 though.
As long as it is still in the original vacuum packaging, and the packaging doesn’t start to expand (gas released from the meat), you should be fine wet aging for quite some time. When you open the package, you should notice pretty quickly if it sat too long and spoiled. The odor will be quite foul and noticeable. So, I’d shoot for the 30-45 day mark, and you should be good with that.
