    I bought the 40" Masterbuilt, and rolled across the Masterbuilt Venison jerky recipe. (see below)....It does not call for cure, but i read lots about people using a cure. Would it be safe to follow the instruction/recipe below?

    Thanks for the Help!


    Venison Jerky

    ½ cup Brown Sugar
    1/8 cup Worchestshire
    ½ tsp Garlic salt
    ½ cup Soy sauce
    ½ tsp Dry mustard
    ¼ cup Salt
    Dash of Pepper
    3 cups Water

    Suggested Wood for Smoking
    Hickory or mesquite chips

    Cut meat into ¼” to ½” thick strips about 5” long and 1 ½” wide. Combine all marinating ingredients in a small bowl until blended well. Marinate meat for 6 to 8 hours. Dry and place in pre-heated smoker at 140 degrees. Smoke for 12 to 16 hours.
  2. I would add cure to it if it were me and allow at least 24 hours before smoking. I wouldn't slice it any thicker than 1/4".

    I would say hit the search bar at the top of any page. Their are so many jerky recipes you will still be reading this time next week.

    Happy smoken.
