    Its supposed to cure for several days not just overnight in most cases. What kind of meat are you curing?

    Its some kinda beef, of course..i bought it a while ago....it says to refrigerate for 24 hours, so I called Hi Mountain, and they said it will be fine, just a little saltier..Joe

    Beuler. The same thing happened to me over Thanksgiving. My jerky sat in the Ziploc for 5 days. Some of my friends and family said it was the best teriyaki jerky they have ever had. 

    I personally thought it was to strong. I should have either rinsed the meat off before smoking or added some water to the mix.
