    so everyone these days is concerned with sodium content in foods, i was wondering if there was a easy way to measure or guestimate the amount (%) in jerky recipes.

    For instance the only sodium in mine is from worsty sauce and tender quick....anyone have any methods of measure this or is it impossible without fancy tests?
  2. That's a great question. Someone should be along that might be able to answer that. I'm sure there is a formula somewhere.

    It all depends on how many pounds your making. Remember if you soy it will have salt.


    When i make my backwood hillbilly wet marinade jerky i use 1 cup soy and 2 Tbs salt. This is for 5 lbs of strip jerky.

    Its easier to add ingredients than it is to take out.
