    Default Venison Jerky Help

    HELP!!!Ive made some good jerky but a buddy of mine makes the best I ever had.So I wanted him to show me the way he does his.First I took my meat out of the freezer Tuesday nite and put in the sink over nite,then into the fridge Wednesday nite.Thursday we sliced it up and I used High Mountain jerky cure then back in the fridge.He said he could return the following Thursday and we could smoke it.I said is it going to be ok to let it stay in the fridg that long and he said no problem especially with the cure. Thursday we smoked it,it smelled great when I opened the plastic and it taste wounderful.Yesterday I woke up with a migraine and spit up some bile.Was seven day's too long.It could be from somthing else and I certanley don't want to waste the jerky.Need some help here.I want to eat it again but have reservation's.

    yeah 7 days seems a bit long. Do you cook or dehydrate your jerky?

    That sounds better that trying it yourself and getting the results.

    If you are smoking the meat at 300 you should be fine. most bacteria will be killed by that temp. 7 days is a long time but if the meat was no good you would be very ill and would get that way very fast. as a young boy I went through an echo school and they taught us that most meat that is not exposed to the guts can be eaten for a long time as long as it is cooked all the way through. actually some people age red meats for up to two months at around 40f in a dry place so you should be good to go.

    I was eating it for a day and a half with no issue and it was just that one day and I'm fine. Thanks
