So, what's you assessment for your jerky. was that a good sale for you? How did your product hold up on the shelf for a month? Any repeat customers?
Yep..tested the hypothesis. With using cure..getting it pretty dry and using the desiccant packs it will last a month on the peg board. Just threw out a few bags which was out of date in fact. The gel packs seem to be sensitive to the amount and in some strange way to the moisture content. One pack of the size I have works about right for a 3 oz bag. On the 1 oz bag it dries it out like a mummy. I am officially retiring the one oz size. I was talking to an old airplane maker the other day. He says he has some dessicant packs which weigh a pound or two each and packed in with airplane motors. Who woulda thunk it?
