I'm making my first batch of ground jerky. Do I need to cure it over night? The instructions show curing the none ground method but says nothing about curing the ground version. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I use those packs that come with season and cure salt, to do about 5lbs of meat at a time.  LEM is the brand name that I have now, from Academy Sports.  Anyhow I will do about 4 to 5lbs of ground meat, mix it and put it right in the dehydrator.   I think the longest I have ever let any sit before putting it in the dehydrator was a couple hours,  didn't seem to make a difference.

Well I did about 4 pounds of meat and used the LEM packet. I used about 3-1/2 tsp of the curesalt and about 4/5 of the seasoning packet. Let it sit over night and then used the flat tip and dried them in the oven on 180 for 3 hours (1-1/2 then flipped). They came out good. Next time I will try adding some chilis to the mix, maybe some stout beer instead of water too, mmmm.

I have used Hi-mountain products that have turned out good. Seasoning comes with instructions for both sliced and ground meat, plus shaker. They have a website and stores carry it also. Also try their buckboard bacon seasoning and cure to make "Butt Bacon". (Make bacon from pork butts)
