I have used Backwoods jerky cure for years and had great results. Got some Hi Mountain Jerky Mix for gift. My goodness did it turn out salty. I followed directions to a T. It calls for 2 full tablespoons and 2 teaspoons of cure per 4 lbs of game. Too bad I mixed up all five flavors that came in my gift and have them marinating in this salty mixture. Anybody ever had this experience? Did you just cut back on the cure? The cure in the Backwoods is just a tiny packet. I'm sick thinking that I ruined 20 lbs of deer.
