I am planning to make dried sausage sticks (modified slim jims) The recipe calls for instacure #1. I was given a 25lb box of pink Hellers cure which contains salt, 6.25% sodium nitrite and an anitcaking agent. (No Nitrates) The directions say to use 1/4lb of cure per 100 lbs. of meat. Can I use this Hellers cure in all recipies that call for instacure #1? (I don't know the ingredients of Instacure #1)
2nd question is the recipe I have calls for pulling the sticks out of the smoker at an internal temp of 145F and placing in a dry room at 50-55 degrees F? Since I have no way of keeping the meat at 50-55F at home, is it safe to assume they need to be kept in a refrigerator?
