Ive used it a bunch. I always wipe the pieces off (fat) many times during dehydrating. It WILL mold, even in the fridge in short order. I just dont make any more than I can eat in a few days, unless you freeze it. I wish I could figure a way out to make it less salty tho

Are you using salt or the processing cure???

I have always used the curing salt mixed in the ground meat along with the seasonings. Its good, but always saltier than I would like.

The molding problem is foreign to me for the time period you are talking about. Perhaps you aren't using enough cure, or it's not getting mixed in enough (or it's not fully dehydrating)??

In general, the refrigerator isn't a bad thing for the jerky just as an added precaution, but I left plenty of CURED jerky out on the counter in a ziplock bag for a solid week with no ill effects.
