I've been busy turning the last 12 lbs of my ground venison (last meat left of my 2013 deer) into jerky for my elk trip. Anyway, I've used 3 different store-bought spice/cure mixtures and they're all crap. Waaaayyyy too salty. I could cut the total amount of spice used in half, but then I've be losing out on the actual flavor also. It's too late for this deer, but looking forward to next year I'd like a get a spice mix together that isn't all salt, or make one of my own. Anyone have any good ideas?
