I am looking for good jerky recipe that includes curing salt so as to help it keep longer. I'm not sure on the ratio's in this application.

That ratio is only if you are using Mortons Tender-Quick, if you use that much cure #1, it would not be safe to eat.

if you can weigh your cure, each pound of meat requires 1.4 grams of cure #1.

Or 1 level teaspoon for each 5 pounds.

Salt; I like to use 0.75 tablespoon per each pound
And just enough black pepper to add some color. after its curing period, I rinse, drain, and dry slowly at low smoker temps, (it takes about 4 hours when I do it)

The cure helps with shelf life, but it's main use is to keep it safe by not allowing deadly bacteria to grow when smoking at low temps for long periods.
You may still get mold growth when cured, minimize bare hand contact to help avoid mold, or it can be treated with a potassium sorbate solution.

No. Tenderquick is not a tenderizer - it is a cure.

http://www.mortonsalt.com/contact-us contact Mortons via email, they will tell you where you can buy it locally, or will sell it to you online.

You should be able to find it in the Canning & preservation section in any walmart or Ace Hardware, and in the spices/baking needs section of the grocery store.

It is in a 3# blue bag.
Go to walmart and find the canning jars and lids, and dehydrators, chances are that it'll be right there.

I have shipped it to a few people, let me know, I do it at my cost as a favor.

here is another option, http://www.butcher-packer.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=237_12

You may just want to get a pre-measured jerky curing mix too?

When I do jerky, I keep it simple, Only cure, salt & pepper.
I let the flavor of the meat and smoke be my primary flavors. And I sell the heck out of the stuff when I have it.
