    commercial jerky will go a year or more on the shelf...
    refrigerated? who knows.[p]the main reason people originally made jerky was to store it at room temp for looong periods of time, so don't worry too much unless you'd like to keep it til the second coming

    Jwirlwind,[p]No more than a couple of days in my fridge. Egg jerky disappears pretty fast. If you're talking about spoilage, chances are none of us will ever know.[p]Ed
  • Jwirlwind,
    I always wanna know that too and shelf life too... How did the Indians do that?

    Jwirlwind, The leaner, drier and saltier it is, the longer it will last outside of the fridge. The fridge increases even more. Airtight packaging like food savers increase even more. [p]I foodsaver mine into small packages and it keeps out of the fridge for 2 months, at least.[p]Scott
