I cook my Summer Sausage to 145 and hold it there for 10 - 15 minutes to get a moister product.Bateria doesn't even start to die until you hit 126 and the lower the emp. the longer it takes to get a proper kill of them.

If you look at my attachment. Everything under 140 is considered the danger zone. Bateria will all die to a Log7 time frame time, but will take 380 minutes of it. 139 IT takes 15 minutes. You are not getting high enough to even start killing bacteria.

Are you trying to cold smoke with cure #2? This would not be Summer Sausage. Or working in Celsius?
