Nothing made for cigars would work that I have found. Maybe with some modification the hydra would though.



edit- At least not low enough for dry aging beef or drying sausage. I can't remember off the top of my head what is best for curing.

Perhaps a cheapo humidifier and a humidity controller:

Kinda spendy then though... $200 for humidity control? We have to be able to do better than that.

About 6 months or so ago I was really looking hard and planning my meat fridge. I want it to be both temperature and humidity controlled. Everything electronic or automated was going to be really expensive. I did find some passive humity controllers but the only place I found required a pretty large order. I can't remember exactly but it was some sort of dessicant that would do different levels of humidity. Very similar actually to the heartfelt beads.

OK, I think I have a solution and need to put it down here...

and the humidity controller from Dwyer or something similar.

It might work but most household humidifiers are known to be terrible with bacteria and whatnot. Not too big of a problem in a bedroom but not something I would want around meat. Just my opinion though.

Could be... but those ultrasonic humidifiers stay pretty wicked clean. I use distilled water in ours and it smells brand new after over a year (we have one for our daughters room).

Instead of a dried sausage, why not start with simpler cured meats. Like a nice smoked polish? I usually make the recipe found in Rytek Kutas' book, but I like about twice the amount of garlic.

For me(at least) dried/cured will end up being easier. I could mod a dorm fridge in an apartment. I can't have a smoker, cooker, bbq or any kind of open flame in or near my building. I don't think they would even take too kindly to a cold smoke smoker, since afterall, it will be putting off smoke.

I never thought to use distilled water in it, even though thats what I use in my humidor.
