Thank you very much for creating thiz thread, your timing couldn't be more convenient. I hope you understand my ?

I made a drying locker out of a small commercial freezer using an inline voltage regulator with a digital control. I can set it where I want. Before I had that tho, all my curing was done in the fridge, next to the beer n' such. I never had any problems. As I understand it, ideal curing temps are 36°F to 40°F. Below 36°, the curing process will slow down, and possibly stop.
