2 years ago I made up some bait from hunks of meat. I have forgot how to stop the aging process. I have a jar of meat that is really ripe.

Use about 1 cup sodium benzoate per gallon. Or 1 cup borax.

Hal, does the borax cause any type of smell down the road in the meat?

Smells like borax. But that doesn't matter.
