LOL, never a mistake or a calculation error, always experimenting with new ingredients and amounts... I've never made a mistake in following the recipe, just deviated by a mile sometimes. No matter, its always been edible, sort of.

Glad it worked out for you.  When I make jerky I always double ck myself incase I added to much of this or that especially cure salt !!

For complicated recipes, it can be helpful to measure out all the ingredients into small bowls before blending anything together.  It makes it easier to see a mistake. 

For some of my seasoning blends, I weigh the ingredients.  When I blend everything together, I weigh the combined ingredients and compare that to the total weight I calculated I should have.  If it’s way off, I have a chance to decide if I’m going to start over.  Less expensive to dump some seasoning than have a batch of bad sausage.
