Home made jerky

I have a friend that works for Hi Mountain Jerky Co. in Wyoming. She sent me some of their jerky cure yesterday and I already made some with my venison back straps. Oh man is this stuff good. Marinate/cure it for 24 hours and dry it in the oven for 2 hours. Out of this world!!!!! The Bourbon BBQ is the one I tried. I have a batch of Mandarin Teriyaki in the oven now!!! This stuff is outstanding...and I was skeptical

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I bought one of those diy jerky things on tv a long time ago, with the plastic racks. It takes like 24 hours and you have to buy a lot more meat then you think, but oh man, is it great. I love beef jerky, it has been my best friend on many a road trip. I even pack it on the bike when I go riding. The problem with buying it from a store is half the time it's done wrong.

really any solid muscle will work. Most people will use a top round or similar cut. This stuff is a cure so itll break down even the crappy cuts of meat. Slice it when its partially frozen so you get a nice even 1/4" thick slice.

Wife bought me a dehydrator for Christmas. Marinade the meat overnight then it only takes 4-6 hours to dry.

I made slim jims outta ground beef and jerky outta skirt steak.

I tastes awesome but it stinks up the house bad. I was able to cut the stink by putting the dehydrator under the oven hood.

It also makes great strawberrys, pineapple slices, and pears. The pears I peeled and soaked for 10 minutes in honey and lime juice. They were messy to eat and so were the pineapple slices. Next time I'm trying canned fruit because its already peeled and soaked in sugar.

Strawberries are great. Jewel had the buy 1 get 1 free deal on a pound of them. Usually I can't eat them fast enough and they go bad after a week (2 pounds is hard 2 eat). Now I just dry em, put em in a bag, and dump them on my Capt Crunch every morning for 2 months!

Blah, Blah, Blah

a lot of store beef jerky is made from "mechanically separated chicken"-- read the package. my bf and I discovered it on a road trip once a long time ago and we still laugh about it to this day. I actually had to go on the internet and look up what "mechanically separated chicken" was.

but there's nothing beating those days when my bf eats the nacho cheese-injected jerky. It means I have a good excuse to not kiss him. *barf*
