    Default Beef Jerky

    Does anyone make their own jerky?

    I used to make it with a cheap dehydrator, but it never really turned out right. I mean, it's still jerky so it was good, but I'm looking to expand. At Cabela's, they have a Jerky Gun that allows you to squeeze out small strips on a cookie sheet and bake it.

    They are good, but greasy and taste sort of generic. It's a cheap alternative, but I'm not impressed with their seasonings.

    Another route would be a real smoker/dehydrator which is not cheap. My uncle bought two industrial dehydrators and if he was closer, it'd be a lot more convenient.

    Your thoughts?

    I don't make beef jerky but I make deer jerky. though I'm sure its the same process.
    We use a deli style meat slicer such as this one,
    http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CH0Q8wIwAA
    we Slice it about 1/8 inch thick, no thicker.
    Time for marinade! it doesn't matter what marinade you use, we use something like this one:
    http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1627...254193,00.html
    Though we don't use those exact ingredients. you can create your own, or go off of one you already like and adjust the ingredients to your taste.
    We let it marinade overnight in the fridge, sometimes two days.
    After it has been in the fridge over night put it on a dehydrator, we use one like this:
    http://www.target.com/p/Ronco-5-Tray...gpa=pla&ci_kw=
    we shift the trays every few hours so that the deer meat dehydrates evenly. Usually about eight to twelve hours depending on your thickness

    I would absolutely love to but I have no idea how.
    I love jerky so much, but here in the UK it isn't that big of a deal and it's like 2.60 for a shitty little packet.

    edit: that "jerky gun"...looks just like one of those insulant guns you use for bathrooms and shit.
    couldn't you make your own jerky gun?

    I'm sure you could do something to make your own gun, however nothing beats a dried out, heavily salted slab of beef. Compared to a strip of dried hamburger, anyway.

    I could live off of jerky.

    I love beef jerky. I would like to try deer, and alligator. I've been thinking about making my own, since when I have a 'jerky habit' I spend $5-10 a day on it. Love the stuff, and I've only been able to eat stuff like Jack Links.

    Thats not a jerky gun. Thats a slim jim gun.

    The best jerky is smoked. No way to get around that.

    Your thoughts?
    Couldn't you sell jerky to some of your co-workers or friends to help pay for the machine?

    guyse guess what im eating.

    http://www.discoverunearthed.com/pro...-beef-biltong/

    biltong is pretty much jerky amirite.

    yeah this stuff is awesome...we only get jack links here, this is the 2nd type of jerky i've seen here in uk ever...this stuff compared to jack links is awesome. it's totally lean, no fatty, gristly pieces whatsoever. nice big pieces too, and a fairly full bag.

    shame its like 2.60 a bag still but w/e.

    Biltong is made similar to jeky but tastes a lot different. It's still nice though. A local pub used to sell it and occasionally, when I was drunk enough to spend 2.50 on a bar snack, I'd get some.

    I prefer jerky though.

    I think it tastes identical tbh.
    Either that or this waitrose jerky is actually just jerky branded as biltong.

    I eat peppered, smoked, grilled, maple, thin cut, and thick cut bacon but it all comes from a pig. Whatever that shit is you're talking about, reminds me of bacon...but in beef jerky form. Which is pretty much the most appealing thing I have ever seen.
