Thai Jerky Kicked up a bit

    I made some of Case's (dirtsailor2003) Thai jerky but knowing that my grandsons always ask me to add a little extra heat

    to the end product I decided to lightly sprinkle a little of McCormicks Hot Shot Pepper on it before I dried it out.  My  son

    had my dehydrator so I had to use the oven.  I may have added a little more of the hot shot than I thought  because the jerky

    will certainly get your attention when you take a bite.  Overall, pretty good but I think I'll try another batch with just black pepper.

    All in all, it still had the  Thai taste but with a kick.

    Here's the curing stage.


    Just before drying...


    The finished product...

    Not quite yet...my grandsons  will be over later today or tomorrow morning to  mow my yard.   That'll be the end of it. 

    Because of that, I call my one pound runs "samplers".

    If I made 1 pound, it would barely make it out of the smoker and it'd be gone!
     
  9. Looks really good! 

    My wife and son don't particularly go for spicy food, but they can't get enough of my spicy jerky when I make it. I'll have to give this hot shot spice a shot. I typically add some cayenne, dried pepper flakes and a tablespoon or 3 of Sriracha sauce to the marinade.
