Omg.. this is the best beef jerky I have ever eaten. I'm seriously gonna eat the whole dam 2 bags I made. The Kids love it. My Friends love it. It was so darn good. I made both the Jalapino and Origonal form High Mountan and let it marinate in the fridge for 2 days. I would say its a tad bit to salty so i'll use less spice mixture next time , but all together its the best darn jerky i ever ever ate. I am very proud of myself thanks to you guys. On a sad note. My bradley burner burnt out , but i finished drying it off in the oven no big deal. Now the question is how long dose this stuff last in the fridge? If i vaccum seal it how long will it last , dose it have to be frozen?
