Cut the sharp ends off so the vac bags dont get holes.

Looks great. Is it more tender than non-ground jerky? I would assume so. What did you do with all the ends you cut off? I haven't sent you my address yet. biggrin.gif

I have just always thought of Jerky as a solid piece of muscle mass cut in thin strips and dried. I am sure if them old cowboys had ground there meat then dried it when they took it out of their saddlebags it would have been all crumbly.hit.gif

Well legally one would call it reconstituted jerky. People would be surprised to learn how much store bought jerky is actually Reconstituted Meat.

Most jerky that is whole muscle will state so.

I just ordered the lem # 8 patty maker and jerkey unit. I cant wait to give it a try. I wish i had elk but i will have to stand for a ground up roast and make reconstituted Jerky.icon_biggrin.gif

Actually they did have kind of a Restructured Jerky. It was called Pemmican. It still is but it just tastes a whole lot better. I had some authentic pemmican once and it was gross.

One would smash up the excess fat and scraps off the hide. Lots of fat and add berries and god knows what else mash it all together and dry in patties or strips. Full of energy and nutrients but would make a health bar taste great in comparison. Fish pemmican would really get your attention.
