Just wanted to get some help from you seasoned jerky makers out there.
I have several pounds of bacon in my freezer (just won an entire processed hog from a raffle!)
I was at the gas station the other day and saw some bacon jerky. I was interested, so I tried it. Basically tasted like dryed bacon with some jerky seasoning on it. I thought it tasted pretty darn good. I thought since I have so much bacon in my freezer maybe it would be fun to make some jerky out of it. Although it brought up some questions in my mind.
Since the bacon is already cured, I assume that I should NOT add any additional cure. ? . Perhaps they start with uncured bacon?
Can i just season with whatever jerky seasoning and throw on the dehydrator? or put in the smoker to be double smoked?
Of course I always use very lean beef when making jerky. I would think there would be a huge grease mess. Wouldn't the fat go rancid?
I'm hoping there's maybe a few of you who have already attempted this.
