Big batch of venison jerky

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Did a monster batch of jerkey today. Prepped it Thursday night. Started with 27.8 lbs and after slicing and trimming it all up, ended up with 26.7 lbs curing in Hi Mountain original with a little extra pepper and garlic.

Fired up the smoker this morning, put in the 26.7 lbs, plus another 8 lbs my buddy brought over and six hours later, ended up with 16 lbs. Smoker never got over 180 and ran 165 - 170 most of the day.

I like the Hi Mountain product, too. My favorite is the Sweet & Spicy, but I'll marinate my venison in some brown sugar/soy sauce/garlic/crushed red pepper mixture for at least 24 hours before using the cure.

Thanks guys. I used hickory and apple. The smoker is an old computer server cabinet that we repurposed. Works great for jerky.
