DIY Jerky Shooter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't want to spend $20 on a jerky shooter and I like building my own things.

I have a fairly new caulk gun, some 2" pvc, and a small sausage stuffer tube end. I'd need to buy a cap for the pvc, and build a piece of something to go on the caulk gun pushrod possibly. I'd cut the pipe to size. Put on the cap with a hole drilled in it to fit the stuffer tube and have a Jerky Shooter for about $2.

Anyone done this? I figure it could hold about 1 lb of meat.

Thanks.

This morning I cut the pvc pipe. Ended up being 7" and I'm using 1.5" pipe. It will only hold a little < 1/2 lb of meat. Should make 63" of 1/2" snack sticks per fill. Will be annoying filling it but I'll try it:).

I will once I finish.

I just mans a bigger one. 2" pipe. Kind of hard to fit in my caulk gun but it fits.

I'll finish it this evening.

I can't find my small sausage stuffer tube.
Can I just build an end cap and put a hole in it? Do I need to have a small tube on the end? I won't be using casings.

This one should make 100" of 1/2" snack sticks.

I am thinking you are going to need a tube.They make bell reducers for pvc.

Happy smoken.

I ended up making a tube. I'll be using a fat crayola marker for it. Took the guts out.

This is going to be polish ingenuity at its best:)
