Chicken Dog Jerky!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My Sous Chef had been driving me nuts wanting to use the sausage stuffer, so I compromised and let him run the jerky cannon. We had some chicken thighs so made some snacks for the dogs. Using Hi-Country Grand Champ mix for this. We were given this for Xmass.

Started with 4.62 pounds of bone in thighs. After removing the bone and skin ( left about 40% of the skin on) we ended up with 3.2 pounds of meat.

Save this skin for Schmaltz making. !

Hank loves chicken and is super excited about this project. He wouldn't leave the kitchen. Every time I check on the smoker he's right there!

And that's for the DOG!!!! Great Sous Chef. Teach and take advantage of his enthusiasm now. A handsome young man will not be hangin' with Dad once he finds GIRLS are more fun to play with...JJ

Ain't that a fact! He loves cooking and smoking! These snacks are not only for dogs, they are edible for humans too!

Looks like a great time! How long drying? Smoking?

It's always good to have help from the kids...

I was in Costco today and they had ahi jerky for sale. I looked at the ingredients and it's the same as making poke! I'm thinking ahi poke jerky sticks... Hmm, worst thing that could happen is the dogs get a snack!

Happy smoken.

I dried them in the GOSM for about 4 hours to get the texture I was looking for. Per the instructions I first took the sticks up to on IT of 165° (156° if these had been beef or pork). How does one take the IT of a 1/8" thick piece of meat? Lay the probe on the meat and then fold over the meat onto the top of it.

 

No smoke the seasoning I used had powdered smoke in it.
