Thanks for the points!

Yes I'd do it again, but probably not this year! I definitely wouldn't do it with just one roast either. That's a lot of time and fuel to waste for just one roast.

So instead of Jerky would you call this like "dried beef" you said

About the texture it's hard to describe. Dry but moist. Not chewy. Good bark on the exterior. Really tasty.



 

Would you call this "dried beef" instead of Jerky then?? It almost looks like you could "chipped beef" if it had a gravy with it kinda reminds me of SOS while i was in the service LOL 

 

yours looks great - :points:

It's more along the lines of dried beef, texture wise. My boys love SOS!

Okay so after rating a few days, this stuff has firmed up a bit more. Flavor is good, but definitely more along the lines of the hammy flavor you get from Pop's brine.

Next try will be a dry rub cure.

So another update. If I keep sampling this stuff it's not going to make it to the vac-packer. It's really good!

That's my bet too Tom. The last bacon I did was dry rub. Which is what I did for years until my scale broke. Now that I have a new scale I'm back into the dry rub cure again.

Pop's brine is great but just not as good as going dry.

I agree pops is great but my wife cannot tolerate the sodium from a wet cure, she however can eat the dry with TQ , adapted from Bears

When I have used Pop's brine I always used 1/3 cup salt. I really prefer dry curing, but with cure #1. So glad Ifinally replaced my scale. Not even sure why I waited so long to do it! Now I have two!
