Picked up this week at Academy Sports on clearance for $14, included the screen. Figured a good opportunity to give it a try to see if I like ground jerky.
So here is the experiment about 2 hours in on the pellet smoker. Used the "Sweet & Spicy" last night. Left on smoke (around 120) for about an hour and a half then went to 180. I had my grocery meat room grind a chuck tender roast, looked very lean and the butcher was nice enough to remove the silver skin before grinding. Only used 1 pound for this try.
I think it's close!
Well, It finally cooled and I tried it. I'll be watching for a deal on a higher quality gun! I would guess this is something I'll be doing regularly.
