Thanks again Case & here's his thread I followed !
So, was planning on some beef, pork & tried to think of something else to try ! Well... had some beef, the pork we must have used & I forgot, but we recently were fortunate enough to have 40 lbs of chicken breasts given to us... I've never tried chicken breast for jerky, but figured we'd give it a shot !
So got everything mixed up & in the fridge overnight !
Yesterday afternoon, fired up the MES ! This is bout hour & a half in, was firing up the AMNPS with pitmaster blend dust to start the smoke !
So, yesterday while trying to smoke this had a power outage ! Haven't had a power outage for a while, but trying to do some jerky & it goes out right in the middle of this smoke ! What's the odds huh ? Anyway, not complaining I just found it interesting ! LOL Temp fell from 150* to 86* but all was good ! I think the AMNPS helped keep the temp from totally falling ! Just fired the MES back up after the outage & we were in business again ! On a side note, I need a generator !
So, here's what we ended up with...
The beef, great taste... I like the red pepper flake batch the best ! Not that the regular isn't good, it's great... I just prefer a bit more spicy ! Both batches are real tasty !
The chicken breast, I was real curious how this was gonna turn out ! This stuff is great, it seriously turned out real tasty !
We will be doing this jerky again for sure, very tasty stuff ! Somethin I'd never have thought to try but glad we did !
Thanks for lookin all !
