Pork Jerky

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Ok i made my ground venison jerky and the texture was perfect but the flavor was not . So was thinking of making ground pork jerky. Is it safe to make jerky from pork? I think I am going to try a differnt cure this time to.

I have used pork many times, I don't usually do ground meat though, I usually use whole boneless pork loin to make jerky.

Now I have done a fair amount of jerky but I have never heard of doing it with some pork. Heck I can't't see why you couldn't't use pork for jerky. Heck you could cure it so why not.

Any meat works fine for jerky.

 

Stick in the freezer until the meat gets like a frostee or icee.  You dont want it frozen, just ice crystals between the grain.

 

Cut meat thin against the grain, then add your favorite marinade.

 

Bambi jerky's awesome!

And if yo want your jerky a little on the chewy side cut with the grain.

I 've been makin pork tenderloin and yardbird jerky for years on the dehydrator. I'm still here. I make them on the UDS now. I get a little better smoke flavor that way.

I may be way off here,  isnt jerky dried, dehydrated without cooking?  If that is the case shouldnt you freeze the pork in a deep freezer for about a month to kill off any trichanae?

 You might be thinking about wild hog, If using fresh pork with a cure that's not necessary.
