    I got tired of not having a work table when I was grilling.  I always had two grills side by side so I could use the other one for a table. I like the weber grill that has the work table but it is $349!  I built this for about 40 bucks.

    anyone ever make jerky out of breakfast sausage?

    I have twenty pounds of sausage from a hog we had butchered.  My family isn't much on eating sausage now that I have learned to make bacon.  I just mixed up a batch of bottom round and ground beef to marinade over night and I was thinking of trying to throw a pound of sausage in the dehydrator...

    Mold growning on my jerky, what am i doing wrong?!

    When I make jerky strips with ground beef I get mold growing three or four weeks later.  I use lem seasoning and cure(pink),93/7 ground sirloin,  dry in a lem dehydrator and store in food saver bags.  What the heck am I doing wrong?

    First Q-View; Ribs on new Pellet Grill

    Nice ribs, and awesome grill! I have the GMG also.  Love it, but watch your temps, mine runs about 12-15 degrees hotter than the controller shows.

    Tender Quick has me confused!

    Would sliced jerky meat fall under whole cuts or ground meat?

    Tender Quick has me confused!

    The bag says 1 tablespoon per pound of meat.  People say 1 1/2 tsp per 5lbs of meat. My last batch was pretty salty, is the 1 1/2 tsp per 5lbs correct?

    I was thinking of trying brown sugar, maybe equal parts TQ and brown sugar?

    Anyone soak jerky meat in water like bacon before smoking???

    Just got to thinking about if my jerky is going to turn out too salty from the Tender Quick in my wet marinade. When I do bacon, I soak it for an hour or so then remove it and put it in the fridge to dry before smoking. Do you do that with jerky too?

    anyone try using sausage spices when making bacon?

    I recently had a wild hog butchered.  I told them to save the belly instead of grinding it up as sausage.  When I was prepping the bellies with cure and stuff, I thought Id sprinkle some sausage seasoning on one slab to see what it would taste like.  Anyone try it before?

    Bad turn out!

     Hmmm... the jerky with my homemade marinade with tender quick turned out completely different than the backwoods seasoning. It was thicker, and didn't stick to the grate. Meat came out of the same package, smoked at the same temp for the exact amount of time.  I wont be using the backwoods for...

    Bad turn out!

    Went to the grocery store to get some jerky meat.  I picked out a nice top round and gave it to the butcher to slice up.  He told me that all the jerky people use bottom rounds instead of top.  Bottom dont look as lean to me, but he is the meat man so I let him slice me up some about  an 1/8". ...
