    While shopping at my local thrift store a few months ago, I happened to find a brand new Cuisinart DHR-20 for about $20, still in box w/ factory seals on the power cord.

    Hawaiian Hamburger Jerky

    I don’t make a lot of ground meat jerky. It isn’t that it doesn’t taste great but it just doesn’t have the great chew of jerky from sliced meat. It is just softer and less chewy. However, I was asked how to make ground beef jerky and I haven’t made any for some time. So, here is how I make it...

    Another first: Ground beef jerky

    Tried 3 pounds of 80/20, couldn't find anything leaner around here. LEM jerky gun was pretty easy to use. Used the seasoning and cure kit that came with it. I did have to drop some grease off of it when done. Trays loaded, about 2 hours in, about 5 hours, then done at almost 7 hours. It didn't...

    Char Siu Pork Jerky

    I love Char Siu Pork. I love jerky. Why not put the two together? I had to give it a try. I started with a pork loin. You want to find the leanest piece of pork you can. Trim off any surface fat and slice the pork into ¼ inch (6 mm) thick slices. I like to do this when the pork is slightly...

    Spicy Lime Chili Jerky

    I love jerky. I also love spicy food but it doesn’t love me. The question was, could I make a spicy jerky that walked the tightrope between spicy and pain causing? This is my effort. The first consideration was what kind of spicy? Different spices, peppers and sauces give different kind of...

    Pit Boss - over-smoked jerkey?

    i have a PitBoss series 5. I made a batch of jerky using Bear’s method (long drying process with small increases in temp). However because even the lowest temp produces smoke it resulted in an over-smoked taste (but excellent texture). How do I reduce the smoke flavour? Do I just empty the...
