Looking good so far! Thank you for your son's service to our country!

I know nothing about the reveo or how it's used. Shouldn't the meat be refrigerated while being marinated?

YW

Reveo is a vacuum tumbler machine. The air is evacuated which opens the meat fiber and allows the marinade to completely enter the meat. It tumbles from 5-20 mins. 20 mins being = to 12 hours in the fridge. After tumbling, drain the meat, toss the marinade and either smoke or dehydrate. Since this going over seas i did add cure and when done i will spray with PS. Potassium Sorbate. Wrap in freezer paper and then vac seal.

Thanks! 20min.= 12hrs.... can't get much better than that! I'll have to look into maybe owning one myself.
 
Rick - looks great so far. You do such a great job to support our troops, very admirable

Will be watching this for additional updates/pics!
 
They will appreciate it.

It is the least we can do for them.

You are the man here.  They are the Men and Women over there!

May God Bless and protect them all.

Good luck and good smoking.
 
Thanks everyone.

My son is the one in front with the knee pads on.

Photo time after some trigger time. I know all the mortar crew here and they all been thru 4 deployments together. When i send goodies over to them i blow hot air popcorn in the box for packing, They like it.

Veery good.  We all loved the care packages from state side...

Wow what a great photo! Sending things from home to the guys and gals serving in the military is the least we can do! When married and on Active Duty, my home was always open to those serving that had no family close! It was great!

Many, many thanks to all of the men and women serving!
 
Great job as usual Rick. Thanks for all you and your son do

Can you please explain the process of using the PS. I am too looking to make a batch to send to AFG to a buddy of mine. I want to make sure that he gets a solid product when it gets there.
 
Potassium Sorbate is the potassium salt of sorbic acid, an organic acid that has been used extensively as a fungistatic agent for foods. Potassium Sorbate is used to inhibit molds, yeasts, and fungi in many foods, such as jerky, cheese, wine, and baked goods. I mix 1 tsp to a spray bottle of water, dissolve and lightly spray the finished jerky on both sides. Let dry the wrap in freezer paper then vac seal. Wrapping in freezer paper stops any pointy jerky ends from putting a hole in the vac bag.

See the RPG nets on the vehicle behind them?  I work for the company that makes them, they're Q-Nets from QinetiQ North America.  I'm a development engineer for light and medium tactical vehicle armor.  As someone who once wore the uniform, I take great pride in doing what I can to protect them now.
