Getting some biltong and chilli bites ready for the mix.

Biltong. Just sprinkle the sea salt lightly on the meat as the biltong mix has salt in it.

I mix the vinegar, worcy and liquid smoke together then add the dry to this.

Make sure all sides of the strips are coated. This will fridge for 2-3 hours before drying.

That's gonna start smelling good pretty quick . Neat idea .
I need 2 more hanging dowels.
Use the 2 outside dowels as support , then put the ones that hold the meat cross ways . That way it would be easy to adjust the number you need at the time . When its done , just grab the whole row and take it out .

Looks very good. i need to get off my lazy bum and make some biltong again.

Do you have a biltong mix recipe you can share? Where did you buy your chilli bite spices from?

Been waiting for this post to follow your new dryer post! In for the ride. Is biltong a bit more tender than jerky?

Biltong is more dense than jerky. Normally sliced real thin.

The biltong mix i got when we were in Germany, however both you can get on amazon now from crown national.

Thanks for the information. I ordered 1kg of the biltong spice and will try it out. Maybe I will do a side by side comparison with the biltong spice I make.
