Ground Beef Jerky

Discussion in 'Making Jerky' started by Brian Trommater, Apr 25, 2019.

  1. I decided to put ground beef jerky and summer sausage on top of my to do list. So far new ventures of bacon and ham have gone well thanks to everyone's help! I have some old Hi Mountain seasonings that probably needs to go into the trash. I looked through jerky forum but seeing much on ground beef. Want to use MES but have a Nesco. Should I just go to Academy and pick up seasoning pack to start? Looks like set smoker about 160. Not sure how long? Have LEM gun coming Sat.

    Good Thai recipe on here, I think it was Dirtsailor2003.
    I like the High Country over High Mountain seasoning for store bought.

    I have made a lot of ground beef jerky. If you dry it right most people can't tell it's ground beef! I always use my MES with a jerky canon from Cabelas. If your just starting out you can get some decent jerky kits from Cabelas that work with ground meat.

    and into the smoker on matz.
