    But how can it be "Beef" if it's Venison?

    In Pa alot of people have dried vension made and we always called it beef.  Maybe to make us feel richer.

    It's the same process as Dried Beef I do believe, so hence VDB or Venison Dried Beef ! :biggrin:

    The butcher shops in SE PA sell it as "Venison Dried Beef", not because it's Beef, but because of the Dried Beef process.

    If it's Elk, it would be Elk Dried Beef----Moose = Moose Dried Beef.

    When you make hot dogs----Are they really Dogs????

    How can you call them Dogs if they're really Beef or Pork???

    Is this going to be anything like deer jerky? I just made some killer deer jerky in the dehydrator this past weekend. Would love to try your "beef".

    Hey all, just getting back to this.... Had a 48 hr sickness hit me pretty hard & was out of commission.... So, the original plan was overnite (not a day & a half) in the fridge then in the oven on real low for a bit (don't have the likes of a MES, yet). So that's where I'am finally at this morning.... Here's the updated pics as of this morning .....

    Just before the fridge, seasoned with a little SPOG, one a little heavier on the BP as I like a little kick.....



    Out of the fridge this morning..... Just before low, low in the oven to dry a little more !
