Extruded from my water stuffer a friend made for me.

This 5 lb mix was supposed to be with the SS mini chub batch but i decided to give the new jerky nozzle a go. Was telling my friend who made the stuffer and tubes that maybe the jerky nozzle needs to be just a tad thinner. The jerky took awhile in the dehydrator because it was kinda thick. However it did turn out nice.

Like flat casingless SS sticks.....OH YEAH

Lookin' Good!

I'm really interested in the process

I just bought a Jerky Cannon, and it only holds 2#.  I have a 20# sausage stuffer w/electric motor that I would like to use instead.

Did you use Parchment Paper?

Dehydrate or Smoke or Oven Dry?

Transfer to racks?...How?  Freeze First?

Little more info on the process....Please?

Did you buy one of the jerky ends for your stuffer? I have seen a few different stuffer's that have attachments that will make a thin flat piece of jerky so you don't have to use a jerky gun. I am trying to find one for my Gander Mountain 15lb vertical stuffer.

You can use parchment to extrude on.

This batch i used my dehydrator cuz all my smokers were busy with other smokes.

I turned the was paper strips right onto the dehydrator racks.

An Amish friend showed me to put finished jerky in a brown paper bag for a couple days. The bag removes and surface oils. Once out of the bag you can vac seal and freeze. Dont zip lock baggy because you will get moisture and that will lead to spoilage. On a note about vac sealing. Cut the ends of the jerky off so you dont have any sharp edges poking the vac bags.

I shipped 50 lbs of jerky to my 2 sons in Iraq and Afgn vac bagged with no problems. Frozen vac sealed jerky will last about 4-6 months.....if you can stay out of it ...LOL

Also has you checked the sausagemaker for flat GB jerky nozzles for your stuffer?

Man you are like a man posesed with that new stuffer - great looking snacks
 
Looks great. Have been thinking of making sausage but don't have the needed equipment yet so this looks like the way to go for now. I can get a gun fairly cheap and just use a SS recipe. I've had great success making jerky out of London Broil in the dehydrator but really want some 'snausage'. Thanks for the post...what temp did you use in the dehydrator??
