I have expanded metal racks in my smokehouse and I was looking to make jerky in it without a lot of additional work. I can lay the meat on the shelves but think they will stick a lot. I was hoping to hang them, but tooth picks and dropping it though wont work. I am not seeing any small hooks I can use and am looking for ideas.

It's late rifle season this weekend and the daughter and I are probably dropping one each and I got too much ground venison already need to jerk a lot of it.

You can try those LONG bamboo skewers.... Or,.... the way we smoke smelt....
Needle and thread... Strong thread and string a dozen or so... or use a meat needle and butchers twine.....
You'll figure something out....
I've seen some of the stuff you come up with... "that's a compliment"....

Here's a 2 pack of the MES 40" ones. U can probably pick up if you have a cabelas or basspro near u:


I've used with ground jerky and all kinds of stuff. They work well and can wash in the dishwasher :)
