I hate to make yall jealous here..but was searching for some good meat deals in the grocery ads yesterdy morn..our ads come out on Weds..and stumbled over this crazy store Tom Thumb/Safeway who was offering select grade Top Sirloin for 2.99..yeppers went and snagged 20 lbs. Looked like great jerky fodder to the untrained eye. I was hoping to find top round for less than 4 bucks. That is enough for two batches in the current configuraton. 10-11 pounds is currently about my limit at one setting until rearranging the furniture in the jerky making machine.
