Jerky from ground venison
« on: February 14, 2015, 02:44:23 PM »
I start out with 10 pounds of ground venison, thawed and placed in a large tub.



I have been using Hi Mountain seasoning lately, using the recommended amount of the flavoring and about half the amount of cure listed in their instructions.



Next I will add lemon juice (this helps to tenderize the meat, Worcestershire sauce, some of my "toxic waste" blend of peppers and some Tabasco Sauce.   



Mix it all well.



Now I assemble the Jerky Cannon, which will hold about 2 pounds of jerky. 



I normally will use the double strip end to lay out the jerky in the dehydrator.



Once the jerky is laid out, I give it a sprinkle with Louisiana Cajun Seasoning and start it up. It will take about 3-4 hours for each batch to dry down. 





They dehydrator starts with about 4 pounds of meat and will dry down to about 2 pounds of finished jerky.

To bring witness to the day we all die

sounds like hot jerky

I get yelled at if I make it too hot, Kim, so I usually get the first batch in the dehydrator, then add a bit more seasoning to the next.

It is fun to make, Muddy. Enjoyable to eat as well

Thanks, Razor.

I may act civilized, but that's just it, an act. Scratch the surface, you find a predator, harm those under my protection, it will be better to face your worst nightmare.
