Labor Day Jerky

Postby Swamp Donkeyz BBQ » Tue Sep 04, 2018 1:18 pm

Smoked up some beef jerky yesterday. Two flavors, one was sweet and spicy (kind of an Asian influenced flavor) and the other was done with a mixture of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, etc. Marinated for about a day and a half, then into the smoker for about 4 hours at an average temp of 150. Ended up being around 5.5 pounds of jerky in all. Turned out great!

I can indeed relate and that's why I got the Jerky Shooter - - - aka Jerky Grease Gun
Ground meat of any kind plus the smoke of choice - - - I prefer my Dehydrator and lots of coarse ground pepper :cheers:

Good looking Jerky there. :salut: I usually cold smoke my jerky, so I'm waiting for the cooler temperatures outside.

Hey OUP, That gun works great, I have one too and makes for good slim Jim style snack sticks.

The jerky looks like what others have said. Great!

Not to hijack the post but anybody want to educate me on the jerky shooter and how you make slim Jim’s with it??

Simple -- - you pull the ratcheted drive shaft back and load it up with meat of choice - - - then you put whatever tip you want at the end and then you squeeze the pistol grip which pushes the shaft forward forcing the meat thru the tip and into either a flat shape or long rounded ones - - - - breaking off desired lengths as the come out - - - I then put them on my dehydrator trays but I imagine you'd need some foil if you were gonna do them in a grill/smoker/pit with grates.

It operates just like an old style grease gun :tup:

Here's a video showing the way I do mine but sticks would require the other rounded tip - - - there's also a youtube on that one.

Great looking jerky, SD! I need a bigger smoker so I can make batches that size. My measly 1.5 - 2lbs never lasts. Lol!
