Guest Post from Man: Making Jerky Convo on Facebook...

This has been a long running conversation with some other homesteading folks on a Facebook Community Board.  I pulled off the names and such and changed them to initials for some privacy (R.P, H.A., and B.M)  As you may figure out, my icon is the combine. B.M's son and father delivered firewood to us last week.

Making ground jerky again today. Man that stuff goes fast. Looks like I need another feeder calf to grow out. Today's flavors are: Hot & Spicy, Onion Garlic Hickory blend, and Original flavor. Our city friends love it as much as we do. Still need some venison (anyone?) and should have more fresh rabbit to jerk next week
    •  Saw two road kill does on I-71 between here and town. If I had a pickup, I'd have brought them over for you.

    •  Gee thanks... Not doing roadkill anymore

    •  My kids got me this poster one year for my birthday: 

  •  Just finished up with Hot & Spicy. You know it's good when it makes your hands tingle from handling it... haha! Sure smells good in here.

  • RP- I busted a gut about 5 times reading the menu closer. Funny, yes, but definitely bad taste

  • How 'bout this slogan for BBQ: "If you can choke it we can smoke it"

  •  H.A. - Cabela's has jerky spice mix for game which is probably better than what I use for beef. If you want to pick some up I can make some venison jerky for you.

  • Yes, I did rabbit jerky. It turned out super tough so it needs to be mixed with, say, chicken or beef or?

  • Cracked Pepper & Garlic Jerky is almost done and will get vacuum sealed in 2 strip packages this morning then straight into the freezer. I haven't done much of this flavor (once, I think) but it's really good too. The dryer gets cleaned up for apples and bananas later today. Then, back to jerky (venison & chicken hopefully) on Monday. My meat grinder has a jerky/sausage attachment I may have to try since I've only used the jerky gun.

  • Amazing when I think about it... Beef raised on the premises, Cow & calf together 'till butchering time and all the memories in between. And did I mention? Very Tasty! That's 3 lbs of meat to make 1.1 lbs of jerky. Now, on to making dried apple slices.

  •  B.M. - I'll give the guys 3 packs. One each of Pepper & Garlic, Original, and Hot & Spicy with a stern warning they have to share!
