Default Jerky Making

ok didnt know where to put this since there isnt a food section lol. But im attempting to make Jerky for the first time with my dehydrator. the book it comes with only has recipes for there brand of jerky seasoning and it keeps talkin about cure. Thought salt was what most people use to make jerky and cure meat. any insite on this?

anyway i wanted to see if anyone had any good recipes for jerky. tryin some black pepper and sea salt and some teriyaki and some of the jerky seasoning that it came with. anyone else have some that they really like?

Buy some jerky kits. They come with cure which is not regular table salt. Are you grinding and using a jerky shooter or slicing thin?

Jerky kits can be had at Cabela's, Gander Mtn and most major sporting goods stores that compete with thee above. Also, go to Meat Grinder | Meat Processing Supplies | Jerky and Sausage Making | LEM Products and order a catalog or just order from them. Easy peasy.

Curing Agents: Smoking Meat, Making Sausage, Making Cheese, Making Jerky, Brewing Beer, Canning, Dehydrating

make sure there is absolutely no fat. trim it really really well as fat turns rancid when jerking meat. its a taste you wont forget.

Ummm.......can I be the taste tester? I used to make my own beef jerky by thinly slicing very lean meat and drying it in the oven. Teriyaki is my favorite. I just don't do it anymore as it took me much longer to make it than to eat it.
