Got Jerky?

Postby Salt » Jun Sat 17, 2017 7:40 am

I sliced up about 12lbs of venison and marinated for 24 hours. Fired up the smoker and smoked at 180 for 5 hours. Finished it off on the dehydrator. Pretty dang good! I highly recommend Hi-Country Seasoning. I pick it up at Rural King.

I am afraid if I smoked my jerky for 5 hours it would be like shoe soul! I also prefer a lighter smoke with applewood. I have used the hi-country and like it too. I usually use a temp probe. Smoke on high heat until the jerky reaches 165, ( 20 to 30 min). Then lower the temp and dry to the consistency that I like. Should not break when bent and remain flexible. Watch for hot spots on smoker and throw it all in a sealed bag when done to equal out the moisture. Then Vac and seal Proportions for my trips. Its a great way to spend a day, good job and good eats.

This was the 2nd time I've actually used the smoker for jerky. Usually I just use the dehydrator. This time, I hand sliced the meat as opposed to using ground meat. I think that was a big difference in the final outcome. I also used applewood for smoke. I did not worry about meat temp because I used TenderCure in the marinade.

I've made a lot of jerky in my life. This turned out to be one of the best.

Just made some myself, practically the same way. I prefer the LEM Backwoods jerky mixes to the Hi-Mountain

I am a big fan of whole muscle cuts too, and I cut them thick. I usually go light on the smoke, since many of the cures already contain smoky flavors and its easy to over smoke.
