Maybe you could mark my calendar too, Jay. I'm not far enough away to justify missing it.

Re: Jerky Makers out there...

The MedicMan's Jerky....
Approx 5lbs of eye round roast. have the guys at the supermarket cut it lengthwise on a #2 slice. It'll take them about 5-10 minutes to do this, and won't cost you anymore. I then trim any excess fat off the meat and marinade it in:
1.5 cups water
12 tsp Lawry's seasoned salt (or 1/2 Lawrys and 1/2 "complete seasoning)
4 tsp garlic powder
4 tsp chili powder
4 tsp pepper
some cayenne
4 tsp liquid smoke
allow to marinde in fridge overnight.
place in dehydrator at 155 for 6 hours
vacuum seal in 2oz packs
Pretty Paleo
Pretty tasty, too.

Re: Jerky Makers out there...

I use London broil since I can get it for under $2.00/lb on sale.
I do it on the grill.

Here are some recipes to help get you started.

Re: Jerky Makers out there...

It's possible to make a box to make jerky, even out of cardboard.
http://www.biltongbox.com/biltong/
http://www.sa-austin.com/other.html

I was told that one way is to take a frame, put chicken wire in as drying racks, put window screen in as the sides to prevent bugs from entering, and cover the top with a clear plastic sheet. The sun comes down and dries up the jerky, all without the risk of burning your house down or increasing your electric bill.

Re: Jerky Makers out there...

Someday I'm planning to make jerky with the box-and-lightbulb method.

Jay, while your brisket is beyond divine I'm sure, jerky is good for the weeks when my mini-fridge is packed too full of veggies to fit any meat in there and I'm going from bed to desk and back again, and no, that's not nearly as sexy as it sounds when it's from work and not from play. Jerky is grab-and-go, and some weeks I need that.

Renee, if I were to make a marinade without soy sauce I would raid my spice cupboard for pretty much everything that might taste good together, dump it in a pan with a bunch of salt and a few splashes of maybe a balsamic vinegar (depending on the flavor I wanted; maybe apple cider vinegar, maybe rice vinegar) and some water and boil it for a few minutes. Sorry I don't have a recipe though....

You're wise beyond your years. You ever need a break from the herd of kids, you know where I live. Hi to Tim for me.

Re: Jerky Makers out there...

does that mean I can drop the kids off to eat your brisket? Hells yeah.

Wait. That means I don't get any brisket. I'm running away from home myself.
