I want to try jerky using my 008. I read that Stogie's Jerky Page and QDogg Jerky 101 are very good places to start but I keep getting broken links. I've tried the other forums as well. Anybody have any info?
The best way to get started making jerky is to get some Hi-Mountain jerky kits. they include the cure and seasonings and instruction sheet. You can also get a handy dandy cutting board with jigs and ultra-thin-bladed jerky knife set on their website. Real nice folks. We have a few stores here and there round these parts that carry the seasoning and cure kits, but if you cant find them, they have a nice website. Order plenty for the best shipping deal.
BAH! KITS! Get some cure in bulk. Experiment. I just did a marinade/cure. Soy sauce,worcester sauce , Sunny D, dark brown sugar, sesame oil,tabasco,black pepper, salt,cure,ground ginger,paprika,chili powder,celery seed,and fresh garlic. 24 hours in fridge and then smoke w/mesquite charcoal and hickory chips. Pull out of marinade and pat dry and then shake in a bag of cracked pepper. YUM! Jamey
BTW, Here's a trick learned by accident. Some of the jerky cut thinner and on the lower racks of the smoke were WAY jerk-i-fied. As they were hot, I put them all into a gallon ziplock intentionally to see if condensation could even out the moisture a bit. It did. Not only did it save the ones that were going to be way to dry, but it left a LAYER of marinade on the outside that is wonderful. Kind of like how one would glaze ribs. Very good. Jamey
