Ran off a ten pound load today. Did not take long. The jerky maker was too hot to lay on hands. Had it all done in 7 hrs or thereabouts. Hot enough to cook briskets in there I think. The scammy butcher at Tom Thumb would not sell me the pretty Londom broils from his display case...but insisted to cut me some fresh fat and grisly looking freaks of nature. Swear I had way more waste than with an eye of round and prob less work to get it peeled. It's higher than 2.99 is the only thing.
