Have you purchased beef jerky lately?
It's about $18 a pound here!
It's easy and cost effective to make your own!
You can get the gun and 5 packets of flavor for about $20.
This will do 5 pounds of meat.
And you will need extra lean ground beef...I know, right?
No expensive cuts of meat, you can use lean ground meat that costs around $3.50 a pound!
I got a 10 pound log of meat at WinCo.
Add one packet of cure and flavoring and mix well!
It's basically like a caulking gun...with different attachments for strips or tubes.
You can get a dehydrator with the gun for pretty reasonable price...
then you can dry all sorts of things!
Perfectly cooked, yet tender beef strips!
I vacuum pack mine with an oxygen absorber for long term storage.
favorite flavors are:
Cracked Pepper and Garlic
