What are your thoughts on beef jerky as a snack food. Also does anyone know how to get the tough chewiness that you find in the store bought kind if you are making it yourself. Go ahead and post your own recipes if you make it yourself. When I make mine again I'll post the recipe.
It's the bomb.
I prefer Jack Link's beef steak nuggets. Expensive, but SO good.

I can make it in absurd bulk amounts, hah, 8' meat drier. Yummy.
Risk, are you able to get it like the commercial jerky and if so how. BTW 8' that's nuts
I work in meat processing, I'm a shop/trade butcher at the moment. Small goods are great.
The Jerky/Billtong we were making isn't anything like the comercial stuff, we could never add sodium, 621, emulsifier or anything - to comply with council regulations, so we had dried beef essentially. Not to bad though.

How does one get low/no sodium beef jerky? Are there any brand that they sell in regular stores?
/me wants low sodium beef jerky?
Does anyone know if there are drying machines for homes? Mmmm organic beef rules!
The smallest meat drier I can think of that will do a quality job is over 3k.Originally Posted by russianwol
As far as low sodium, you won't be able to by any small goods with low sodium AT ALL. Just a fact of life sadly, so load up on water and flush it out.
I've got a Nesco dehydrator from Amazon for like $50....works great, and can do about 5lbs of wet meat per cycle.
I used to have that Ronco Dehydrator back in the day, I remember my father would "attempt" to make jerky, but it just never came out the way it should have.
Jack Link's Nuggets all the way! great snack.
Your run of the mill prototipical endomorph.
Strong to the finish, cause I eats me spinach!

Everytime I'm at teh walmart I get like 10 bags of the stuff (5 jerky / 5 nuggets) it's really cheap and really good. And there is no food more manly than jerky.
