Just mixed up 6# of round roast and venison 50/50.  Making some jerky.
It is seasoned up and will marinate in the fridge till tomorrow.
We got a jerky gun and dehydrator for Xmas.

In my experience , watch it closely around the 4 hour mark. It can go from very good to very brittle quickly

Cool - thanks!

I was going to research this a bit before I turned on the dehydrator.

First batch of jerky is in the dehydrator.
It took about 4 of the 6 pounds I mixed up and marinated.
Donna and I got the hydrator and LEM jerky gun from my daughter Kelly for Xmas.
The LEM gun is really nice.
All metal and hold maybe 1-1.5# of ground in it so you aren't constantly loading it.
I researched them pretty good on line and everyone said to not get one of the smaller plastic ones.
They will only break.

Anyway, I have maybe 2# more after this batch.

I set a timer for 4 hrs to check it.

When it's finished it then needs to be finished in the oven at 275 for 10-12 minutes to kill any lingering bacteria.
I did use pickling salt so it will store fine.
But we will still toss it in the freezer in small bags and grab a bag when needed.
The freezer will insure no problems for us.

I'll let you know how it comes out.
The raw meat smelled pretty good.
Like the meat smokers I work on with work (the burners on them).

First batch is done.
4.5 hrs drying did ok.
Not bad.
Too much of something though.
2nd batch is in the dehydrator.
Be done and ready for the oven by about 10:30 or so.

Garlic powder

Too much garlic powder

Still good though.

Looking good everyone. Gettig ready to fire up the smoker again soon. The last 5-6 weeks have been too busy to do much.
I was given a new Masterbuilt smoker by a friend's son who won it but doesn't want to smoke anything. I just have to find time to go get it.
