I have all the equipment to make my own jerky and I used to make it because it was better than anything I had found in stores. But, I finally found jerky as good or better than I could make so I quit making my own. For the price and quality of the jerky I found, I can't afford all the time and effort to make my own.

I love beef jerky too. Actually, I don't remember meeting anyone who doesn't like it. If you don't live in USA, I can fully understand you wanting to make your own. I used to make mine. But a friend of mine recently told me about a place on line that has been making it for 30 years. They just started selling it on line. He told me he had tried it loved it. So I ordered some. I got it last week and boy was he right. I liked it so well, I ordered a case of it. Guess what my friends are getting for Christmas (;) By the way, they only ship to addresses in the USA.

We tried several recipes when we started making beef jerky, but we ended up just using the stuff you buy at the grocery store. It tastes great and is very easy to use. I can't remember the name, but it's the stuff in the little gray boxes that come to a ridge across the top.

Thanks for response. When I got my dehydrator set for xmas, I got the seasonings came with it. I used one of them and they are good! I love it. My hubby loves the way I season the beef so I dont use the packages anymore. But I must say, they are easy and quick!

What method do u use to make your own jerky? I am curious because I watch a lot of food tv. The guy who does Good Eats says that food dehydrators are bad because they rely on heat to dry the meat and cook it rather than drying it out. He had a method that I can't use - putting the meat on heater filts and tying them to a box fan. Since I have cats, I don't think the meat would last long unless I placed it outside.

Thanks for the response. I just use the recipe my friend gave it to me. I use garlic powder, onion powder, chili poweer and soy sauce. After I mix it together I water it down. I didnt know that food dehydrators are bad. I use them to make my beef jerky. I love mine, it easy to use.

Howdy! I like the teryaki quite well. If you like it a bit sweeter, mix in about 1/2 to 2/3 of the liquid from a small (tuna-sized) can of pineapple. It won't significantly change the drying time and adds a nice sweet touch to the teryaki!

Oh man, I don't have a recipe but I remember when I was little my dad would always go hunting, get a deer and we'd have venison jerky. It was so wonderful!!! I need to see if dad went deer hunting this year and beg him to make me some. I do know that he marinaded it in teriyaki seasoning, salt, coarse pepper and garlic.

Howdy!I use a food dehydrator and ground meat. One must have a "jerky press" (available from American Harvester) to use this method. Take 2 pounds ground beef (9% or LESS fat content) and one pound ground turkey. Add one package dry teryaki mix, about four ounces of finely minced pineapple, two tablespoons garlic powder and one tablespoon "curing" salt. Mix all together until VERY well mixed. Using the jerky press, load the dehydrator shelves and process for about twelve hours. Pat the dried product well with paper towels to remove the beads of fat (grease) which have formed on the jerky strips, bag in plastic storage bags and refrigerate. YUM!
