Well...

11 hours it took. Unfortuantly the pieces we many different sizes (couldn't be helped) so some were more and some we less. All in all the flavor was nice. The deer flavor came through, lightly salted with a lovely hickory flavor.

We sampled a couple pieces and I kept a couple more but the bulk went out the door.

26oz of meat to start and about 11oz of jerky.

I would make this one again.

Hold up... By out the door did your dogs have a lucky day? Or did the jerky meet Mr Disposal?

You can finish drying the thicker pieces in the oven.

Out the door means my friend that supplied the deer came by and I sent it with him for him and his son.

I hadn't planned on keeping much anyways, this was more a favor for him.

That was very nice of you to do.. Tomorrow you might be sorry you were so generous.. J/K.

They look fantastic!. My first batch didn't look that good. I had bits you wouldn't even have thought was supposed to be jerky.. It was sad.. You did a great job! :)

You took notes, right?

Munky.

Deer Jerky. My friend that hunts (you may remember him mentioned in the My Goose Is Cooking thread) gave me some deer meat to turn into jerky. This is a first attempt at this so we shall see what happens. Both of us are interested to see if the process will produce something edible. I used Morton Tender Quick last night for the cure and the strips are in the smoker now. The box has been settling in in the 145F range, though it does fluctuate (as a charcoal/wood chunk fire will). I do expect this to be an all day process. I ended up with about 26oz of deer strips. 3 stars 1 reviews
