Jerky?

Are you supposed to dehydrate raw meat or cook it first?

Raw meat is used when making jerky.

Except for poultry (Turkey, Chicken) which should be cooked first and then sliced very thin.

Do you use raw GROUND turkey for turkey jerky? That's the question. The OP wants to know if you should use raw meat or dehydrate it FIRST to make jerky.

I think you missed that part.

It's because raw chicken or poultry could contain salmonella and dehydrating temperatures won't kill it.

Like improper canning, you could go years without a problem, but all it takes is one time. That old game of Russian Roulette.

Raw Beef. You can cook beef for a Jerkey-Like product, but it will spoil in approx. 3 days.
