    Coming along nicely after almost 7 hours. The thin bits are getting very close, but the thick pieces still have a while to go.

    Sooo, are we going to see you as a vendor at all the gunshows? Jerky and gunshows are symbiotic, ya'know....

    mzmtg,
    Not picking at your process but I've made hundreds of pounds of jerky through the years and would like to offer a bit of advice. I noticed in the first picture that your meat still has some fat attached. While this wont hurt anything if you eat it fast, it will definately reduce the amount of time you can store it. If you remove all the fat, or better yet use venison so there is virtually no fat, you can store the jerky much longer than with fat in or on the meat.

    There is some brand at Bass Pro Shops nar the checkout that is excellent, but every homemade batch I have made is better.

    I try to trim most of the fat off. Longevity in storage isn't really an issue for us though. We usually end up eating it all right out of the dehydrator as soon as it's ready...

    :D

    I tried to bring some samples to my coworkers last Friday, but I got stuck in the traffic at the bus crash so I was forced to eat all the jerky...

    ..you know, 3 hours in a car with A/C and Sirius Satellite Radio is a survival situation...

    Jerky and Gatorade for $7? That sounds like North Fulton to me. :)
