    Please put all jerkey related stuff here:
    I have never seen a jerkey thread and we all love great jerkey.
    No one likes that processed junk that is at most places, and we can be having any of that.
    This thread is for more of the home made jerkey variety's that is so good you can't put it down.

    This past weekend I found a place that makes and sells some of the best jerkey you will ever find.
    I'll put a link below:
    They do ship all over the world to. I just received an order of buffalo jerkey that I ordered a few days ago. OH MY GOD!!!! There buffalo jerkey is so good I can't hardly stand it.
    Its called Woody's Smokehouse and is in Centerville Texas. They have exotic jerkey as well.

    I found another place many years ago that makes some good home style jerkey as well.
    It's called Ainsworth Meat Market and there located in Magnolia Texas. They also sell exoctic meats but I don't know if they ship though.

    Please post up your favorite places to get great home made style jerkey. Thanks and enjoy!

    So many jerky recipes start the same:
    Soy sauce
    Worchestershire sauce
    Brown sugar
    Morton's tender quick
    Pepper red/black/cayenne
    Onion powder
    Garlic powder.

    I like a little kick so I lean heavy on pepper(s)

    If you've got blood pressure issues you'd better stear clear 'cause tender quick has "all the salts"

    I use the oven on low to dehydrate. Door cracked open and meat layed out on parchment paper spread over the oven racks. Not bulk processing , not fast but a cheap and easy solution not requiring another kitchen gadget.

    There are some low temp smokes that could take jerky to a whole new level.

    I have made my own before on my bbq pit but it takes a long time and I have to monitor it quite frequently to dry it without cooking it.I don't know why but I have found the cheapest cuts make the best jerkey. Maybe I'm just not that good at it.
    I love the peppered jerkeys but the pepper doesn't like me. I'll belch pepper all day if it's to heavy on the pepper. I also like it low on the salt but then I have to freeze it or it won't last as long.
    The best jerkey I have ever tried was in a sampler pack and it had bear jerkey included. Man that bear jerkey is some good stuff.
    My next order, I'm gonna try the elk and deer jerkey. The buffalo jerkey is some really good stuff as well. Way better then beef.
    I found a place years ago in Whitehall Tx that makes real good jerkey but they only open during deer season.
    Buc eez has a lot of jerkey but there not as good as some others I have tried. I can't eat that mass produced stuff you find at most places.

    If you are looking for a more authentic type beef jerky (not soy based) the following is very good but it is wicked hot.


    2lbs eye round

    1.5 T kosher salt

    1.5t garlic power

    1.5t onion powered

    ¼ cup finely chopped chipotle pepper in adobo


    Cut beef 1/8” think. Combine with above and refrigerate for 24hours. Dry and store. I use an Excalibur set on 90f for about 16 hours.

    Has anyone try it with a charcoal bbq ? I would like to do that for years and never tried it. I guess we need to put only a few charcoal to keep temp low and smoking chips on top of that and wait a couple of hours ?

    You could probably get it done in a BBQ grill with a smoking tube filled with pellets. It would not generate too much heat but you would need to replenish the pellets after several hours. If it was me, I would smoke it outside for a couple of hours and finish in your oven set on warm with the door open a crack or just follow T-bird cooking instructions.

    Mom used to make the best deer jerky, but dad doesn’t hunt anymore. Haven’t tasted it for many years now.

    I may have to order some from Texas. Family reunion coming up and it might be worth a shot.

    Just checked out Woodys. Bloody hell that’s expensive! Sampler pack of 2 pounds worth of jerky is $100!!

    I’m in the wrong business.

    That's insane. I have never tasted anything I would pay $50 a pound for.

    Cooked shelled lobster meat bills out at close $50 bills. Now I am not the biggest fan of the sea cockroach but sometimes I do like a lobster roll. It’s been a while since I had one. Mmmmm….sea cockroach.

    Well, if she only weighed 100 lbs, at 50 bucks a pound, that's 5 grand. Miss her that much?

    My wife weighs about that much. Heck, I'd pay a whole lot more than that for her! Add a couple more zeros and I'd still take her. :D:heart::rock::bowdown::clap::yes::heart:

    16oz soy sauce (low sodium if you like) 16 oz Dale's Steak Seasoning, 32oz water, one bottle (4 oz) mesquite liquid smoke. Simple and smack your granny good.

    When I was visiting down in Nashville in March my buddy turned me onto Dale's. Brought some home with me but haven't looked around yet to see if they sell it around here. It's very good on goat.
