The most primitive, and possibly most delicious method to preserving food... Biltong and Beef Jerky have been around for as long as mankinds been trying to preserve.

[quote] [B]Joey's Beef Jerky Recipe [/B][I][U]What you'll need[/U] [/I][B] Half Cup of Kikkoman Soy Sauce Two Teaspoons of Salt 1/6th a Cup of Banana Pepper Juice[Dice up some peppers into small pieces... It's good for you.] Splash of Lemon Juice[or any Citrus Fruit] 1/4th a Cup of Water Four Tsp. of Brown Sugar or Raw Sugar [/B] Marination Time: 10 Hours to 1 Day. Lay down some paper towels and begin taking out the strips of meat from the marination, and lay them down. Tenderize the juices into the meat, and then open up some blinds and put the meat near a window with respective sunlight. Allow the meat to sunbathe for about 15-20 minutes, and then proceed to put it into whatever drying method you are using. Note: The reason I'm saying to not pad-dry is because you'll end up getting pieces of fabric/lint inside your beef jerky, and nothing is worse then having actual leather in beef jerky. [/quote]
I make my Beef Jerky out of Deer its awesome with a cold beer :D
Nice! I've not had deer jerky since I was roughly eighty. Last time my dad/uncle went hunting together.
beef jerky is god's gift to mankind beef jerky made from scratch is something that you have to at least try once to see what it is like - it's unique and distinctive taste is nigh-unforgettable
I really like beef jerky and would love to make some but everyone else in the household is a pansy and will get angry if I try to make some. I would also like to try biltong, I've read about it before and it sound really nice. I think there's a South African community centre somewhere in my city.
I can't imagine why people would get aggravated over a snack, but you could always make a fake guise that it's an assignment on how humans preserved food.
i had ostrich jerky once, it was pretty good.

Like bbq on leather.
Kroger brand jerky isn't too bad.
hello i am in love with beef jerkey and for my life it has been my most enjoyable source of protein could any of you recommend a good dehydrator that isn't going to tear my wallet to shreds
Anyone know a good UK shipping website, id be willing to pay over the odds perhaps to import some of this from the USA.

I don't know the exact settings, as they can vary with the oven you use, but a bit of probing will yield the specifics.
[QUOTE=Boss;37965241]Anyone know a good UK shipping website, id be willing to pay over the odds perhaps to import some of this from the USA.[/QUOTE] Try Wild West Beef Jerky
[QUOTE=Kwigg;37971507]Try Wild West Beef Jerky[/QUOTE] Had a bag last night, £2 tesco :( Might try this stuff though. [url]http://biltongdirect.co.uk/biltong/original-msg-gluten-free-/multipack-5-x-150g-original-beef-biltong-msg-gluten-free-/prod_216.html[/url] 15 bags worth of 50g in that (i.e. the same size as the wild west brand) comes in a £7 cheaper. There is a 1kg version for £27 though im not sure how ill separably bag it. May get some air lock bags off amazon or something, May just make some, looks simple enough [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZiRrf2Zip4[/url]
Oh my god it finally arrived and it was glorious I got a 1 lb pack of original and 2 quarter pound of a different flavor were thrown in since it was late. [img]http://i50.tinypic.com/28mmq1w.png[/img] its like, really fucking good, this one wasn't salty but made up for it with a butteryness and and amazing sort texture. I'll post the original when I eat it [editline]12th October 2012[/editline] rives quality meats

Any love for this stuff? [IMG]http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-prn1/23295_123097457730751_7249_n.jpg[/IMG]
I love beef jerky but it's ridiculously expensive for me. [img]http://imgkk.com/i/rj3_.jpg[/img] A small packet can cost like $3-$3.50.
Same here, any brand name is always way too expensive. [img]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_im_PSagIRH4/SiMeAU0P4AI/AAAAAAAAAIE/wlOkQ3AtgiQ/s320/cajun.jpg[/img] THIS IS THE SHIT THO, its the cheapest around too!
I love the semi-soft jerky packets terayaki/smoked is amazing.
Worlds Kitchen jerky is pretty good most of the time [IMG]http://merchants-grocery.com/web/wp-content/uploads/13920.jpg[/IMG] [url]http://www.worldkitchens.net/[/url] [editline]16th October 2012[/editline] Also I get this shit for $10 at Kroger.
[img]http://lessmoney.com/shop/secure/images/products/161.png[/img] This and World Kitchen are without a doubt some of the most flavorful brand name beef jerkys I've had in my life.
