After a bit of a letdown trying to make my own jerky recipes I backed up to using commercially available seasoning packs. My favorite to date had been the Backwoods brand Original flavor. I picked up some hickory flavor, mixed up a batch, and loaded my cannon!
I have been using a Number 30 Disher for the last few jerky runs. The recipes haven’t always been the best, but loading and shooting the jerky has gone super smoothly. The hickory isn’t my favorite flavor, but the batch did turn out well. For now I am back in the jerky saddle, but not as gung-ho as I was before. I am going to focus on testing different seasoning packs and fine tuning my drying technique for better consistency.
