    jerky ... dried meat ... meat candy call it what you want :)

    i have tried this a few times .. and it works out well because i have had 4-5lb batches disappear in 2-4 days

    i got set up by my pop-in-law with nesco/american harvest jerky spice kits ... my fav seems to be the pepper garlic spice set ...

    there is 3 ways i like to prepare this ...
    first: is dry spice in burger .. mixed well and use a jerky shooter

    second: roast or backstrap slice 3/4" thick soaked in a wet soak (12-24 hours)
    (on the packages 1/4 cup water per lb of meat e.g. 8lbs .. 8 spice packs and cure salt 2 cups of water)

    third: ... same and the wet soak but instead of water i use jack daniels or makers mark
    (i am curious about trying it with spiced rum.. but i am currently out of spices to make jerky)
    this was just an idea i tried one day ... turned out well .. in some cases i think to well ..
    i know buying spice kits is just a cheaters way of cooking ,, but it works :)

    Bourbon Street...meat candy...

    If you've been there, "meat candy" holds an entirely different meaning! Especially during Decadence Fest!!! :eek:

    have not been there ... although i like to make candies and cakes i do not eat sweets, chew gum or drink soda ...
    so i call my jerky "meat candy" for lack of a better pun :)
