"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


It's an Excalibur.

The only thing about jerky is that I need to stock up on more dental floss.

Fish jerky doesn't sound very good to me either.

It seems like you could make jerky in a smoker, but I don't know for sure. I think it can be made in an oven too, but haven't ever tried it. Hanging it on toothpicks from the oven racks sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, for me at least. I can just picture myself bumping the rack just the right way and all of it falling down.

On YouTube there is a video of a big dehydrator that a guy made himself. It stands out in his yard.

Well -
This is interesting!!!
I'm the "idiot", "genius", "fool" - that started this thread -
even I was smart enough to leave well enough, alone!

But - no!
Someone brought it back from the dead!
(Don't blame me!!)
Hey kids - didn't nobody tell you that saying -
"Let sleeping dogs lie"?!?

Deer jerky - excellent!!
The best jerky I've had was "Boar"!!
Wild pig!!
I've never seen a wild pig - friends of mine have.
Carry some type of weapon - they tell me - they're very nasty!!

Ross, it's a rare occasion when I'm wise enough to 'leave well enough alone'. I had to go all the way to page 3 to find this thread.

I haven't tried boar jerky either. But I have heard that wild boar's are mean and nasty - and dangerous if they happen upon kids playing out in their yard. Wild boars will eat humans. They have a big problem with them in Texas. Here's a link to a video of a guy in a helicopter hunting them.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RciAG...eature=related

Did your friend say what cut of meat from the boar that he/she uses for jerky? I'm just wondering if I could buy the same (similar) cut from a butcher at a grocery store.

I've been buying bottom round steak on sale for $3.49 lb. - a dollar cheaper than hamburger - to make jerky with.

Rossi, you know we couldn't stay away too long, we have to come home and visit sometimes. Thanks Barb, I will check out that youtube video on the dehydrator. I wonder if you can make sweet potato jerky, that would be a new one we could market it under the name poot root jerky. Man, that wasn't nice was it, sorry.

Just about anywhere down around the coast of Southern Georgia and Fla, you can find way more wild hogs than you want to. They are tearing the peoples yards up down there. When they catch the hogs they will put them up and feed them grain and clear water for a while, it makes the meat way better. If you were to kill a boar and especially if you made him mad before you killed him, the meat wouldn't be fit for a dog to eat.

No these guys live on an actual farm. You can't tell from the picture, but these are the hugest pigs ever. They look like calfs. You should've seen the damage they did to their area.

The one that lives near me came outside once or twice this summer. I just don't see him around that often. Very bizarre.

No, they didn't tell me what cut of the pig they used.
As far as going to a butcher -
They might have access to a source of of "game" meat.
However - it's one thing to go out hunting and kill something for
personal consumption -
It's another thing to do that for sale to the public - USDA!

One thing that a couple of them told me was -
they'd go out hunting them (no helicopter - "feets" on the ground)
Some type of high-powered weapon - they also carried a side-arm -
I think it was something like a 357 magnum - backup.
They told me dem, dare, little piggies are very fast! - VERY nasty!

As, far as "jerky" goes - another one is Bison.
No - we're not out on the Great Plains, slaughtering them!
Farm raised!

The only thing I hunt for, anymore - my keys!!

(Good to see you creeper!)
