Morton Tender Quick Or half to one tsp pink curing salt2 1/2 tsp. mustard seed2 1/2 tsp. garlic salt2 1/2 tsp. coarse ground pepper2 1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes2 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder/Granulated2 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder/Granulated2 1/2 tsp. Crushed Fennel2 1/2 tsp. Crushed Anise2 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper2 Tbls. Paprika2 tsp. ClearLiquid Smoke1 tsp. hickory saltI mix all the ingredients together in a big bowl or dish, then make the beef sticks or jerky gun strips and get them ready to put on the smoker. You can use less meat, just adjust the rest of the ingredients accordingly. Mix well and refrigerate for 4-24 hours to help the meat bind together. Take the meat mixture out of the fridge and pack the mixture into the jerky gun making sure there are no air pockets. Shoot strips of jerky onto your smoker mesh grill racks and smoke it for 2-4 hours depending on your smoker.Can also be made in the oven, air fryer, or made into patties and cooked in a frying pan. Depending on how I am cooking it, sometimes I also add cheese and jalapenos. This makes the perfect amount of beef sticks or jerky strips that you can freeze most of it, and pull out enough for you and your family to eat over a two or three day period. I put the sticks that I keep ready to eat in the fridge, and my family munches on it for snacks. As your defrosted and ready to eat batch gets low, you just pull more out of the freezer. Good Stuff for snacking on around the house, or when camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting.Jerky Gun, Jerky Kit, and Jerky BoardJerky Snob - Beef Jerky Home DeliveryLOL Jerky - Beef Jerky Home DeliveryDisclosure: This post is brought to you by the Mendenhall Outdoors team.
