Clucking Jerky

12 posts in this topic

My wife asks me the other day "I wonder how chicken breast would be for jerky?", I reply "No idea, let's try it!". These were some good sized chicken breasts!

So we ground up 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast for ground jerky in the Honey BBQ flavor... and then sliced up 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast for whole muscle jerky in the Sweet & Spicy flavor. Both the ground and the whole muscle chicken jerky got a combination of maple/hickory/cherry smoke while on the grill, indirect at 150º.

End results were that chicken sure makes for a lighter color jerky and the taste is all there, a little more chewy but for the price when chicken goes on sale would definitely make it again!

Thanks for looking!

looks great.  I wonder how the Jerky Judgers will accept using chicken breasts?  I know many are anti venny loin.  

You saved my afternoon I'm heading to freezer to grab some chicken.

I made it and at first when it was fresh off the smoker I thought it wasn't good but once it cooled it was good.  It kind of has a salmon type color to it.  I'd make it again, I just made up some sort of brine with worc, soy, sugar and srirachi.  I kept it on the moister side which I like anyway.  Good tip.

I think it is just that chicken is a lot easier to get than venison backstraps....   Go ahead, jerk it.  The farmers will make more. Heck boneless skinless chicken breast is cheaper than tough livery beef round.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
