Pork Loin Jerky

12 posts in this topic

After seeing Eyeguy's pork jerky I had to give it a go and put this together Friday afternoon. I got a whole loin at Sams and sliced it 1/2" thick and put it in the marinade for a 2 day soak. 

Per 3 pounds

1 C Soy Sauce

1 TBS Worcestershire

1 TBS Onion Powder

1TBS Garlic Powder

1 TBS Fresh Ground Peppercorn

3 TBS Honey

I start drying the meat at 160 and smoke at 180. More Pics tomorrow.

Did you put it this stuff in a dehydrater and then smoke? How long for each?

Thanks guys! I use a Masterbuilt electric smoker. I start out at 160 degrees to dry the outside of the meat then bump up to 180 degrees and add the AMNPS with apple pellets. I have both bottom and top vents wide open to keep the pellets burning and let the moisture escape. There are hotspots so I move the pieces around occasionally as needed and pull pieces out as they finish. The honey caramelizes and gives the pieces nice color around the edges and flavor. In the past I used to use brown sugar.

Good point on the vents Grainbelt. I also keep the vent wide open on top and pull the chip tray half way out for more air using the AMAZE tube [or tray].  good luck.

When using the AMAZE tray, where do you put it?  Ive been putting it along side the heating unit on the bottom, fits about perfect, but have a hard time keeping a good smoke going.  Might need to pull tube out further.

The location of the tray is fine but it needs more air.  Pull the chip tray out a little more than half way.  good luck.

It's also important that the pellets are pretty dry to burn well. I like to use the pellet tray and I place mine in the smoker unlit at 160 for about the first hour while the meat surface is drying, this is to dry out the pellets. Putting them in a glass bowl in the nuker for about a minute will do the same.

Like RH1 said, plenty of air is important. I've been pulling my loading tube all the way out. I set my ANMPS on a canned chicken can under the empty water tray.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
