Pork Loin Jerky

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
