      Let's talk about beef jerky. What's the best kind? How do you make your own?

      My favorite are the Kirkland Beef strips from Costco. They are moist, taste great, no bad chemicals in them and a good price.
      VW's from my past.

      I really like Wild Bill's but it's really salty and I'm not sure how healthy it is relative to other beef jerky, but it's really good tasting.

      Things things are the bomb.

      Just remember to refrigerate them. I didn't refrigerate mine the first time I got them and after a few days they were covered in mold. They've since changed the packaging to reflect what I'm assuming has happened to a lot of people.

      That happened to me the first time I got them. After three days there was mold everywhere and I didn't buy anymore.

      But the best is home made. A friend of my uncle is a butcher and makes his own. Man do I wish I could get some of that.

      Outside eye round roast cut between 1/4" and 1/8".

      Soaked in a mix of LIGHT Soy sauce + Liquid smoke (Hickory or Mesquite) I prefer Hickory, + water to cut it a bit for 24 for first batch.

      Gotta get mix in between the slices as it sticks together, I also usually mix meat every 3 to 5 hours for atleast 24 before putting it my $250 dehydrator Jesus that's half the cost of some stoves haha.

      Set it about 135 and done in 4-5 hours. 5 racks and the internal fan make every single piece done at the same time.

      Too bad I just had my first kidney stone and with 2 more teensy teensy ones in each kidney I'm probably not supposed to make it anymore.

      Oh wow, I didn't know they had Kirkland brand jerky. I'll have to look into that this weekend.
