wretched ratchet Not me, I'm suthern and I like jalapenos but the ghosts and habeneros are too much for my 'elderly' tummy. When I'm spicing up jerky, I prefer the black pepper and cayenne pepper taste, however, I do like to marinate my meat in Allegro Hot and Spicy marinade on occasions - - - - it goes all the way thru the meat and I like that. My grandkids like it also.

matts37chev i'm just wondering if any of you southern boys have any experience with the "ghost pepper" (naga jolokia) ?

for my "hot" i have been using habanero tabasco (3 teaspoons) instead reg. tabasco
and crushed red pepper flakes (3 rounded teaspoons)

so for this batch of "hot", I substituted 1 teaspoon of ghost pepper sauce for 1 teaspoon habanero tabasco
and 1 teaspoon habanero flakes for 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

still on the learning curve for the ghost pepper sauce and i'm a lttle nervous

wretched ratchet I was wondering about this thread the other day because I always try and make my grandkids some dehydrated jerky at Christmas time. Guess that means I need to find me a good cheap London Broil at the grocery store. However, I may end up doing it with my Jerky Shooter and ground beef.

Thanks for the bump, Cole.

matts37chev well its the "jerky making" time of year for me

i've been making about 1/3 of every batch very hot

in fact its gotten to the point that just for fun, i'm trying to make it so hot, you are afraid to eat it

but i haven't had much luck, its very hot but still very good

however, I think that's all about to change

I found some ghost pepper sauce

matts37chev One of the guys I work with just had his sons bear done
it was good also.

I just plugged in the dehydrator for the batch of steak sticks im making today
Can't wait till its done, every time is like a science experiment.

wretched ratchet It all sounds good to me - - - - I think the "best" that I have ever had or made was from fresh Venison and that's probably because it is a very lean meat which makes the best jerky IMHO. A beef cut called London Broil works well also, if you can't acquire any Venison.

tech69 also had macco shark jerky. It was ok.

gotta say, I've always loved jerky and am now looking at dehydrators because of this thread. Carna Asada jerky sounds good. I personally like terriyaki that's hot. yum!

i have found that when you make it yourself, its even better

you can choose the quality and cut of meat, and make it exactly how you want it to taste

i use flank steak most of the time and cut it thick, its easy to chew and taste great, i call it steak sticks instead of jerky

wretched ratchet Glad to see this pop up again - - - - oddly enuff the Wiffy and I were talking about dehydrator Jerky just yesterday and how much my Grandbabies love it. Guess I need to make a batch also, now that you've jarred my memory and appetite. Maybe, if I do, then the Grandkids will come see me again. LMAO

its that time of year again!!!!!!!!!!

had to drag this out, as I have the first batches of the winter (I know its only just now fall, as of today) in the fridge marinating right now!

2/3 of the batch is pretty hot and the other 1/3 is not so hot.(wife and kids cant handle a little heat )

its football season and I just all-ways seem to end up cooking while I watch the games on TV (the kitchen is quieter than the living room, the wife can really yell at the TV sometimes!) plus the Seahawks aren't doing much yet.

I have fine tuned that recipe some and now I have a bunch of guys that have tried it, wanting to pay me to make it!!!! I say sorry, too much work, but enjoy that one piece I gave ya.

matts37chev now that we have eaten almost all of the first batch, we have decided that it was almost a perfect recipe, and i did change it very little.

so here it is:

3lb- flank steak or beef brisket
1/2 cup- worcestershire sauce
1 cup- teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon- ground black pepper
1 teaspoon- garlic powder
1 teaspoon- onion powder
1 teaspoon- liquid smoke
3 teaspoons- org.tabasco pepper sauce
(you can also use chipotle, sweet and spicy, or habanero tabasco sauces)
3 teaspoons- crushed red peppers
3 teaspoons- brown sugar

wretched ratchet Well, Matt, it is obvious that you are hooked and addicted to the wonder world of dehydrator Jerky. Good Job for your first shot and BTW, there are no support groups for Jerky Junkies !
01-09-2011 04:21 PM
matts37chev DONE!
i got almost all 3+ lbs. in the dehydrator and 4 and 1/2 hrs later i got some jerky!

it taste great, sweet teryaki and a little spicy hot (not hot enough for me but everyone else says almost to hot-whimps)

i took the left over odds and ends that wouldnt fit in the machine and made a teryaki beef bowl for breakfast

i ended up with almost 1/2 of a 1 gallon zip-lock bag full

i will be doing this alot more - i love jerky, and it will be fun to try different recipes.
but this was a great first run, i think its going to be hard to improve on, by all that much!
