Dilly Jerky W/QVIEw

Discussion in 'Making Jerky' started by rygr, Dec 6, 2009.

  1. Hope I am not offending any hardcore jerky makers by making something a little different, but here is my latest smoke.

    I marinated the jerky in
    Whole Garlic cloves
    Whole Black Peppercorns
    Cayenne Pepper
    Fresh Dill
    Dill Weed

    Before putting the jerky in the smoker, I coated all the jerky with more fresh dill.

    The verdict is that the jerky is a little tart from the vinegar, but I still really love the taste. The combination definitely gives the jerky quite a different taste. I think I am going to try it again, but leave the vinegar out. The reason for leaving the vinegar out next time is that it hid a lot of the dill flavor that I was really trying for. I love dill so I think the more dill flavor that comes through, the better.

    Offending anyone, are you nuts? LOL. That's whats all about, making new things to try, putting a spin on the same ole thing, and that looks fantastic. I love vinegar and I love the taste of dill and I love jerky. Kinda like a meat pickle LOL. Great job of thinking outside the box, points for you my friend.[​IMG]

    Very interesting! Be sure to post your next batch with any changes too! [​IMG]from me too for being creative!
  6. Thanks for looking and for the kind words. I will let you all know how things taste without the vinegar.

    I will have to say too, I have never used vinegar as a meat tenderizer before, but it sure did a nice job. This was pretty tender jerky. It wasn't hard on the jaws at all.
