Hi Mountain Whiskey Pepper

Discussion in 'Making Jerky' started by nitrousinfected, Dec 22, 2009.

  1. Saw this in the sporting goods section at Walmart, and was intriqued by the sound of that , so picked it up and grabbed a small 1.5 lb roast. Carefully weighed and measured all ingredients, meat marinated alittle longer than directions stated, due to the fact that I had to work yesterday. So it marinated about 36 to 38 hours. Put it on a rack and in the oven at 170 ( low as oven would go) propped door open, and let it go til it was about the dryness I prefer. I am not displeased with the results, but there is definitely room for fine tuning. The salt flavor is alil more than I prefer, and the whiskey ( crown royal ) flavor didnt really come through at all, and there was less pepper flavor than I'd like. Any one have any suggestions?

    Crown, while tasty in a mix or by itself, isnt the best choice for flavor in food. Id go with Jack Daniels or Wellers Special reserve.

    Possible add a little sugar to offset the salt and add pepper.

    As a side note, the next time you make or the wife makes Meringue for a pie, substitute the vanilla extract with Jack Daniels.

    You had me going on this one.. you can always tweak it till it's where you like it. Good luck and happy holidays to you and your family.
     
  4. I mix CR with Milk to soak deer steaks in all the time, then into the breading pile and onto the hot grease, they come out awesome. However I beleive this particular recipe would most definitely benefit from the charred oak essence of JD, May have to try that next.

    I think I would use a sweet jerky recipe and then I would soak it in the jack probably 24 hrs also need to cure it probably about 1/4 to 1/3 cup would do 2 pds plus
