    Ok here we go. At work we have a comercial vacum marinator/tumbler.
    It will handle up to 50 pounds of meat at a time,and does a fine job of mixin'up jerky.

    I started with 10 lbs of eye of round roast sliced with the grain(no other cut is as good for jerky)

    Basic hi mountain jerky hickory seasoning sprinkled between each layer in the bottom of the drum.

    Some Sweet baby rays BBQ sauce to give it a little sweetness.[​IMG]

    Then the top on and vacumed to -20lbs pressure,close the valve and onto

    the rollers. Tumbled at fullspeed for 20mins.[​IMG]

    Into the smoker @150* for 6 hours.

    More later when it comes out!

    Man thats a nice set up at work. It might be hard to leave work sometimes. I bet you can make some good bacon and sausage you know things that a butcher would make. What happen to the saying that a builders house is always needing repair. You mite be giving butchers a bad name. [​IMG]

    Looking and sounding good. Can't wait to see the final picts.

    Question about your smoker set-up. Is the keg the firebox? And if so, what's the line coming off the propane tank into the smokebox for?

    You guys hiring? LOL

    I saw everyone calling you SOB and I had to go back to the top to see what the name was again. I first they were cussing you because you get to smoke at work. LOL

    Did you consider you would be called a SOB all the time? LOL

    Dude... Well the keg is a smoke box. It originally had the burner from my old GOSM that heated a castiron griddle filled with hickory sawdust. I switched to a electric hotplate with a small pizza pan that holds wood chunks, when the burner blew out trying to cold smoke some cheese and almost blew myself up![​IMG] A little too close! I've been toying with making a small charcoal basket to fit in the keg and trying to fuel it like a UDS.
    Always lookin for ways to improve on my designs! All tips and sugestions would be reviewed by the board!

    These dogs are nuts![​IMG]
