    A man has to have something to snack on before, during and after fishing.......right?


    I've been hearing some good perch reports from Lake Erie [​IMG]



    So, here we go...... 20lbs eye of round




    I was planing on doing these yesterday but didn't work out that way


    Here they are a bit too frozen, but the slicer didn't seem to care





    Two 10lbs batches cut into strips, against the grain









    Have to run out to the store to pick up a few items for the marinate 


    Hopefully tomorrow they'll be in my dehydrator....

    The waiting game begins.... tick-tock tick-tock...

    Hot Pepper above Teriyaki


    Hopefully they'll be done around 11:30ish

    Four hours in...

    Had to rotate all racks 180° because pieces towards the back were drying a little faster for some reason. This batch is different from others I've done in the past.... 20lbs instead of 10lbs, sliced a little thicker and the humidity is higher. I also need to check if there's a difference in drying from top to bottom. Not sure if my guesstimate of being finished around 11:30ish will hold up. Either way, it's all good!

    Thanks DeeDee! 

    Nothing to it really, if one has the right equipment. I was fortunate enough to gather what I needed. Good luck!

    Thanks smoke slinger! If you and the family enjoy eating jerky, it's well worth the effort IMO. However, there is one small problem..... it seems like you can never make enough. Half of what I just made is gone already. I guess next time I'll have to make 40lbs [​IMG]  Good luck!

    Finished off the last few pieces of jerky yesterday. My buddy and I didn't even have an opportunity to go fishing yet....lol. I guess I'll need to make some more and scale back a little with the generosity. I do enjoy making it and sharing it, but, at this rate I'll have to go find a part time job! [​IMG]
