Anybody got a Jerky Shooter?

Postby jjohnson_714 » Sun Dec 08, 2013 6:41 pm

Does anybody up in the panhandle have a jerky setup I could borrow? I would like to try making some, but want to see if I like it before buying a shooter and some racks.

I had one but I am not a fan so gave it away. I don't like the ground up jerky as much as just strips of meat. The trick with them is to make sure your meat mix is moist so it comes out nice and smooth.

Yeah I have tried the strips, but I just never could make it taste good. I tried a guy's who made it with the shooter though and it was pretty amazing so I thought I'd give it a try. Plus I have been wanting a reason to use our KitchenAid grinder attachment

I have one. I will never make jerky strips again, I like the ground style best. If u get one. After u let the meat marinade over night. Let the meat get to room temp moisten your hands with water, roll the meat into round balls and drop into cylinder. Works great. We have the set up from hi mountain came with seasoning gun two nozzles and a wire rack.

JJ,
We have been considering buying one as well now that we have a good smoker. If you get a chance to try making it with a shooter, will you report on your findings? I Know a lot of people are experts already, I'm curious how a "newbie" makes out.

Thanks

Good thread. I have a jerky shooter and really don't like it but the wife does. She has weak teeth and can't do the regular jerky I make.
Using the smoker to dry the strips sounds like a fantastic idea.

I used to use a jerky shooter, but it is just a pain to clean up. Just mix the meat like you would for the shooter and then flatten with a rolling pin between two sheets of wax paper. You can then take a butter knife and just cut it into strips. The strips peel off the paper easy(if they are sticking just spray them with Pam really lightly). Helps if you keep a wet paper towel to keep wiping the knife off when you cut. This seems to be a lot faster and less messy than the shooter. You can use the same waxpaper multiple times too.
