I made some for the first time two weeks ago. Here's what i did.
Grind all the meat up, add the ingredients from a packaged jerky mix, then add some soy and worchester sauces. I'd say 2 tablespoons per pound of meat for each. Then add a in a tablespoon of what ever other spices you like, me i use crushed red pepper and garlic pepper. Mix it all together in a bowl. Next, i bought one of the jerky shooters from sportsmans warehouse, but walmart probably has them too.
Just fill it up shoot it out onto metal racks and put in the oven on 200 for about 2-3 hrs or until desired doneness. I do the same with venison also. And it turns out great. You can also mix in smoke flavoring if you'd like, but be careful, that stuff is strong. Good luck
May the skies above you; be blackened with birds
