The Gift of Curing Meats

Give a man beef jerky, and he'll eat cured meats for a day. 
Give a man a dehydrator and a jerky gun, and he'll eat cured meats until his joints scream with gout.

Within this dehydrator are two trays of classic beef jerky, and two trays of teriyaki chicken jerky. I'm working on my own recipes to try to reduce the amount of salt used. Since I'm actually curing the meat, I don't think my jerky requires as much salt as is traditionally used.

Good lord do I love jerky.

Thanks for the xmas present Mom and Dad!

I love this poem: Auspex.

It reads like the 300 year old translation of a  2,000 year old classic, but in trying to research it, I'm pretty sure it's not. I think Brian Kubarycz wrote it, but it's presented as if it's just another found bit. If anyone knows more about it, let me know.

Anyway, I love it.
