"Best strip jerky?"

Howdy All,

I'm looking for some opinions. I LOVE Springville Meats for processing my big game animals. Their burger, brats and breakfast sausage are perfect! Steaks are wrapped to order.

However, I'm not a big fan of their jerky.

Is there a Utah butcher that you guys/gals recommend for thinly sliced strip jerky (non-ground up)? And one that ensures you get your actual meat back? ;)
I'm not a big fan of the "everyone's game meat batched together" style.

Thanks for any/all suggestions.

Jon

I would recommend getting a meat slicer and a dehydrator or you can just use your oven. It is very simple and easy to make. Way better than anything you can buy in a store. I've been doing batches of jerky for the last few weeks here at home and will probably have close to 100 pounds when I'm done.

I do both muscle meat jerky with a meat slicer and the ground meat through a jerky shooter. I like doing both types because it gives more options. The kids love helping out and they definitely help eat it. The dehydrator did get banished to the garage last week because the wife got tired of the house smelling like jerky.

Thompsons smokehouse in Erda sounds like just what you're looking for and is the best I have found. Give them a try. I also prefer strip jerky over ground up. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Freeze the meat for about 3 hours or until ice crystals have formed in the meat. Use a sharp knife and sliver it down.

Mix in a bag with 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 9-10 squirts of Worcestershire sauce and red pepper flakes to huge spicy level you think you would like. Stick it in the oven on cookie sheets with the door cracked at 250. Flip it a couple of times as it dries out.

You can send $50 for saving you the money at the meat cutters. 😉

Mechams meats in Magna makes fantastic jerky. And he is very reasonably priced and super honest. You will get your meat back and it is clean. He's the only meat cutter I use anymore. He doesn't take game on Sundays.

I have been making jerky on my Traeger bbq. I have used the recipe in the cook book that comes with the grill as well as my own terriaki versions. They have all turned out great. It takes about 5 hours with the grill set on smoke.
