I saw an idea in here from about a year ago about how it was cheaper to make beef jerky from hamburger but there were no directions. Can anyone help?

http://WWW.NESCO.COM - Jerky kit & spices - or

Head down to your local WalMart and in the department where they sell kitchen housewares look for the American Harvest Jerky Works Kit. They also sell the Original Flavor seasoning packs.

If you decide to try to make your own seasoning from scratch The aforementioned seasonings measure out at 1 Lb hamburger, 3-4 Tb seasoning, and 1 Tb cure.

The cure is a mix of salt and sodium nitrite. The nitrite is used for curing meat. If you cannot find it locally, go to http://WWW.MORTONSALT.COM. They also have a good recipe for pepperoni flavored hamburger jerky!

15 year old twin boys - I do 3 lbs of 90% lean hamburger jerky per week! It yields about 1.5 lbs of jerky. Three large cookie sheets with the jerky on cookie cooling racks, 170 degrees for about 6 - 7 hours and you have a pretty good product. I understand that the new dehydrators (with a fan and temp setting) work well.

Good luck!
