Jonathon Thanks! I have been marinating my meat for at least 24 hours. This week I will try both vacuum tumbling and using glycerine so kinda want to ensure the experiments goes well! I guess I will try making vacuum tumbling period longer but will not make it marinade for 24 hours after vacuum tumbling it! I will post some pictures over the weekend though! Excited
Jerky Blaster Trick
Well not so much of a trick, its just my way of getting that last bit of meat out of the nozzle when using my Cabela’s Jerky Blaster (FYI best gun I’ve used) Anyway once your down to your last 1/2 tube of meat, open the tube from the opposite side of the nozzle, take 2 slices of bread and roll them up, put those in the open end of your tube, re assemble the gun and finish the job. At the end it helps clean out the tube and only leaves you with that tiny bit of meat, flatten it out and add to your rack. Hope it helps out.
Gary T I had to upvote this post because that’s genius! I wonder how dense the bread becomes and if I could use this on a stuffer to get the rest out my snack stick or summer sausage out of the tube, that always annoys me. I don’t so much mind what’s in the bottom of the cannister as I make a patty out of it but whats in the tube always goes to waste.
Thank you for the tip!
I do this with my grinder to get the last little bit of meat out, I’ve seen it work with the stuffer also but you need to use 4 slices of bread.
Jonathon Hey Jonathan thanks! That little plug is hard as a rock when it comes out lol, I’m sure the bread would work for your aplication as well, also the dog loves it.
