TMI Tuesday.....






Mr. Knowitall isn't showing up tonight in the flesh.
He's afraid that The G-Man will slice him up and
make Jerky out of him!
After a tough day on The Lube and Oil rack, it's swell
to come home to some DELICIOUS Homemade Beef Jerky.
Drying for 16 hours it turned out PERFECT!!!
Speaking of jerky.....
The indigenous Native American's in South America spoke
a universal language called Quechua. In that language
the word CHARQUI was used to describe meat that was burned!
It was the first way that meat was preserved for long
periods of time. The word Charqui evolved into Jerky!
Mr. Knowitall is very nervous hanging around here...
See You Tomorrow!

Mmmm... jerky. Ever try marinating it in soy sauce and crushed up dry jalapeƱos? So good. Crap. I'm too lazy to make that. *sigh*

My wife's father and I used to make ours like you except that end part we'd hang it in a cool room in his basement where it would air dry for a month or so. Gooood Eating.

I'm not sure my teeth would stand that - but I'd give it a try.

Next you can try making pork or chicken - or my favorite, turkey!

(Besides, it's fun to say "Turkey jerky"!)

Come to think of it, Indian cooking is quite similar to American. We also make that kind of jerky in India! The only exception is, that it is fried before eating!

Ok G, I know that you worked very hard on your jerky. I applaud anyone who goes to the effort to make anything from scratch. But...

I have to say that I was away over the weekend and missed your previous posts, so not realizing that you were making a meaty delicacy, was a little, uh
dare I say
umm, hesitant at the vision you presented. I completely mean no disrespect, but I thought I was looking at some kind of bugs or worms, or some other indistinguishable things. And then to see your son eating it, made me

err wince?

I had to go read the previous post, see the pre-photos & then recognized your concoction. Good times!

I hope your charqui is divine!

I want some! Yours looks really good. I tried to make some deer jerky one time. It was, well, not good - I'll leave it at that :-/
