    I was recently devastated to find out that the little truck stop near Homestead, Florida that used to have my favorite brand of beef jerky (Taylor Country Farms...Sweet and Hot) is now under new (foriegn) ownership and no longer carries said jerky. It's been years since I've been anywhere near Homestead, but I asked my brother to stop by on a recent sales trip to the Miami area. Upon further internet research, it appears as though Taylor Country Farms has been bought out by Jack Links, makers of a much inferior product. Does this mean my beloved jerky is no more? I call upon you, fellow ck5 brothers and jerky conneseurs, help me find a replacement. Help me weed through the mass produced crap to find the good stuff. The kind with nail holes in it. And a place to buy it on the internet :D.

    buy a dehydrator and make it yourself.

    recipe as follows:

    1 12 oz beer of your choice (no light beer wussy stuff)
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1-2 cups soy sauce (salty as you like)
    spice to taste. i prefer some crushed red pepper, chili powder, light garlic, onion powder, and some kind of chipotle sauce.

    marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour, dehydrate and enjoy.

    o ya the furnace filters and box fan sound real good idea..... needs to be heated to keep out bacteria, same goes with the addition of salt or equal to the maranaide. maybe if ya had it heated and maintained at i believe 175 degrees, it would work.... i made a smoker/dehydrator outa a old fridge, more racks, a fan and heat source...

    Round these parts the best jerky is usually sold at the gun shows. There is usually three of four companies selling really good stuff. But, it is pricey....

    id like to add my guarantee to the people i work with and to my friends (i brought 10lbs to the M715 meet and greet in LBL kentucky) is if you try it, and dont like it, ill buy it back. no one, not one person, has ever done that. matter of fact they all call it "crack" jerky at work

    real jerky is not heated:haha: . add heat and all your doing is cooking. jerky is a product that is naturally dried and the salt is used as a preservative, never use zip lock bags to store real jerky.
