I just wanted to share with you a little info about a jerky marinade product that I have used for a few years. Shaggy Dog’s ™ jerky marinade is made right here in Janesville, WI by Chris Cass.
What sets Shaggy Dog’s ™ marinade apart from other jerky seasonings is that it is pre mixed and ready to use.
Because it comes in a liquid form, the coverage and distribution all parts of the meat is excellent. Simply pour it on and mix the strips of meat by hand and refrigerate 24 hours.
After the meat is seasoned, use any brand of dehydrator to dry the strips to the desired moisture level. I built a dehydrator that will dry 50 pounds of jerky at one time. This batch is only 17 pounds. It took 6 screens like this.
I dehydrated this batch for 8 hours.
When finished. The 17 pounds was reduced to 7 pounds.
It was just short of filling a regular size paper grocery bag. The last step is to vacuum seal the jerky and freeze.
