Not Jerky but ....Biltong
« on: January 23, 2014, 11:52:11 am »
Decided to do another batch of Biltong, the first batch I used a traditional recipe with ground toasted coriander and black pepper and used malt vinegar to dip, This recipe I'm  using a mix of toasted coriander , black pepper , little Cure#1, little bicarbonate of soda, brown sugar, and a little bit of Zatarain's big n zesty original, using Balsamic vinegar to dip this time

Don't know why images are so big, photobucket says they are 320x240, thought there was a small, medium and large button someplace, Never had them post so big


Cut meat a little thicker this time about 3/4'


Salted with coarse sea salt for 30 minutes then scraped off


Spice Mixture


Dipped and Dredged, going in fridge for a few hours before hanging to dry, Going to dry in Cabala's dehydrator

Stay tuned......

Looks good Tony
What temp do you run the dehydrator? Do you ever give it a little smoke and then to the dehydrator? I am going to keep watching this one.

I'm running temp at 50* but indicator is showing around 70* so I'm guessing that's around room temp, never tried smoke, here are a few recipes you can check outhttp://www.biltongbeli.com/biltong_recipes.htm

Tony
Try right clicking your pictures on your computer and choose Microsoft office to open them. The choose edit pictures and then go to compress picture on the right side and choose document. OK and then save. Now load them on to photo bucket. You should like the size better.

I'm loading right from the Photobucket mobile app, thought there was a way to specify what size your photo will be when uploading but Photobucket mobile has been upgraded a few times, that's probably my answer right there, never had a problem before upgrades
