This is a great product designed to make your ground beef jerky making process easier.

What I like:

The gun itself is very helpful in forming strips and sticks of jerky. The different nozzles allow me to make my jerky into whatever shape I like. The gun is easy to use and quite precise. All you have to do is load it with seasoned ground beef and squeeze it out. You can control the length of the jerky. It even makes a pleasant clicking sound as you watch your neat strips/sticks of jerky come out from the other end. I would not know how to form ground beef otherwise. Your hand WILL get tired after a while, but that is why we have two hands =)

I LOVE the seasoning & cure packets that came with it. They were delicious, and make your jerky taste exactly like store bought stuff. They give you a good amount, too. Enough to make 5-10 pounds of jerky depending on your taste. After finishing them I decided to mix my own cure & seasoning by buying salt cure and liquid smoke, etc. but so far I haven't been able to come up with a consistently tasty seasoning for my jerky. If you want consistent great tasting jerky, I highly recommend ordering more of these packets individually.

However, this jerky gun, as convenient as it is, does have a major, major, MARJOR problem...

Major problem:

The VITAL piece that pushes out the jerky is made of PLASTIC!!!! Oh lord, what are they thinking?! I am talking about the piece that connects to the end of the core metal stick. It is made of a thin piece of plastic! I understand that it needs to come off so it can be cleaned, but can't they make it metal too? My jerky gun is lying in the bottom storage drawer of my oven right now, because that one little piece of plastic cracked after making jerky 9-10 times.

If you or someone you know loves beef jerky and you also love to save money on this wonderful treat - then look no further because this is the extruder you want. Simply purchase ground sirloin with a 3% to 5% fat content, mix in the included two seasoning packets for each pound of beef you use, shove the meat into the extruder, pull the triger and BAM you've just made your jerky strips. I use the superb Nesco dehydrador and in five hours I have turned four pounds of sirloin into many, many strips of excellent beef jerky. Get this kit and make the jerky you love quickly and conveniently. Highly recommended. Enjoy.

This fun gadget is essentially a meat caulking gun. I bought it with my square Nesco dehydrator, in order to create Slim-Jim-style beef sticks. While it is not the sturdiest device I have ever seen, it is easy to use, and worth the relatively small price, if only for the novelty of creating sticks and slabs of ground beef jerky.

A few points:

-- Ground beef jerky is not actually traditional beef jerky. "Real" jerky is thin strips of steak, marinated (I do mine for 36+ hours), and then dried. This device creates tubes and slabs from ground beef or other meats.

-- This type of jerky is faster to create than the "real" stuff. You simply add seasonings (Nesco's packets and/or your own additions) to the meat, stuff it in the gun, extrude it onto the trays, and fire up the dehydrator. 4-5 hours later, you have jerky!

-- It is helpful to allow the beef to come near room temperature before extrusion. This just makes it easier to squeeze the stuff out of the gun. Also, make sure you use 93/7% hamburger (or even leaner if you can). It's healthier, dries faster, and "sweats" less while drying.

-- Food safety is even more critical with ground beef than with lengthily-marinated solid beef strips. Ground meat tends to contain more bacteria, so all your mixing utensils, bowls, the dehydrator trays, and the gun parts themselves should be thoroughly washed with a mild bleach and dish soap solution and very hot water JUST PRIOR TO USE. This will help prevent any chance of food-borne illness, and extend the life of the finished product. I also wash my hands repeatedly, and use disposable latex examination gloves when handling the meat.

I don't normally complain if I can repair a problem, which I probably can with this one. But-I won't spend half the value of this jerky shooter to ship it back for repair. I'll try some JB Weldish type stuff instead. That being said, let's get to the problem. This is a neat gadget, but it has a design flaw where the ratchet mechanism meets the plunger disk. Mine is cracked almost through after one use. I could see that this might not be a problem if you were trying to dehydrate some chocolate pudding, but anything similar to ground meat being pushed through this meat caulk gun is going to crack the parts at the joint I described. I don't know if there are any other available jerky shooters, but I will definately research that. It is an inexpensive item, but, it should be able to supply more than one usage. Use at your own risk-maybe do a glue up with the JB Weld before using to prevent frustration.
