Product Description

Strips of meaty jerky make great snacks for day hikes, canoe trips, or around the camp fire--even at home on a Sunday watching the game. This complete kit provides the tools needed for making great-tasting jerky at home in about four hours. Save money over store bought jerky and make it the way you like it. The large jerky gun features a stainless-steel trigger, a ratchet bar, and a see-through meat chamber that can hold over a pound of ground meat, spend more time making jerky and less time filling cylinder. This will yield approximately a half pound of jerky after dehydration. Choose from three attachments to create jerky strips, sticks, or double strips. Includes eight jerky spice and cure packs; 2 each of Original, Hot & Spicy, Teriyaki and Cracked Peper & Garlic Flavors are also included. Use with Nesco American Harvest dehydrator to have jerky in about 4 hours

am a casual user of the food dehydrator, mainly for beef jerky. I had always used thin cut steak and marinated it for a day or two and then dehydrated. Well, I received a Nesco dehydrator for christmas which had jerky spice packets included with it. Reviewing how these packets worked, i saw that it called for ground meat, a new concept for me. Well, I broke down and got this item and mixed up a small batch, and I am never going back to the steak. It took a while for me to perfect which flavors to use, but this is as close to store bought jerky you can get. My best batch is 3lbs of 96%lean ground beef, one Hot & SPicy pack, One teryaki pack, and One original pack...with one 4 oz bottle of Hickory Liquid smoke...and presto...Store bought beef jerky. I have a Nesco dehydrator (see my other review nesco fd-60), and 3 lbs ground beef fill all the trays with the flat jerky strips. Lowrey's beware. And it's quick to make this, no marinating or cutting up beef, just buy the meat, mix the spices in, and into the gun it goes, and little formed strips of beef come out the gun. It's just like a caulk gun. I make the flat strips, but this kit comes with the capability to make beef sticks as well, which are awesome as well. Try this jerky fans, you will not be disappointed

I had to replace this after the first one broke after about a year of use (about 10 times used). I would still rate this product with four stars, because it is a good product, and since it comes with 8 spice packets, it's not that bad of a value, the gun worked out to being $10 or less.

A few things I think everyone should know when making jerky and using this gun:

If you leave the ground beef out for at least an hour out of the fridge, it will help immensely with mixing the spices with it. I usually make sure I smash the spices in the packet before I open it and sprinkle it into the ground beef mixture. This will also make it easier to get the meat soft enough so that it is easy to get into the gun and shoot out.

If you prefer less salt, don't use all of the salt cure packets when making the jerky, I usually skip one packet.

I have the nesco dehydrator and I bought two extra shelves, so I have seven shelves, which when I buy 5 pounds of ground beef and use the gun with it, fits perfectly.

Don't skimp on the quality of the ground beef- it works fine with 12% fat but anything with higher fat, and the meat will be too stringy and not hold shape when using this gun.

DO NOT PACK THE MEAT IN REALLY FULL/TIGHTLY IN THE GUN. This will cause stress on the plastic casing, and this is how mine broke. It is better to just fill it 50% or 75% full, not firmly/tightly packed, just loose, and this seems to work fine. The meat will compress as you shoot the gun and you'll still get good slices.

I like to use the 2 rectangle shape. I cannot vouch for the other shapes since I only use this one.

Good luck and I hope this info is helpful to you!!!!! You can save a lot of money by making your own jerky, and it keeps well. Oh- also, the jerky gets saltier as it ages, so if you're sensitive to that much saltiness, consume quickly or make less so you can consume it before it gets too salty.

If you a fan of Beef Jerky and are getting a little annoyed by those little bags that containe hardly anything but a big price than this is an option you might want to check out. This gun uses ground beef, and Jerky Seasoning packets to make very tender beef jerky. You can also use other meats as well! I find this gun very easy to use and fill compaired to the much smaller model, I was feeling that thing at least seven times for two pouns of jerky. The platic is of good quality, and again just like my dehydrator it is by NESCO and name you would expect nothing but the best from! The price on Amazon cannot be beat either.... I seen it everywhere else for $39 and up!

This gun can save you a ton of money too. For me to make 2 lbs of Jerky it cost me only $6.60 you can spend that much on six little beef sticks that don't even weight up to 2 lbs. IF YOU LIKE JERKY AND HAVE A DEHYDRATOR TRY THIS PRODUCT.

I'm not a cook. Never been interested in cooking, just eating until we started following the Paleo / Primal lifestyle. You need SOME snacks you can just grab and eat and jerky is a great primal snack. After we made the first batch and it was eaten, my wife was busy and had not made any more jerky. I decided to try it myself with about 30 seconds of instructions from her has she went out the door. My batch turned out great and I feel so empowered. I know, it's not really cooking, but humor me. We like the Teriyaki flavored mix the best.

As far as the 'gun', it works great for ground beef. That batch I made was 3-lb of ground beef and I filled the reservior twice so it will hold about a pound and a half. The three pound batch will fill up a Nesco FD-75PR Dehydrator which we also got from Amazon. You can be eating jerky in about 6.5 hrs. We had one small problem with the first unit we received. During the first batch of jerky the plastic piston cracked near the ram. Amazon made it easy and painless to get a replacement.

Quality item, quality service.

This Jerky Kit helps make consistent jerky in a fraction of the time it normally takes. I used to roll out ground meat, cut it into strips, and load it in the dehydrator. This was very messy and yielded strips of different thicknesses. The Gun is easy to use and clean. The pressure is even and easy to control. I even made my own insert that I used to make Spaetzle with. Nesco's spices are really tasty. Instead of the 1 pound of ground meat they suggest, I use about a pound and a half for a slightly milder taste.
