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.
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.
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.

Worked great the first time. Will be starting my 2nd batch tomorrow. The extra wide jerky tip was pretty cool. Made a few large pieces, but mostly used the double tip. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
