Unfortunately, there are editing and perhaps formatting issues with the book, for example: Dixie Jerky says to add more TOBACCO and cayenne for real men and women...well I enjoy my smoked jerky but I don't want to actually PUFF the stuff just to prove I'm a real man! There also seem to be cooking instructions left out of at least 19 recipes such as Seven Steps Jerky, which has 8 ingredients listed but no instructions for the seven steps. Some prefaces to a number of recipes say, "the following are for..." and then give ingredient lists but never give any dehydrating or smoking instructions at all. Confusing, confusing, confusing!!!
The author needs to categorize her recipes by cooking type; i.e. smoked, oven dried, dehydrated, dried in a hot car etc.; she could then give blanket instructions for any number of ingredient lists.
You will most likely find some jerky recipes in here which you will enjoy, but the author needs to revamp this book so that it is more user friendly and understandable. I like the index with its point-and-click feature; it makes looking at a recipe you are thinking about using much more handy. All told, this one could use some real work, but if corrected, it could be a winner.
I found this book careless and dangerous and very poorly written. I wonder the integrity of the recipes. I want to know what award(s) the Blue Ribbon Beef Jerky actually won and I want to be able to VERIFY the winning recipe belonging to the author. I've been searching for it online but come up with nothing except a lot of scam information on Mabel White and Debra Dolen.
I purchased two books on Amazon both written by Mary Bell. The first is "Just Jerky" and the second is "Mary Bell's Complete Dehydrator Cookbook". Both books are absolutely AMAZING and I would recommend them to anybody.
I hope this helps some of you who are looking for a good jerky book. If anything bad should come of this purchase, I will post a follow up about it.
'Beef and Other Meat Jerky Recipes' by Deborah Dolen is a solid collection of more than 50 jerky recipes. Pretty well organized, this book provides all the essential information for making your very own jerky without much hassle.
The recipes cover different types of meat, such as beef, venison, wild game, it even has a recipe for vegetable roll-up made out of tomato paste. While I was not surprised to learn that there are many methods to make jerky, such as a dehydrator, smoker, solar, and oven, I was most definitely inspired to put my oven to a good use after reading the introduction. Author mentions that most recipes from the book can be done by any of these methods, though she seems to prefer dehydrator and oven.
I'll start with the EZ style Jerky. If that works out, I'll try the Herb Jerky recipe - looks pretty simple as well.
I am collecting my recipe and cookbooks on my Kindle, as some might know. I do feel that this book could have used some pictures - I am a guy, so I like it when stuff is explained to me with the use of imagery, preferably of the kind that makes me hungry and inspires me to go and cook something. On the plus side, it has a clickable table of contents. For those who are new to having their recipes on Kindle, this is a must for all good cookbooks in digital format.
The Author writes in quirky, almost snappy, yet entertaining manner - I had a good chuckle about her mailman Joe's index for hot pepper usage. All in all, this is a solid entry in a overcrowded market of recipe books.
