The package I received was different from that pictured. In the picture, it shows you get four metal attachment heads: single flat, double flat, single round, double round, as well as the funnel, pusher and brushes. The box I received had the bushes and pusher, the double flat and double round in metal, and one cheap plastic single round. It had NO single flat and NO funnel. They DID include a bottle of spices that the picture doesn't show. It seems they replaced the "single" metal attachments with one cheap plastic piece and a bottle of spices.
That was bad enough, but the release mechanism was lousy, too! It wouldn't release at all when the gun was assembled. I thought it was broken. Then I took it apart and the release button worked. So, each time I would want to load it, I would have to disassemble it, release the mechanism, reassemble, and THEN continue! The ends of the tube, where the screw end connects, is made of plastic and was very difficult to screw on. I had a very hard time putting it back together. And the trigger is very strange in design, and was awkward for me to use, as well.
All in all, I was very disappointed. It was not what I had ordered and quite inferior to the LEM jersey cannon that I already own. This was going to be my backup. I returned it.
I read a lot of reviews that said the double strip attachment didn't work well, but I decided to start my jerky journey with it anyway. That was really a mistake. I made two botched strips and then gave up and moved to the single strip attachment. After dehydrating my first batch, I decided to come back and give the double strip attachment another try. I'm glad I did because I prefer the jerky it creates to the single strip one and it makes the work twice as fast. Now, before you wonder what I'm smoking.....let me say that I think that the reason it didn't work the first time is because I didn't have a feel for the jerky gun at all and how to really use it effectively. That, added with the additional technique of using the double strip attachment was just too much at first. So, my advice.....learn to use the jerky gun FIRST and then come back and try the double attachment.
Single attachment is nice because you can fit strips into open spots when using a circular dehydrator. Jerkey is thinner than the double attachment, so it doesn't need as long to cook. Not sure why the two have varying thickness, but they sure do. The thin (single attachment) batch took 4-5 hours to finish.
The double attachment makes thicker jerky (it took me 7-8 hours to finish it). It does take some getting used to, especially the end of the strips, but once you get the hang of it, you're golden. Yes, as others have said, it doesn't seem to effectively separate the two strips, but once it's cooked, they either separate themselves or they're really easy to break apart. When using a circular dehydrator, making double strips can be a challenge and makes you think you're wasting space, but that really isn't the case. First of all, you can do alternating long and short strips to fill up the circle. Second, the jerky strips are thicker, so you're getting more per strip.
I haven't used the circle/snack stick attachments and don't plan on it as I don't want to do casings. I did find that the first time I tried to pull the plunger back to load the meat, it was pretty hard to do, but once you have the tub greased up a bit after your first batch, it's simple. The whole unit is super easy to clean and comes with brushes for the attachments and tube. As others have stated, there is a good amount of meat left in the attachment itself when it's done extruding the meat from the tube, but I find this minor in comparison to the many benefits of having something that I don't have to refill every few strips. I can make 2-2.5 of the round dehydrator trays with each fill of the tube. This jerky gun has mad my life a breeze and I will buy more if this one ever dies!
I emailed the manufacturer and they replaced the part that broke at no charge. It is now working again and is as good as new! They also told me how to replace the part and it was very easy to do. I hope the new part lasts longer than the old one.
