    Am I supposed to cook the meat before marinating and dehydrating? Can jerky be made with pork?

  2. by JerkyRecipes


    Marinate and prepare the meat prior to dehydrating it. Please refer to our dehydration page to learn more. Yes, pork can be made into jerky, however the process is a little more difficult because not as much moisture is removed as there is in any other meat product. Check out some bacon jerky at jerky.com and see for yourself…it’s delicious by the way.

    Do we cook the turkey prior to marinating it? Or do we use raw turkey meat?

  4. by Dave

    You use raw turkey. The meat will slow cook after done marinating.

    What in the heck is “mesquite flavored liquid”?
    How is it different from “Liquid Smoke”

  6. by randy

    I used Montreal steak seasoning (a dry spice) instead of liquid mesquite. I used this recipe to make the beef jerky and will soon try it out for turkey jerky.
