    what is MSG?
    and what kind of barbecue seasoning?

    Thanks for the questions, Dan.

    MSG is an additive to food products used as flavoring and as a preservative. More information about jerky related terms can be found on the Jerky Glossary page at Jerky.com. It is useful as a reference guide when talking jerky talk. 🙂

    You can use any ‘barbecue seasoning’ that you want. It doesn’t require a specific brand name at all. In fact, you can substitute this for any of your favorite seasonings. My advice on these recipes is they should be used mostly as a guide. I recommend changing a few of the quantities and recommended seasonings to things that more suit your tastes. Feel free to experiment a little…and check the meat regularly to get the desired texture and moistness. After a few batches you’ll know exactly what to do and what not to do. When you get that perfect recipe…come back and submit it to us. Share it with everyone else!
