I add 1 tablespoon of coarse ground black pepper per 5 lbs of meat (ground or sliced) to give this a little heat. The flavor is outstanding.
I have purchased the Mesquite flavor jerky seasoning for years. I use it every year to make deer jerky and I get may compliments on the flavor. I would not use anything else except the LEM products!
BIG 25# SEASONING PACK IS BEST DEAL IF YOU LIKE CERTAIN FLAVOR OF JERKY
I JUST PURCHASED A BIG BAG OF SEASONING WITH CURE AND FOUND OUT IT'S VERY MUCH MORE LESS EXPENSIVE TO GET IT IN BULK IF YOU LIKE IT LIKE ME. I USUALLY HAVE BOUGHT THE SEASONING BATCHES THAT MAKES JUST 5 #'S OF WHAT FLAVOR YOU LIKE AND TRY TO FIND USUALLY A COUPLE OF LONDON BROIL ROASTS TO GET AS CLOSE THE WEIGHT OF MEAT NEEDED. YOU GET 5 TIMES MORE SEASONING WITH CURE AND CAN BUY ANY SIZE WEIGHT OF MEAT TO MAKE THE JERKY AND SAVE SEVERAL DOLLARS IN THE LONG RUN. I JUST MADE 6 POUNDS OF JERKY TONIGHT---UUUMMM!! LOVE THAT MESQUITE FLAVOR FOR ME AND FRIENDS. YOU JUST CALCULATE THE AMOUNT OF SEASONING AND CURE TO USE AND ADD CERTAIN AMOUNT OF WATER PER POUND. IT HAS GOOD DIRECTIONS ON PACKAGE TO GET IT RIGHT. I USE A DEHYDRATOR AND OVEN BOTH TO DRY ON JERKY TRAYS I"VE BOUGHT JUST FOR THIS IN THE PAST. I USUALLY GET THE MEAT MAN TO CUT IT UP AT GROCERY STORE AND TRIM ANY FAT OFF AND I LET IT SIT OVERNIGHT IN FRIG TO MARINATE. THEN NEXT MORNING I START THE DRYING PROCESS AND TAKES ABOUT 5 HOURS ON DEHYDRATOR TO BE JUST RIGHT. ALSO CAN MAKE MY OWN USING DEER MEAT AS I HAVE EQUIPMENT TO MAKE SLIM JIMS USING GROUND DEER OR A JERKY BOARD TO CUT EVEN SLICES OFF DEER HAMS. LOVE THAT JERKY!!
Used the mesquite in 5lb batch of venison jerky. Very good product with delivering great flavor and taste. Will buy it again. Can't wait to try hickory next. Thanks, John.
I recently purchased the Backwoods Jerky Seasoning Variety pack that contained Original, Hot, Hickory, and Mesquite. I made all four varieties and everybody in our camp agreed that the Mesquite was by far the best! It has a great smokey flavor that kept us coming back for more. I have since ordered a five pound package that can't get here soon enough!
