The cannon made perfect beef sticks, It was so much easier then the old way of making them.
AWESOME! Jerky making was SO much easier and more uniform. EXCELLENT product
This was purchased to replace an older, plastic jerky shooter. It holds more meat and is very easy to clean. It operates smoothly.
Cannon works great
Just made 5 lbs of meat sticks. The Jerky Cannon worked flawlessly.

Best jerky gun I ever had. Got tired of the cheap plastic ones this will last a lifetime.
Had high hopes but
I have dogs on a very special diet and make all their food & treats. I bought this specifically to make jerky for them out of ground beef. Every time I make them blood from the meat leaks out around the cap and gets all over my kitchen. Its like a murder scene!! The plastic doesn't appear to make a tight seal. I initially was very happy with the ease of use, compared to a cheaper version I had been using, and I like the larger barrel, but the leaking is a deal breaker for me. I'm very disappointed in this product. I wanted to give it a much higher rating but can't go above a 2 star.
Great gadget. Make sure you coat the tube AND nozzle with olive oil for easier clean-up. The add on nozzle is a bit too long so wear rubber gloves - to push the excess meat out of the nozzle. 10mm socket removes the end nut (meat will get under the disc). Other than that I DO recommend this "caulking gun" inspired device.
I got this in the mail and it had a kink in the tube like it got karate chopped. This made the tube too narrow to get the cup to slide past it. I was anxious to use it and I didn't want to pay 5 more dollars shipping to get another, and I didn't want to wait two weeks either. So, I banged it around a little till it worked. It's gonna be fine now, but not real impressed with my first lem product. It might have been damaged in the mail.
Love this jerky cannon is very durable and cleanup was easy. Can make a lot of jerky very quickly, holds lots of meat and works like a charm.
Best hunting investment ever !
This is Awesome ! Saves me time and money I would always hand cut jerky meat and dry in a dehydrator now I just grind meat throw into Jerky Cannon put jerky on trays and put into the oven at 250 degrees for 2.5 hours and bingo jerky !
Tried it for the first time tonight making beef sticks and NEVER AGAIN! I mixed pork and venison 80/20 and it didn't stand a chance of stuffing a casing unless I added A LOT of water!!! Firing up the smoker to BOIL them in the morning! 125% disappointed in this product
The Jerky cannon is worth it's weight in gold.The seasoning LEM has is excellent.You can get different flavors - I like them all. I add a little red and black pepper to the mix. I was skeptical about it but love it. The seasoning packs make 4 or 5 pounds, it don't sound like much it's plenty.The collagen casings take more time if you decide to use the mahogany collagen casings be sure to purchase the 6" tube.It is a pain trying to put casing on the 2" tube with the 6" smaller diameter you can put a whole hank on. The small packs make 4 or 5 lbs. Don't sound like much, once you see how much a batch makes you will see it pays for itself with a batch. I use it to make beef jerky and sell it to friends and the word travels fast. The attachment that makes the flat jerky out of casing is so easy and fast to make and clean you will be surprised. I was a skeptic but not any more.The 6" tube for the cannon is sold separate for $ 15. I think it is 3/8 diameter. Try it !!
Just finished my first batch of jerky and the Jerky Cannon works great! Well made and the perfect size to make 5 pound batches. I think I am going to try and make sausage with it. Meat grinders don't work that well for stuffing sausage.
Man I bought the LEM jerky canon kit - it came with the original jerky seasoning and snack stick mix. I tried it last night per instructions. I was impressed on how easy it was to use. I also got the jerky trays that fit perfectly in my 40 inch master built smoker. 190 degrees for 2 hours 30 minutes. Perfect results. Good job LEM. Ready to try the summer sausage kit now.
Easy to Clean
Well made, easy to clean, only 1 issue though, capacity. I make 5 lbs. jerky at a time.

This Jerky Cannon is a wonderful Product. I first bought a Nesco Jerky gun and it was pure junk. It fell apart the 1st time I used it and made a huge mess. This LEM Jerky Cannon was effortless and made perfect strips. Cleanup was a breeze and the quality of is outstanding. If you are looking for a Jerky gun this is the one to buy.
Awesome jerky gun. I think this model of jerky gun it a way better than the other gun. It has a large capacity, good construction, you can buy few other accessories. It looks and is built solid for heavy duty work. My advice when using this product is first, build small meat logs (it will be easier to fill the cannon) and clean it soon as you have finished the job. The faster you clean it, the easier it will be. The only thing you can add to this cannon is a small brush to clean the mouth. Wish it came with the JERKY CANNON & GUN BARREL STOMPER and a small brush to clean the nozzle.
I am really happy with this heavy duty design. Where my buddy bought a cheaper flimsy brand it broke on the first use. Pay the little extra and get the "CANNON". I should have it for some time trouble free. Loads quick and easy, cleans quick and easy, spare parts, accessories too.
I've owned my Jerky Cannon for many years now. It has proven to be sturdy and reliable. I'm thinking of getting a second barrel for mine. This IS the way to go if you use ground meat for jerky. I make jerky sticks with mine too. I don't even bother with casings sometimes.
Awesome product and fun
I picked up one of these Jerky Cannons and it has been made a big hit at our house. it's so easy to use and I can put together any flavor of venison snack sticks in no time. My children often ask during deer season, "Dad what kind of snack sticks are we making this weekend." This product has allowed me to make and process venison that we used to give away. It also allows me to use up the old roasts that might have been thrown out because it wasn't eaten before the next deer season started. Get your children to do this with you and have a fun filled family weekend.
Great Jerky Cannon and Cure
Made my first batch of snack sticks with the cure included in the Jerky Cannon kit. Outstanding!! It was easy to use, easy to clean and the snack sticks tasted great.
Wow this cannon is great.I did 15 lbs. of meat in like a half hour. Its really well made and I love the way it does it with ease. you better buy one you won't be sorry.
Good Jerky and Stick Gun!
I just got done shooting 25lb. of deer and 5lb. beef through my Cannon for jerky and sticks (no casing). It worked very well....SO much easier than a rolling pin and wax paper!!! Very glad I spent the extra money and got the bigger Cannon! It seems to be built very well and should last a long time with proper care. The only suggestion I would have for LEM is I think it would be nice to have a larger diameter gun to make loading easier.
needs bigger tube
Jerky gun is very well made it just needs a bigger tube so its easier to load and it would be nice to have more capacity 3-5 lbs LEM SERVICE: Jason-it is a great idea and something we are currently researching..thanks
