Book Review - The Complete Jerky Book, By Monte Burch

I recently received a copy of The Complete Jerky Book, By Monte Burch.
The contents are:
All About Jerky
Tools And Materials
Food Safety
Old-Time Jerky Making
Sliced Muscle-Meat Jerky
Modern Ground Jerky
More Jerky Recipes
Small Game And Wildfowl Jerky
Fish Jerky
I think this book is more for the hunter beef jerky maker, rather than the casual beef jerky maker. The book goes into great detail about butchering your own meat and food safety issues involved with hunting your own game. That said, there are a lot of interesting recipes and if your are someone who makes jerky at home you could find some of them very helpful and quite tasty.

The book does discuss several methods for drying meat for jerky. You can dry it in your oven, or use a food dehydrator or smoker.

About the Author:
