The Cost Of Making Jerky.
You are probably like me and love Jerky but just cant stand to pay the outrages price at the store.
Good Jerky is going to cost you around $1.00 per oz. and sometimes more.
Lets weigh out the cost of buying good jerky compared to the price of making it your self
First of all like I said buying jerky is going to cost about a buck a oz. 20 pounds of purchased jerky would be approximately $320.00 . WOW you say. That's right. Why do I use 20 pounds as a reference? Because of the fact that if your a big game hunter you will have a lot more meat then 20 pounds.
Even if you don't have any jerky making equipment your first batch will pay for it self.
Lets say you have to buy everything and start from scratch, here are the numbers
Jerky Gun $20.00
Food Processor $40.00
Jerky Mix (20 pounds worth) $30.00
