There’s no wrong way to make jerky but ask any hunter or outdoor enthusiast and you’ll start a debate that lasts longer than the hunting season itself. Whether you use sliced or ground meat, NESCO has the tools to make your jerky game soar and NESCO’s Original Jerky Seasoning can make any jerky recipe pop with flavor.

Ground Meat

Using a lean ground meat provides opportunity for more customized jerky options. You can combine two types of meat to enhance the flavors, and using the NESCO Jerky Gun means you can create three types of jerky using the interchangeable attachments for wide strips, dual strips, and round sticks.

Sliced Jerky

Sliced meat jerky can also be made out of any cut of lean meat. You can cut it yourself to a desired thickness or ask your local butcher to do so. The general rule is 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness for the easiest drying.

NESCO Original Jerky Seasoning Makes Any Jerky Recipe Pop with Flavor


No matter which method you choose: ground meat or sliced meat, NESCO’s Original Jerky Seasoning, or one of NESCO’s other flavor seasonings, can elevate your jerky game even more.

The seasoning mix and cure packs can be mixed directly into your lean ground meat or, by simply adding a 1/2 cup of water to the seasoning and cure packs, you can turn it into a simple marinade for your sliced jerky.

A few hours in a NESCO Dehydrator or a conventional oven and you have the perfect homemade snack.

Whichever way you make your jerky, enjoy the snack with friends and family and let NESCO help with the process. With products like the NESCO Jerky Gun, NESCO Dehydrators, and NESCO Original Jerky Seasoning we can improve any culinary experience for you.
