Eye of round.

Well I been a busy beaver today trying to find some jerky meat for next week. Albertsons usually the go too place but they were trying to charge 4.99 for the stuff. After enduring torture at the Mexican Market and finding it also crazy high priced..took off to Restaurant Depot where they had a bunch of nice IBP Select grade for 2.65 so snagged about 13 lbs or so. Having worked with the stuff previously it is kicking my coola to figure out some expeditious way to peel off the fat and silver skin. Anybody have a clue on that? Thanks. While trying to find the answer on the net..hit this link about beef in general and thought yall might like to see it. Appears fairly informative.

I make a lot of jerky with deer tenderloin, which also has a tough silverskin. I use a very sharp short blade Rapala or similar fish fillet knife to trim the SS. Start about one-quarter way from the end, slip the knife all the way through, and gently lift the SS from the meat, as though filleting a fish from the skin. You might lose a little meat.

Mighty pretty country. Have some ex inlaws from around Connelsville if you ever heard of that town. I was an old Texas Hypo for quite a few years. Worked real close with the Game Wardens at times..and tried to dodge them so they didnt catch us too of course. One of my old partners is the Warden for the Waggoner Ranch headquarted in Vernon, TX. He is a private Warden but they have some kind of deputy status where they can enforce most anything on the Ranch and on any roads which passes through. Very coushy job. Free 4 wheel drive..free house..free meat..veggies etc. Spends most of his time taking big shots hunting. I am still highly jealous about that...lol.

That is all I use for jerky, it is very lean so very little trimming required.

Well before the nice Perch Pimp chimed in. I had went ahead and figured out a plan. I froze them for an hour and cut them direct half in two and turned them cut side down leaving a flat base giving a much better down stroke. Then just whittled off the sides and end with my trusty Forschner 6" curved boner. Got ir done pretty dang quick and not much loss of edible meat. I am going to do future eye of round endeavors the same way. Now I did go nuts and slice it up with the grain. First bag I sold the guy couldnt bite through the stick. Crossways next time..kick kick. Anyway I am going back and cutting up the mistake into bite sized chunks. Notice Tom Thumb/Safeway is running CAB Flank Steak for 2.99. Thats a buying clue. Sure be glad when they do the deal on Top Sirloin again. Now that makes some great jerky. Also this latest session was my first experience with cure. Makes it nice and red on the inside. Used 1.5 T. TQ to 2.5 cups marinade. Not quite salty enough. Will use 2 T. next time.

You asked a question, and I gave you a tip based on my experience, expressed with courtesy and respect. You called me a rabbit sheriff and a perch pimp. You are no sportsman, no gentleman, and my words for you would be unprintable in this forum.

Let's play nice and keep this about the jerky and not being a jerk. Let's get back on topic and I might remind bigwheel no pic = no cook! Let's get back to the food porn!

I just have to get this off my back here. Game Warden, Big Wheel does not mean any disrespect to you at all, it is just his way. He can be aggravating, at times, but straight down to it, all of us here have been here for a bit of time posting on these forums. Though most of us have never met, and will probably never meet, I would still call them friends. We are not here to be belligerent, or mean to others, in fact most if not all the regular people on this forum will help anyone else out if needed. Yes sometime we poke fun at each other, that is just our persona's. When I first started posting here, personally I thought BW was kinda flaky, and arrogant, but the truth of the matter is. If you post with a problem, is he one of the first to respond with trouble shooting, and possibly fixes to your issue. But please get to know people before you start saying they are not gentlemen, or your other remarks please. If you have a legitimate problem with something, or someone, please by all mean report it, but report it in a pm to an admin, or moderator of the site. Please do not start name calling, or disrespecting people in an open forum, I have seen many flame wars start like that, with both parties involved being banned from the site. You could also pm the person involved, and handle it that way.

BigWheel, you have been a bad boy, now put your pointy hat on and go sit in the corner.


Okay, my big speech is done....

Well I accepted your tip with a warm embrace and profuse thanks. Sorry you became so incensed on the affectionate job descriptions. Been teasing Bambi Protectors and Slab Savers along the same line for way too long to give it up based on what some rookie has to say about it. Having a thin skin..puffed up pride and an inability to control words and emotions is not a plus in your chosen line of work. Would advise you to get over it or find another career.

Right..pellet poopers. Pretty sure the little black balls from under the rabbit pens should work. They can also be sold up North as Smart Pills.

yep..sorry about that Griff. Everything up North of the Red River gets lumped in as part of the great frozen North type thing. Who wants to walk across the tundra and get bit by giant insects while trying to find Sister Sarah? Has she still go the same old hubby?
