Punctuality

I should be at the trail-head right now, but instead, I am waiting on my tardy friend.

Anyway, expect nothing until Wednesday night unless Neocon finally decides to post something.

You Are NOT Funny, Murphy.

I just turned down a four hour coverage shift at a pretty nice pay-rate because it would prevent me from picking up my mother-in-law from the airport anything even resembling on time.

The Beef Is Drying!

I repeat, the beef is drying!

Rather than fiddle with the oven, cost of propane or the oven, and cost of cranking the A/C to counteract the oven’s desire to turn the house into a sweat-box lately, I have decided to suspend my beef strips on racks in front of a box fan. I used a silhouette target as a wind-tunnel of sorts to direct as much wind through my jerky as possible. If it hasn’t succeeded by the time I get home from picking up the mother-in-law at midnight, I’ll toss it in the oven for a few hours.

Operation Jerky Is A Go!

My trip into the boonies starts early Monday morning. I have just placed a healthy portion of carved up cow into the fridge to marinate using this recipe.

Tomorrow begins the dehydration phase.
