Did your kids finally remember to thaw the ground beef before dinner? Yes? Okay, great! Now did you flake on cooking dinner? Hey, it happens! If you're in a situation where you have 2-day old thawed ground meat in the fridge you need to cook it quickly! Don't risk it any longer than that, figure out what you're going to make. If your family isn't up for burgers or tacos, let them have a sandwich for dinner! Pull out your beef jerky caulking gun and whip up some beef jerky.
If you've always wanted to make your own jerky and were kind of skeptical of the process, I understand. Making perfect jerky strips does seem like a lot of effort. Surely in the past, it was, but not anyone. Beef jerky caulking guns make jerky making a breeze.

There's nothing complicated about this snack stick maker. Load the gun with beef and squeeze the trigger for perfect flat strips. This heavy-duty jerky gun holds 3/4 of a pound of meat and comes with two nozzles. Work with a 1/2 inch round nozzle or a flat nozzle. If that's not enough, you'll be happy to know that it's also dishwasher safe.
If you're making jerky for the first time, I'd give the jerky gun a shot. $19.99 is a fantastic price, and chances are you're always going to have a pound of ground meat in your fridge that needs to be cooked before spoiling!
You can cook jerky in a food dehydrator or use your oven. Who's excited to make some jerky? LEM even threw in a seasoning packet of Backwoods jerky seasoning! A jerky kit for under $20? That's a steal.
