Step 1. Blend one seasoning and cure packet of NESCO® Jerky Spices with one pound of extra lean ground beef.
Step 2. To load the gun with the jerky meat mixture, hold the silver tab down and pull the red knob all the way back.
Step 3. Unscrew the red ring from the end of the tube. Place the meat mixture into the tube. Insert the desired tip attachment.
Step 4. Push the red knob until it presses against the meat. Hold the jerky gun over the dehydrator tray and squeeze the silver trigger repeatedly to release the mixture onto the tray. Dry the jerky at the highest temperature (160 degrees F) until the jerky is "leathery." It will take from 4 to 15 hours to dry.
