I once brough nearly 5 pounds of jerky to work one day. And took an empty bag home 9 hours later. I'd wager taht I only gave a half pound of that away to co-workers.

if i remove the silverskin and all extraneous fat, marinate and then dehydrate in the excalibur dehydrator, then vaccuum seal in foodsaver bags or glass jars (well hidden from the family so they don't eat it all immediately) what can i expect the shelf life of my jerky to be?

Pretty much eternity.

I do mine the lazy/easy way... ground turkey mixed up with soy and worsch then pushed through an extruder (looks like a caulk gun) onto trays and 5 hours in my dehydrator. Nothing amazing but good, reasonably cheap and not all the added crap you get with the store stuff.

It will survive the apocalypse. And you don't need to vacuum seal it.

Because of this thread. I just went to the store and bought a sirloin tip roast and extra lean ground beef to make some jerky tomorrow.....the meat is currently marinating and the dehydrator is patiently waiting to be fired up tomorrow!!!!!

Beef pectoral is hands-down the best muscle for jerky. It is the right thickness, consistent grain, lean, easy to de-nude, and inexpensive.

Marinate wet... Websites like this have good jerky cures... http://shop.himtnjerky.com/online/home.php?cat=248

Pectoral... not brisket.

Not necessarily. Here's some venison loin (deer) from my latest batch. I cure in the oven. Fantastic.
