Title: Clucking Jerky
Post by: MossyMO on January 16, 2016, 01:13:59 PM
My wife asks me the other day "I wonder how chicken breast would be for jerky?", I reply "No idea, let's try it!". These were some good sized chicken breasts!

So we ground up 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast for ground jerky in the Honey BBQ flavor... and then sliced up 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast for whole muscle jerky in the Sweet & Spicy flavor. Both the ground and the whole muscle chicken jerky got a combination of maple/hickory/cherry smoke while on the grill, indirect at 150.

End results were that chicken sure makes for a lighter color jerky and the taste is all there, a little more chewy but for the price when chicken goes on sale would definitely make it again!

Thanks for looking!

 O0 That looks great, MM! How long does it take to dry that?

Thanks! Some of the last pieces of chicken were coming off the grill just after 7 hours.

 O0 7 hours, that's a lot quicker than I expected.
