What you'll learn in this meat class:

You really can't beat good beef jerky. Believe it or not, this road trip staple is incredibly easy to make! What's more, most of the techniques involved can be applied to a wide variety of meats like venison, elk and other game.

In Jerkin' Around, Ted will take you through all the steps involved with making your own jerky. We'll talk about the best cuts, marinading methods as well as the drying and dehydrating process. Just like in the Sausage Making Class, we'll begin with a demonstration showing the process from start to finish.

Each participant will then get to try their hand at slicing meat for jerky. Everyone then gets their own grip of sliced meat (about 2 lbs.) and is set loose on our marinade bar where you'll be able to make your own proprietary custom jerky marinade. Over the next few days, the Dickson's team will dehydrate everything for you and you'll come back to the shop to pick up your custom jerky to show off to your friends.

Please wear a sweater; classes take place in our cutting which is at about 60 degrees.

Attended: Jerkin' Around: How to Make Beef Jerky
Loved this class. The guys were great; so knowledgeable and helpful. Before class started, they served a delicious array of charcuterie and pates with bread. There was wine, soda, and water available as well. They explained the whole philosophy of the shop and from where they get their meat. Then, a great explanation of the cut of meat used as well as knife honing and trimming the meat. We were partnered up and we took turns trimming and slicing our 2 lbs of meat. We received a plastic bag filled with 1/2 lb perfectly trimmed meat to add to what we trimmed. Then we each got to choose our seasonings and marinade. I'm picking it up on Sunday! Can hardly wait!

The two instructors who taught the class were excellent. They were very informative. They discussed and demonstrated all aspects of making jerky. Looking forward to more hands-on classes.
