Raspberry Chipotle Jerky with a Weston Jerky Gun

If you're getting bored with your standby jerky recipes, this will definitely shake things up!

Makes 1 lb jerky

- Ingredients -

2 lbs beef, venison, or wild turkey, cubed
6 oz fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon chipotle powder (this is pretty spicy - add powder a teaspoon at a time, tasting each time, until you reach your desired heat level)
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons salt

- Tools -
Weston Meat Grinder
Weston Kitchen Kit
Weston Jerky Gun
Weston Dehydrator

Grind the meat through the coarse plate of your Meat Grinder. Grind again through the medium plate. Then grind half of your medium grind through the fine plate. This grind will stick together nicely for ground jerky.

Use the Kitchen Kit with the chopper attachment secured to puree the raspberries, chipotle powder, honey, and salt together.

Mix the ground meat and puree together until uniform.

Fill the Jerky Gun with the mixture, then press the trigger to extrude the jerky onto Dehydrator trays.

Dehydrate at 155° for 8 hours, or until jerky is dry, but still flexible.

I have not tried making jerky this way, since I don't have a jerky gun as noted, but everything else.
I may get a gun in the future since we like jerky and many times we don't have meat that will work for jerky (like stew meat). Maybe someone who has a jerky gun will post a comment on how it worked for them.
