I use a NESCO, that I bought at the hardware store.


Like it just fine. First thing I did was take the hacksaw and cut a little more off the tip that makes the sticks.....made it just a little smaller than a dime in diameter.


The other tip would be to add some water to your meat when you are ready to shoot it...makes it go more smoothly through the gun.

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

I use the LEM Jerky Cannon, it works great. Also have the original Jerky Shooter and NESCO Jerky Works. Only use the Jerky Cannon anymore, its aluminum and holds a pound of meat. I use the round tip, and make up a pound of sticks as I need them. I think they taste better that way. Getting ready to make a batch up here shortly, that I mixed yesterday.

I have the Hight Mountain Seasoning gun/kit. It works pretty nice, the only one I have ever used. I've even "stuffed" snack sticks with it. It's not the greatest for that, but it works.

My grinder doesn't stuff well, so I tried the gun. I wouldn't be shocked if the next year or two that is fails, I've had it for 7 years so far. The plastic looks weak in a few spots.

x 3 on the LEM jerky cannon I use the dbl jerky tip and I love it ! I make about 120 lbs of goose jerky every year out of it !!
Just remember if you add water to if your stuff will take a lot longer to dry and its a bit messier ! I have been making this amount of jerky every year for the past 20 + years and I still have the same gun !

Blend in or go hungry !!
