Default Deer Jerky

I was fixing to make some deer jerky and a friend said I need to freeze the meat for two months to kill any paricites. I did some resurch and it looks to be true. What does TBH think?

I am sure that the processors don't hold meat for 2 months before smoking it.

I typically bring the jerky to temp in the oven or smoker to kill any parasites. Freezing does not effectively kill them 100%. You can then switch to dehydrator if preferred.

Never heard about freezing for 2 months.

the only reason you need to freeze your jerky meat is to make it easier to slice.
