Default Deer jerkey diet

So I was thinking about this low carb diets. Why has someone not down a deer jerkey diet. It dries out most all the fat, has very few carbs, and is handy for snacks through the day. Might process a deer this year and try this. keep the back straps and tenderloin. Jerkey the rest.

High sodium diet isn't very healthy.

Maybe just smoke it and dehydrate it with 1/4 the seasoning

Fatal flaw in that diet, aside from the salt, is that it's impossible to have a pile of jerky around the house and not eat it all in 48 hours or less.

If you do it, try to keep the spices to herbs and peppers. Don't add any salt.

I couldn't afford that diet. My deer jerky usually ends up to be around $300 a pound.

Low fat, low carb, high protein will eventually kill you, it's rabbit starvation.

You need either fat or carbs for fuel.

I got a few laughs when I said I jerkeyed (a word?) all my pronghorn antelope when I was in Colorado and Montana but everyone loves jerky and it is easy to do. I would run a couple of those cheap jerky dryers with like 6 racks. Did bananas and other stuff too.
My teeth aren't that good anymore or I would do it more often.

I try to eat low carb and occasionally snack on homemade deer jerky but not too often because of the sodium. I never eat store bought jerky AKA salt & sugar sticks.

Make your jerky using ground deermeat and it will be easier to chew.

I say go for it of course you need to supplement and keep the salt intake low. Let us know how you do. I personally think if done right you can get some good results.

Sheet of plywood

Amaze smoker and what ever wood flavor you love

Make a box out of ply wood. String up the seasoned/cure added meat and light the amaze. I do a whole Pronghorn or deer in 1.5 days or less .

I was actually talking about the total cost of hunting divided by pounds of meat.

For real, your body will absolutely starve without adequate fat or carbs

Keto is high fat low carb. High protein low carb low fat is no bueno.

If you make jerky out of meat it dries out the fat by removing water from the fat but the fat is still there. Eating jerky would be no different than just eating venison steaks every meal. Itís low fat bc venison is naturally low in fat.

I'm reading a book that was written in 1900 about the early settlers of Texas and Indian fighters, and there are several stories where they mention eating Jerky and dipping it in honey.
I guess back then there were a lot of bee's and honey was plentiful while tromping through the countryside.
Texas had a lot of black bears also roaming the hill country of central Texas.

Just depends on when Spanish introduced them. East coast had them in 1600ís but west coast didnít until mid to late 1800ís.

Honey is magic stuff!

You can do pretty dang well with meat and honey, or make pemmican with the deer jerky and some beef tallow.

Even doing an entire deer in jerky the yield is low, and the sodium level is way to high for my diet.
