    I have tried lots of recipes, and Uncle Abe’s is by far the best. Making jerky is a lot of work and takes valuable time. Make your efforts pay off with superb results by using Uncle Abe’s. You’ll be glad you did.

    I was looking for a good teriyaki seasoning tried many this is the best. Fallowed the directions and mixed it in 5 lb. batches The only thing I added was 1 Tbl. spoon of liquid smoke to each 5 lbs. 5 hrs. in the dehydrator turned out perfect.

  40. Richard Martin (verified owner)

    This mix is the best in any jerky class, you can add different flavoring with it or just as is !!! It’s the Best !!!

    Great original flavor. It may smell weird in powder form but it seasons the meat well and gives a nice flat salted flavor. Just don’t add to much water to your seasoning mix, otherwise it will lose it’s saltiness. Some of my clients prefer this over other, more complex, flavors.

    I personally add some fresh ground black pepper to give the jerky a bit more body.

    I had to double the amount of seasoning before I could taste anything. Once I did that, it had a good flavor. Nothing to brag about.

    We have used these seasonings in the past and have found them to be the best. I have recommended your company to many friends who have also really liked your product. This year our son wanted to start making his own jerky so naturally we gave him the best.

    This seasoning (and kit) is our favorite. It’s not overpowering, and it makes a lot of jerkey. Customer service with The Sausage Maker is always world class. If you’re not sure which flavor to go with, you cannot go wrong with this.

  4. Your jerky instructions are to heat jerky to 145 deg for 4-6 hours. The USDA recommends cooking meat fully (example poultry to 165 deg) before dehydration. Is it the Cure #1 in your kits that make the 145 deg safe? Is 145 deg safe for turkey jerky? Please advise.

    Our instructions are written specifically for BEEF or VENISON. There is no place on our packaging that states our seasoning is intended for poultry, which it is not. If you choose to make jerky with poultry (which is not advisable), please perform some research for your own safety. 

    ***poultry should be cooked to a minimum of 165F before consuming.
