Gathering and building on experience gained as a certified short-order chef, trained
gourmet caterer and a 20-year veteran Meat Cutter, this handbook is a labor of love, conceived and delivered by John F. Langford, a dedicated father and Beef Jerky Artist for over 25 years. After over fifteen years of developing and perfecting his top secret marinades, and ureged by friends and family to wirte this book, he is finally ready to share them with you. As a fellow Beef Jerky connoisseur, John hopes you really enjoy this handbook and the gourmet Beef Jerky it helps you to make. He would be delighted to hear about your Beef Jerky adventures and the custom marinades that you ultimately create for yourself, for your family, and your friends as you master this beloved art. If you find that you like eating Beef Jerky more than making it, your Uncle John can usually be persuaded to make some for you.
