    I've made it both ways, with whole muscle and with ground, both using the High Mountain cures. There are several products out there, "Jerky Shooter" comes to mind. Envision a ground meat caulking gun and you've got the idea. Lays out about an inch wide strip.

    Would that need to be on a cooking sheet? I am thinking the product, once laid out, might fall apart if not supported by the tray? Am I envisioning this correctly?

    I've used the 1/4 inch mesh seafood screen, and years ago in the oven and other smokers (gasp!) i used aluminum mesh window screen laid over the oven racks.

    If I were going to put it on anything else, I'd be tempted to use parchment paper, seems like it would hold the moisture less than a cookie sheet.

    Thanks, bigwalleye.

    Sorry for all the questions, last one for now: Do you think they sell the "jerkey shooter" @ Academy?

    As a northern boy, I can't help you on that one.

    Cabelas or Gander Mountain certainly should, though.
