About Me

My name is Brian Forbes and I have been making beef jerky using ground beef for about a decade. It all started when I tasted it for the first time, and I was hooked right from the start.

Over the years, I always brought my homemade beef jerky to work and let my friends try out my recipe creations. All of them loved the jerky, and then they were amazed when I told them it was made with hamburger meat.

Since there is not a lot of information about making ground beef jerky online, I decided to make a website and write a couple books to show people just how easy and fun making jerky this way really is.

There is a lot less prep work, the process is easier, and the results are the best jerky you have ever tasted in your life. This is so much fun, and now I get to share it with you too.

To get started, just go right to the home page and start reading. By the time you get to the end, you will know the basics, and you will be able to get started making your own jerky.

From there, you can check out recipes, read about equipment, and really get a full understanding of the hobby. Once you make that first batch, you will be so happy you gave it s try.

Finally, if you get stuck on anything on my site or in my books, please check out my contact information and I’ll be glad to help.
