    It sounds great. Will have to try it some time. I am thinking that my preference would be thinner slices. What are your thoughts on that?

    Well, it'll be done faster, but it'll be tougher. As I mentioned in my prev. post, cool your jerky down to room temp. (when it's done it'll be hot), then put it in one of those big ziploc bags for a day or two. It'll get darker and a bit more sticky. I do start eating mine right away, but the longer I wait, the better it gets.

    Oh, that is interesting. I thought that a thinner slice would be easier on my teeth (just broke a tooth and have a temporary crown in place, in fact). Perhaps a thicker cut will be better. I have also seen chicken jerky. Ever try that?

    Sorry about the tooth. Yes, home made beef jerky can be tough on the teeth. For sure. I'd say the perfect cut is 3/16 to slightly less than a quarter of an inch. Again, if you let it sit for a day or more, after making it, it'll get softer. If you decide to make it, post pictures!

    Yesterday my wife and I visited a Georgian restaurant for the first time. I had never tasted their traditional cuisine before, so I was very excited about the emotions I could get. We ordered Hachapuri 4 cheeses and their speciality "Shashlyk" (like barbecue).

    We also couldn't resist the Georgian house wine. The waiter highly recommended for the meat. And he wasn't wrong! It really is very tasty! Fantastic!

    Now we decided to come to them more often and try the whole menu because it is incredibly tasty!

    Have you tried something similar from Georgian cuisine, @jrbiz?

    No, I have not tried these foods, but they look delicious! It turns out that the software company I work at has a fractional CFO who lives in Georgia. I will have to ask her about these foods. Unfortunately, I am not aware of a Georgian restaurant here in New England, but I will definitely do a bit of searching to see if one exists.

    It doesn't look yummy at first at all:

    441214188_463028852833003_7757523161378353101_n.jpg

    But the end result is great:

    440874803_417383197732416_3910941424635184959_n.jpg

    Our dehydrator is old, it took close to 7 hours to finish the entire batch (all 5 trays loaded). With a better one it may only take 5. I can literally snack on them ALL DAY LONG.

    We all love it, so it doesn't last long. Up to a week maybe.

    Was at a brewery tonight and had an incredibly tasty burger with wine sauce added. I don't remember ever tasting anything more delicious. I also drank two kinds of craft beer. One beer was called a cream beer and had a creamy aftertaste. The second beer was more harsh with a hop flavor.

    I am not much of a beer drinker, but this trip to the brewery was very enjoyable for me. I am sure I will go back there again!!

    Hey @jrbiz, do you like beer?

    I really do not like the taste of beer or wine or whiskey. When I do drink (usually while accompanying a business client), I tend to go with mixed drinks where the taste of alcohol is minimized.

    Yes, a vodka tonic is my go-to because it is available at any bar. My favorite, however, is a Chi-Chi which is a pina colada made with vodka instead of rum.

    Red wine makes more sense to me than other alcoholic beverages. Light alcoholic drinks also appeal to me, especially after a hard day's work or somewhere by the sea on vacation to spend time with a few tasty cocktails. Not much but purposeful. :)
