    guys and gals... I love john and this isn't against him but don't make this in the oven. Buy a jerky maker for the price of one botch (which is highly likely) and make it easily and right every single time. I mean, you can cut down a tree with a framing hammer too but there is a better way. )edit) this is for us that don't have ovens that do "low" temps.

    Followed the recipe to exact and turned out like crap, very oily and greasy. And the meat was lean with no visible fat on it. Any ideas why anyone?

    Check out his pot roast is the absolute BEST and most thick flavorful recipe I have ever had. I use it and have it memorized. It's soo amazingly good. I always get all proud whenever I make his pot roast. That searing and the shoulder blade cut...the the thick gravy and the most important aside from wearing the meat is the Rosemary and thyme . It's amazing. Now I can't wait to try THIS recipe. Thanks chef John! I really are the best!

    I didn’t know this, but most of the beef sticks you find at the grocery store or gas station are loaded with artificial ingredients and low-quality meat. In some cases, they’re not even 100% beef!

    Plus, the meat could come from cows that were raised in feedlots or injected with antibiotics and steroids. If you eat meat on a regular basis, you NEED to know where your beef is coming from.

    Well now, there’s a better way to get high-quality meat shipped right to your door. Farmers Box now sells Grassland Farms Grass-fed Beef Sticks. This meat comes straight from the farm of Joel Salatin.

    It not only tastes great but is also a healthier way to add some high-quality protein and fat to your diet.

    If you eat beef sticks or enjoy eating beef regularly, you definitely want to try this.

    Check it out for yourself here:

    I know you’ll taste the difference! Let me know what you think.
