Hi Mountain Jerky Preparation Kit
Makes slicing easy
Bought this and the Jerky Cannon, used the cannon with ground beef - that worked great, decided to get brace and try muscle meat - I used a top loin roast, froze it a lttle bit - and then sliced.
The slicing board makes it a breeze to get nice even slices, but definately partially freeze the meat first so it doesn't 'curl up on you' as you slice it.
Not sure how to use the insert it comes with which I guess it for slicing vegatables or what not - it could have come with instructions for that.

Was Skeptical but now I am a Believer
So when I saw this I was a little skeptical, actually I was a lot skeptical. I figured it was just another gimmick and I would be wasting my money but I figured on the slim chance it worked it would save a lot of time and most important frustration.
So I tried it out with 9 pounds of half frozen deer meat and to my surprise it worked just like it should! just lay the meat down set the knife on the edges and slice away. The knife is razor sharp! but oddly enough as long as you use the little holder that the kit comes with the chances of cutting yourself are pretty slim. I did put the cutting board on an anti slip mat so it would not move on me while I was slicing. All of the pieces are uniform size which is key to consistency when making good jerky.
If you are skeptical I say go for it you wont be sorry.

Have had the jerky board for over 10 years and love it. Knife is still VERY sharp.
The incert boards are to help keep smaller pieces of meat even. There should be 2, one for each thickness of the board. Place them on the board beside you meat. It gives you a firmer surface to slide the knife along. It will also help you avoid curled meat.
Hope this helps..

Easy to use and works great. Cheaper and easier to store and clean than an electric slicer. Knife came out of the box extremely sharp and has held it's edge very well after several uses. Great product and highly recommended.
