Based on the Link family signature recipe, our Original Beef Jerky is slowly cooked over a special blend of hardwoods for the classic flavor America loves.

View Full Version : how do you determine 1 oz. of meat? Gary Fangthis seems really dumb but…..how do YOu determine an oz of meat? Andrew BreyerPersonally, I would weigh it. Brandon OtoThere is a certain Zen in this exchange that I do not wish to disturb. Scott Clark1oz of meat? That would just **** me off 😉 Seriously, just weigh it a few times and then eyeball it . Jay Cohen[QUOTE=Brandon Oto;221542]There is a certain Zen in this exchange that I do not wish to disturb.]QUote OM Derek MaffettAbout the amount of meat that would fit into the palm of your hand is 4 oz. So a fourth of that. Just weigh it until you have a good idea. Its not like you have to be 100% on target. George MounceThere is a certain Zen in this exchange that I do not wish to disturb. Mu. (Extra words to not describe my extra words.) Gary Fanghaha thanks guys, just needed a general idea of how much an oz. is. Steve Formanthats an easy question, I thought it was trick one at first. An oz is an oz. :rofl: Michael D. PerkinsWhat about beef jerky? I cant find anything that talks about jerky and Zone blocks. Im guessing 1 oz of jerky is 1 block. And more specifically, what about making your own jerky in the oven at 150 degrees with the door cracked open for like 12 hours? Wont that turn like 3 oz thin strips of raw meat into 1 oz dried jerky or is it 1 to 1 and 1 oz thin strips of raw beef is bigger than Im thinking of. Very confused but would like to try to make my own jerky unless it shrinks my giant steak into little itty bitty 1-zone block strips of mini-jerky… Sorry for the mini-rant but the more packages of jerky I pick up and read, the more ****ed I get. Some of that crappy jerky might as well be a Whopper junior without the bun, at least it would taste better-ish… George MounceI make jerky all the time Michael, and I weigh it after its cooked. I would never eat that stuff in a package, they put too much crap in it. Sarena KopcielI make jerky all the time Michael, and I weigh it after its cooked. I would never eat that stuff in a package, they put too much crap in it. I too make jerky periodically. Have even made wild salmon jerky. Yummy! Johan Blixt DackhammarIn case youre more of a gram guy: 1 ounce = 28.3495231 grams Scott KustesI think you usually do a 4:1 conversion of meat weight to jerky since jerky becomes very lightweight after drying. I could be wrong though since I havent Zoned in quite some time now. James FalknerIsnt ounce a unit of weight, whereas a gram is a unit of mass? The whole thing in the zone diet about “half a cup of grapes” or “half an apple” always screws with me head – a cup is a unit of volume, so how can two half-cups of grapes ever be the same, since all grapes are different? (yeah, I know its an approximation – but if you want to be exact, its just not possible). Ben Moskowitzweight technically is a unit of force, mass X acceleration due to gravity. For what you deal with in the kitchen, weight and mass are synonomous, and ounce is English units whereas gram is metric. You can convert between the two. I sometimes get hung up on approximating a half-cup without a measuring cup. To worry about measuring with a measuring cup in hand is when you break into obsessive territory, apparently. If youd like, you could track everything with fitday to be calorically precise. If youd like to have your measuring precise, then reference everything by mass, using a nutritional analysis website like nutritiondata.com, and use a scientific scale… For the beef and turkey jerky i have with me, it says 1 oz. has 14g protein. So this jerky right here is 0.5 oz per block protein. Although I agree, theres a bunch of other ingredients in this bag here… argh. James FalknerHeh.. my engineering mind just wont allow me to use volume (e.g. half a cup) for precise nurtritional dosing, except for liquids of course. I have a postal scale (used for weighing envelopes to determine how many stamps to stick on), and use it for accurate measurement up to 16 oz. When the zone diet calls for “half a cup” of something, I usually ignore it, and use http://nutritiondata.com (wfs) to figure how how many grams of food constitute how many grams of protein, carbs, or fat, then convert into zone blocks. That is, until I get used to a particular food and can eyeball it. PS: I think it may have come up in this thread, but CFJ#21 has more than one mistake in the recipes near the end. I cant recall which now, but theyre in there (and theyre obvious).
