    Homemade Jerky, Backpacker Dinners -- recipes???

    Calling all jerky-making geniuses and newbies out there --
    Has anyone tried making jerky from canned tuna??? If so, what is the method/recipe? Do you use water-packed tuna?

    What about drying ground meat into jerky? Any success there?

    I'm looking into cost-effective means of making jerky for snacking (especially since I want to avoid some of the questionable ingredients that are rife in commercial jerkies) as well as personal or customized back-packer food for a trip I hope to make soon. (Most of the freeze-dried backpacker meals that are available rely on starches with a bit of meat and veg -- I want meat and veg only, or with appropriate starches like winter squash or sweet taters).
