Freezer burn is already partially jerkied, right?

Freezer burn is a function of sublimation.  Sublimation is the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas phase without passing through the intermediate liquid phase.  It does not effect the edibility of food, but it generally drastically degrades the palatability unless as part of a controlled freeze drying process.

The smiley face.  :chuckle:  When you put that at the end of the question it is a joke.  If you don't its a question.  Sometimes even if you put it at the end of the question you get flamed.  :bash:

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I wasn't sure if it was a joke or not.  I answered because I don't want to see anyone put much time, effort or money into something that does not have a high probability of success.

Took me 4 years to eat my Washington moose. Never lost any to freezer burn. I agree with it depends on how its wrapped comment in a previous post.
