    We travel to Africa a lot and have eaten a lot of biltong. The South Africans have it done to a fine art. If you google search on making biltong you could get some great tips on how to do it. You can also buy pre-mixed biltong seasoning online.

    Have you seen those jerky guns? They look like a silicon or large glue gun and are used to press out minced jerky into nice uniform strips for easy dehydration. In regards to biltong, it was traditionally designed to be used with game meat so it probably would work well with strips of deer (not minced) "bil" - meaning buttock and "tong" - meaning strip ie strip of meat from the rear of the animal. I make biltong all the time but with beef (usually rump) and I do make jerky sometimes also they are both great to snack on.
