What's the best way to cut jerky into strips?

Willis from PA asked:

What's the best way to cut jerky into strips?


That's a tough question to answer because there are so many great methods of slicing jerky. First, you may want to answer a few questions for me:

How many pounds of jerky will you be slicing?
- If you are slicing a lot of jerky - 20lbs of raw meat or more per year, I would look at Weston's 9" Commercial Slicer or their 7 1/2" Slicer.
- If you are looking at less than 20lbs per year,  I would look at Weston's Manual Jerky Slicer.
- If you only slice a couple pounds at a time, I would look at Hi Mountain's Jerky Board and Knife Set.

All of these products will do a great job for you, it simply depends on how much jerky you're going to slice and how much work you want to put into it. The Commercial Slicer will go through pounds and pounds of meat quickly. The Manual Jerky Slicer isn't electric, but makes a perfect product, and Hi Mountain's Jerky Board makes quick work of small amounts of jerky.

I've posted photos of each below. If you click on these photos, you can see the product details for each!
