Neat coincidence--that's the same way I make my raw jerky. It even looks like the same dehydrator racks. I find that raw jerky tastes better than even low-heated jerky.

Try it with no heat at all if you can--just turn the meat on the rack once the top side is dry and leave it as exposed to air as possible--preferably separating out the racks individually or at least not putting the top cover on. I find it tastes even better than jerky heated at 95 degrees and you save on electricity too.  :)

that's what i do with liver :D ... only my dehydrator goes as low as 85 degrees so i leave like that for a few hours and then cut into tiny pieces and sprinkle that on my meat for flavor. my body really loves liver, but my mind doesn't yet, so the dehydrator really works for me.

sully, that raw meat salad looks really good!

@paleophil
So just using air? Like a fan? Or just exposed air? mine only goes as low as 95 degrees F.

@ioanna
Ahh nice, I actually like fresh liver more than dried. You should keep trying different livers. I get good grass fed liver form the farmers markets, from tehse guys
http://fer-ligrassfedbeef.com/ut

I rarley get tasty liver in the stores from these guys.
http://www.wisconsingrassfed.coop/
Also try bison liver, etc. Some livers are more atsty than others. Like what I said above.

If its good dried, more power to you though! :)

Oh and thanks, the raw meat salad was delicious! :)

The latter. Unless it's really hot and humid where I am, I just air it out in the kitchen (and if someone comes round I put the trays on top of each other to avoid freaking people out, but leave the top off to allow some air in). I try to slice it rather thin to assist with this, but most days even that hasn't been necessary except to shorten drying time. I was surprised at how easy it is. It demonstrated to me once again that the old adage often comes in handy: "question everything" (within reason and where there's a possible benefit to justify spending some thought on questioning something).

Bear in mind that you do have to physically turn the meat (unless you can hang it from something), even on the hole-filled racks, or else the bottom of the meat will probably get overly moist, likely not dry and quite possibly mold.

Same here, I don't use the heat any more.

Ahh nice, some good ideas. I too have sliced thin to speed up times. Aged, or air dry does bring some flavor to the meat.

I know another cool way I learned from a guy on here a while back. If you don't have a dehydrator and want to make some jerky. You can use a ceiling fan, and hang the meat on a hanger or string right under it.

Yeah we do have mulberries here. They come right after cherries. Missouri gooseberries are soon too ripen also. Along with chokecherries. Then black raspberries come here... There's just too much to eat really! Each season a different fruit, and some fruits are ripe at the same time.

I also noticed on different sides of town, things ripen at different speeds. like things near the lake (Michigan), and things further inland.

Hi Sully,

I read your interesting -but too short- blog with the nice photos of your salads while I was just eating mine with tasty cilantro, aspargus and raw shellfish, oysters and tuna :)

Did you already post somewhere about some detailed observations of the low carb experiences ?

Would like to know more about the correlation between the amount of carbs and your workouts and others aspects.
Also with how much percentage of carbs you feel the best approximately (training, skin, hair and co) if you can say.

Thank you !

Hey Launa, I don't think I have posted that detailed things about my diet besides here and the blog.
For me, my workouts and overall health/skin etc. are best with a very simple and lower carb. I think everyone in different though.


The fruits I do the best with are the closest to wild. Wild berries I pick in season give me no problems at all. But even domesticated blueberries etc. Don't give me any problems too. As long as I get the smaller blueberries that taste kind of sour. Where as the bigger blueberries that taste very sugary just don't taste right. But things like domesticated mango, bananas, dates (and other high sugar fruits) I can only eat in small quantities and do well.

As far as meat and energy. Grass fed/wild red meats give me better training results than high quality chicken or fish.
Nuts I do ok with, but only in very small amounts. Fresh coconut and avocado I do pretty well with (even though avocado is not a nut).

Also, sequence eating definitely affects my energy too. Say if I have some salad and some steak. If I eat the salad first, the meat after. All is good, in my stools and digestion. But if I eat the salad right after the steak, I notice some problems in digestion. So eating in sequence definitely is important for my health as well.
Eating the quicker digesting foods first when eating vegetables/fruits and meats close together. (note: the raw meat salad is not something to do too often from my experience, but it is good for someone who is just starting to eat raw meat)

But as far as how much carbs. It all depends on where the carbs come from. If I eat wild raspberries, I have a strong stop signal. Not so much with bananas.
So I eat the more natural foods, whether its meat or carbs. Cause they have those stronger stop signals.

Some raw shellfish, wild fruits and nuts later...
Thank you Sully !

I have another question, how could you describe the difference in energy you have after fish, chicken and red meat ? (digestion, strenght...) ?

Didn't notice you asked a question so long ago hah.

Well, it depends when you compare grass fed beef to wild game. Also if you compare Sardines to Salmon. I don't know exactly whats healthier. I can only assume based off experience, taste, etc. That wild game is most satisfying.

Raw fresh albacore tuna is my favorite raw fish. I dehydrated it, and oils came spewing out the flesh, more oils than salmon. That's prob why I like it, but it might coincide with health. But I do feel more satisfied and at ease with red meat, especially wild.Grass fed bison, venison. I like beef and lamb, its what i get mostly. But, wild deer and bison, is far better in flavor an probably health for me.

My meats of choice by instinct are, grass fed red meats, high quality, wild game preferably. Most likely beef. I get tired of pork and chicken very very quickly. Never get tired of red meat. This is the rawpaleo forum, but chicken and pork only taste good to me if its well done crispy haha. Which is why I choose beef, the most I will want to do is cook it rare. I don;t know if its mental about it feeling more safe. Or if its instinct. Or if because pork is so fatty and bland at times. That a good cooking is needed lol

I love albacore tuna raw. It's the fattiest of the fishes (more than even King Salmon). I wish I had a local source.

Yes indeed, it oozes oil when i dehydrated it before. So flavorful when fresh and local.

I tried putting the drying racks in the fridge and air-drying it there during warm weather and it worked even better. Didn't have to turn the meat at all. I had been concerned that the fridge might be too moist, but it was the opposite--dryer and thus the meat dries more quickly and with no turning.

Caught a Salmon with my bare hands. I tried getting one with nets and throwing stones. Then I gave up and just relaxed by the river one day with a friend. The Salmon swims right up on shore.... I hurry and snatch him! Then I just finished him off with a large stone, of course so he's not flapping everywhere.

Blood, sweat, tears....aaaaannnd salmon semen haha. Was squirting out everywhere, like how the females do with their eggs. Glad I was able to catch him, I did cook him though. With apple wood chips and charcoal on the grill.

I guess just "paleo". Cause I did smoke/grill him. I got him out of the Milwaukee River. A little different than the Alaskan Salmon. So tried him cooked first. I do believe he was chinook salmon.

That's a great salmon! looks like 30+ pounds easily! Such a paleo catch... bare hands. Why did you cook it? Raw salmon is probably my favorite raw food.

You cooked the entire salmon?

Didn't you at least eat part of the salmon raw so you could relay to us how the wild salmon tasted?

Amazing...!!!! Beautiful pictures. <3

I bet it would have been tastier raw though... ;) Especially with some fresh lemon juice and sea salt...mmm.. Salmon is something I never cook, way more delicious uncooked. Wild salmon taste close to farmed, but better..lol A little less fatty for sure. I have had wild salmon fresh and raw many times. Yum!
