Dried Duck Treats

Ours love dried duck, but we haven't been able to find any that isn't made in China. Has anyone found a source for these made in the USA, Canada, etc.? I do already have a dehydrator, so making them myself is a plan B option, but I have no idea how to go about that (what to buy, how to do it, etc.)

Ed Broskey’s Duck Jerky

Just when I was working on a good duck jerky recipe, along comes Ed Broskey, one of our Sporting Chef friends. Seems Ed had a few duck breasts on hand and he figured out a way to use them up, presumably so that he could go shoot some more. Ed claims that he has picked up a few good ideas from the Sporting Chef pages and we’re glad he was able to return the favor. Ed offers this tip – try slicing the breasts with an electric knife when still a bit frozen. It will keep the slices more uniform and won’t tear up the meat. We both agree that this recipe would work great with just about any type of wild game. Ed has tried it with both goose and venison. Thanks for sharing Ed.

1 1/2 pounds duck breast, sliced thinly into 1/4-inch slices

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder and black pepper

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1 tablespoon liquid hickory smoke flavoring

dash Tabasco

2 tablespoon cream sherry

1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes

 

Combine all ingredients and meat into a zip lock bag. Refrigerate overnight, knead and turn bags several times during marinating process to mix in. Drain off liquids and put into dehydrator. Follow dehydrator instructions or to your meat textured liking.

 

If you don't have a dehydrator, you can turn your oven on to 150-200 degrees and dry for 5-7 hours or until meat feels hard, pat off excess fat beads and let cool. When using the oven, prop the door open slightly with a wooden spoon to allow moisture to escape.

 

might want to adjust the spices for doggys, other sites i found googling ' dehydrator duck dog treats' just say slice in 1/4 strips and dehydrate per your dehydrator instructions w/o any marinade. mine with a thermostat says 70 degrees C (158F) for 1st two hours then 57 C. (135F). remember to take the fatty skin off completely.

I've seen them at CostCo but I'm not sure if they are made in China or not.....

 

I checked on the ones from Costco and they are made in China the last time I checked.

I've checked every brand at Petco, Petsmart, Pet Supplies Plus, Costco, BJ's, Target, Walmart, etc. I have yet to find any that aren't made in China. Thanks for the other suggestions. I'll have to check those out. I wonder where I could buy raw duck breast if I wanted to dehydrate it myself.
