I have used this jerky kit several times and made 25lbs of ground beef jerky with it already. The gun is real easy to use and is smooth. The racks don't set on top of eachother as well as I would like but is workable, and the double tip for the flat jerky doesn't seperate the sticks like it should. I have found I need to insert something in the middle so the sticks come out seperated otherwise I spend too much time trying to seperate the meat after expelled out of the gun. The double tip flaw is the only problem I have with this setup. The gun could be bigger with doing alot of meat @ one time. I am in overall quite pleased with this product so far especially for the price.
