"It had been years since I watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation so when it came on the other night, I popped a bowl of popcorn and sat down to watch it. I had forgotten how funny the turkey scene was and it inspired me to create this turkey jerky recipe. Consume within 3 days or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 30 days."
