If you are using it to make jerky, you are really shorting yourself on the marination aspect of it. When I make a big batch of jerky, I get the butcher to cut a sirloin tip roast for jerky, trim all vestiges of fat off of it and marinate it in a soy/worchestershire/garlic/pepper mixture in zipper bag(s) for a week before I dehydrate it.

The fat can go rancid, but the meat is preserved for f'ing ever without it.

You could do that for sure. My most loved version of shortribs is braised twice... refrigerated over night, the fat is easy to skim off.

Truth. Need the leanest cut you can get for jerky.

As to your other question Brian, yes certainly you can make stock from this cut. But why not just get some shanks or neckbones? Honestly if you are making stock you want the best bang for the buck. To me that means cuts that are almost impossible to serve. Which makes them pretty cheap thankfully.

Best,
J.

I used pork neck bones this weekend for my choucroute, mostly for flavor, I can pick some meat off them later in teh week when they are nice and cool.

You can find shortribs cut a lot of different ways, I do like them many ways, a whole bunch of flavor.

I usually marinate about 24 hours or so. I was really only referring to handling time. toss the stuff in the bag, shake it around a little, then later, stick it in the oven and take out saucer sized pieces of jerky. Not so much farting around.

I think you're right that I ought to do the stuff longer than just a day. I thought about doing the last batch in the sun rather than inside the house, but neither ants nor flies would have left it alone.
