comment What are other techniques are used to tenderize steaks apart from using a meat mallet?
@justkt heh, yeah. I should have said "quite a job". I used it to get corroded batteries out of my flashlight once. A steak overnight in a marinade of Coke is, um, quite tenderized.

comment Cakes that can be cooked whilst camping?

comment Is there a way to make Beef Jerky at home?
I tried Alton's trick with the filters and fans after watching that episode a while back just out of curiosity and it worked great. This is what I was going to suggest also.
