Howdy. I suspect you might have gotten more replies in the Cured Meat section, but what do I know.

I usually make beef jerky on a dehydrator because I'm lazy and it turns out good. The one or two times I made it in a smoker (a warm smoker, not hot) it was outstanding. I won a blue ribbon at the county fair a few years ago with this, and it wasn't even smoked:

Bob's Beef Jerky
Take lean beef (round steak or rump roast works best) and slice it into thin strips, maybe 1/4" thick. Trim away any fat or gristle. Put the meat in a gallon ziplock freezer bag or a Tupperware bowl with a lid. To each pound of meat strips, add 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of brown sugar, and 1/2 tsp of fresh-ground black pepper. (The "fresh ground" is important) Mix it into the meat by hand and put it in the fridge overnight for the salt to start doing its magic. Next day, you can start drying it. That's it. Don't let it get too hot; you want to dry it, not cook it.

If you want to make it hotter, add some cayenne pepper to the salt-pepper-sugar mixture. If that's just too simple, add a *little* allspice or nutmeg. I personally think most jerky recipes have way more ingredients than they need. HTH Smile

I used to make my jerky slicing up London Broil, and then marinating it in a variety of mixtures, then drying it with a dehydrator. Then I got jerky gun for making jerky from gound beef. So now I trim the fat off the london broil, grind it up coarse, then mix salt, a little sodium nitrate, black pepper, garlic & onion powder in a little water and then mix this into the meat. run it back through the grinder on a finer grind, then using the jerky gun, press it into strips into the dehydrator. the ground meat makes it a lot easier to chew, and I don't have to wait for the marinade to do it's stuff. I can add a little liquid smoke if I want, or red pepper if I want it spicier, or I can use a thick teriyaki sauce to make a teriyaki jerky. Smoked jerky sounds good, but I'm not sure how to get my smoker to run down at 110 to 120 degrees so as not to cook the meat.
