    Everything looks good so far and now I need to ask you for the particulars on your smoking the jerky. The first time I did it you could hardly chew it for it was way over done. So what temp? Then for how long?? What woods did you use???

    Every time I've smoked jerky, I usually just smoke it as cold as I can for ~2-3 hours. I always finish up with my dehydrator for about 6-8 hours. Turns out great, and it's easier to get it "perfect" in the dehydrator.

    What type of meat do you use to make your jerky?
  10. I use "special" meat....[​IMG]

    What ever is on special that day...this time it was sirloin roast...

    Anything that doesn't have much fat!

    I was thinking it looked sirloin-I agree that the cheapest and leanest at that time is best-good luck on your first BIG batch-I sale Alot so 12-16#s wet is a norm around here-and mine hardly see's over 110.

    I see you tied the meat to your racks. I use toothpicks to hang from the racks..... might just save you some time.
    Looks like some good eating though.... you got to love some jerky with a cold beer!

    Did you use a cure with it? Just curious.
  16. My hats off to you guys(and girls) that use a smoker to make jerky. My problem in smoking jerky it never turns out the same twice. I'll stick to my dehydrator.(old habits are hard to break).
