The 1st 2 times, my Terriyaki Jerky came out just o'k. Just didn't pop. So it's back to basics. Just got Rytek's bible so I plan on starting there. Now here is where I need your help. I like a slightly smokey flavor in my Jerky; so I was thinking about doing a cold smoke with my soldering iron/tin can setup before loading it into the dehydrator. Has anyone tried this or have an opinion about this. I don't want to use liquid smoke (too many chemicals).
