Found a new way to make Jerky ... About 3 weeks ago I tried the Curlys Beef bacon mix or whatever you call a prepackaged spice and cure and ground my beef to lean so it didn't make a great bacon. What to do? Well I had 7 lbs of these nice neat slices of beef about 2.5 iches wide and 9 inches long ... Hmmm ... JERKY! I whipped up a quick terriaki marinade with a bit of canjun spice and dipped them in and smoked them. The BEST jerky I ever ate! I'm making another batch today and I'll smoke it tomorrow night - sometimes mistakes are good!
