  1. Bought some Jerky cure from Bass Pro today and was wondering what is the best cut of beef for making Jerky. Thanks.

    There's not really a best...I just use a cheap cut like chuck...do a bit of trimming and slice away. Anything you have around will do.

    I use any cheap Lean meat, londen broil when on sale-u don't want to use a meat that has fat running through it-and is best to try and trim any fat out-it will ransid on u. good luck.

    I would second that, not much trim work involved.
     
  6. Thanks for all the replies. I guess there is no need to be that specific making Jerky. I will go to the local Publix to see what they have on sale. I will try to make some this weekend thanks again.

    I hope the best seasoning for jerky is the one you just bought. But there are alot out there you just have to start tring them and fine one. I don't have a clue but I'm sure there will be someone here soon.
     
  8. I found some nice looking London Broil on sale today for my first Jerky. Got some fishing to do tomorrow, smoking pork butt Saturday and Jerky Sunday. I will post a new Jerky thread on Sunday with my results. Thanks for the help!

    Just picked up some tonight at Costco. Pretty inexpensive and makes great meat for jerky!

    I use eye of round. It doesn't have alot of fat that needs to be trimmed off! Hang the Jerky by toothpicks and you can get alot more in the smoker.
