    Hi All,
    I am Zipdugan from California and I am new to this fourm but not new to smoking. I have owned and burned out 3 Brinkman all in ones. I then moved up slightly to a Masterbuilt 7 in one Stainless Steel. The Masterbuilt just won't die...yet. My latest aquisition is a Cookshack 50. I have only had it for about 2 weeks and I have done 18 hour pork butt and 14 hour brisket that were really good. I slightly modified my Cookshack so that it has a stove pipe with damper so I can vent off some of the moisture. I now get really crispy chicken skin and nice bark on ribs, butts and brisket. This week I am going to make jerky on the Cookshack. Got the Tenderquick and I am looking at some receipes. Any help with meat curing for jerky would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome Zipdugan. I looked really hard at those cookshacks before I got my MES, might end up with one yet hehe. As far as jerky goes I just recently got some of the Hi Mountain jerky cure and that stuff makes the best jerky I've had yet. Guess I'll be using my tenderquick for brines only now.

    Welcome to the forum Zipdugan.
    I've done a lot of canadian bacon using tenderquick and sugar as a dry rub if you are interested.

    The jerky is great. I cured for about 18 hours with tenderquick and spices then pat dried with paper towel. I then split into three piles and put more black pepper on 1/3, red pepper flakes on 1/3 and chipotle pepper on the last third. I think the chipotle came out the best but its all good.
