My bro got me a Dehydrator for X-Mas... I want to break it in with Jerky... I just have some questions... I see a lot of recipes call for liquid smoke and boiling it in marinade type mixtures before putting it in the dehydrator... my question is this (and what i was hopping i could do)...
Can i marinate, than rub the meat, than smoke it, and finally put it in the dehydrator?
that is what i was planning on doing, but i am not sure how long i should smoke it for before i put it in the dehydrator... any help would be appreciated... if this technique is not good, than by all means let me know... i have never made my own jerky, but i do love jerky and i want to do it right... thanks!
