I use 1.5 teaspoon of Morton® Tender Quick® to each 1lb of ground or thin sliced meat 1/4". Morton® Tender Quick® suggests 1 tablespoon per/lb for thin sliced meat 1/2", but their curing process is for a dry cure and for 1 hour which is different than what is outlined here. This is your decision!

Here is my recipe for Beef Jerky: This is for 5 to 6 pounds of sliced meat

 

5 - 6 pounds sliced beef

3 cups Shasta cola

1/2 cup Soy Sauce

1/2 cup Worcester sauce

2 tbs course grnd black pepper

2 tbsp Onion Powder

2 tbs Granulated Garlic powder

2 tsp hot sauce

1/2 cup liquid smoke

5 heaping Tbls Morton Tender Quick.

 

Make sure marinade covers the sliced meat,

I let soak for 24 hrs, with a stir a couple times just to get all surfaces of the meat in contact with the marinade

 

On smoke day, I lay the strips out on my racks, sprinkle with black pepper and garlic powder and put in the preheated smoker at roughly 120 degrees.

after the meat has dried to the touch, I then add smoke and leave in the smoker at no to exceed 140 degrees untill the degree of dryness is achieved.

I bend, squeeze, try tearing off a piece, and a taste test to determine when it is done.

 

For me, the Jerky tatse way better after it has been out of the smoker for several hours to the next day, then the flavor really comes out.

Wow, there are some good recipes here.  I'm going to have to try every one.  I haven't made jerky before but yesterday I decided to give it a try.

I'll let you know how it turns out, so here is the recipe:

 

1 cup Kikkoman Teriyaki sauce

1 cup Kikkoman soy sauce

1 cup Yoshida's sauce

1 tsp Cayenne pepper

1.5 Tbs ginger fresh ground

1.5 Tbs onion powder

6 cloves garlic smashed and chopped

4 lbs. side skirt sliced into 1/2" x 1/4" strips

 

I plan on smoking with hickory pellets at 160 degrees.  I don't use tender quick as think it makes every thing taste like ham. I tried it on turkey legs once and

they were hamey.
