Looking for a simple recipe for making hamburger jerky and do I need to add any cures to it?

If you put the hamburger jerky in your smoker, Yes you will need cure.
Easy GM Jerky
5 lbs xtra lean GB 90/10
3 T non iodized salt
1 level t cure 1
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder
2 t cayenne
2 t black pepper
2 t curry powder
1/2 cup non fat powder milk (used as a binder and flavor but not needed if you dont want)
1-2 T cold water
Mix in with meat.
For a better marrried flavor put mix in plastic bowl, cover and fridge overnight. Extrude with jerky gun onto racks, smoke or dehydrate.
I like to dehydrate GB jerky. If you do this and want smoke just add 1 t real liquid smoke.
