Here is a recipe that came with my dehydrator, in the book that came with it.
3 Cups Soy Sauce
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Liquid Smoke
Some Hot Sauce or Crushed Hot Peppers or Cayenne Pepper dust can be added for heat.
Mix together, let stand for 5 minutes. Add 1 - 2 pounds of meat and let marinade for 3 hours or overnight in an airtight container. Drain, place on trays to dry.
DO NOT OVERLAP
I have made this recipe, used Hickory Liquid smoke, put the meat in a Ziplock bag, got all the air out and always let them sit overnight in the marinade. I then put them on my smoker and left them till they were done to the dryness I wanted, I rotated the trays every few hours, for even drying.
The meat I used was a 2 inch thick round roast, I cut it thin and used that. I sold a ton of meat done that way, I was doing 3 or 4 steaks each weekend and the Better half took it to her work. They loved it.
My Nieghbour wants me to make him some jerky, again to take to work. I told him to get the meat, we can use my slicer and make any type he wants, use either the Smoker I own or the dehydrator i own and he can sell it to his coworkers. I told him I will take 30% of the sale for turning whatever meat he gets to jerky. I am waiting for him, but I do not think this is going to go down till November.
