On to my 3rd project with my MES 30". Came across this jerky recipe:
I enjoy a nice refreshing Coca-Cola every now and then, so, I thought what could be better than an opportunity to smoke, let alone smoke venison, let alone smoke venison marinated with Coke! Obviously I substituted the called for sirloin tip roasts. I had a beautiful back strap in the freezer and thought, I've had it this long, let's slice and smoke. Cut against the grain and followed recipe to a T, with the exception of the Krazy Salt. I used Penzey's BBQ3000, which is a close equal and I think a little sweeter which I enjoy. Set the smoker to go at 180° and started some hickory chips. The meat was in the smoker for 3:23. The end result was a great tasting jerky that I'm proud to say was truly field to table with minimal middle man intervention. Unfortunately, I'm not quite at the point where I process my own harvest, but, someday maybe.
Enjoy the recipe, highly recommend.
