Just got a brand new electric smoker for my birthday and fathers day combined gift. I smoked some whole chickens last night which turned out amazing. I am wanting to make some beef jerky for an upcoming camping trip and need advice or instructions on how to do this.
First Question is what kind of beef is best to use. I have a butcher that I frequently buy meat from and can get just about any cut. What will be the best bang for my buck as not to break the bank?
Second question is there a wet marinade out there that I can just soak the meat in and pat dry with paper towels to place directly into the smoker without having to use any kind of cure?
And lastly what temperature do i set my smoker and for how long do i smoke the meat?
Thanks in advance for all your help and advice.
