Beef Jerky Meat

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I've been buying London Broil for my beef jerky from the local supermarket. As it seems the leanest and easiest to cut into the strips I want (i don't like thin strips, I like ones about 5" long by maybe 2" wide, something I can grab onto).

 

Any better options? I'm paying like $15 for 2lbs of meat. So when I make 4lbs in my WSM in the end my jerky is costing me about $40 after spices (worchester is expensive, $5 and I use the entire bottle).

 

I saw flank steak but it didn't look like it'd hold up as I cut it... and the price was ABOUT the same...

Look at a top or bottom round or eye of round.

Happy smoken.

That sounds like overkill with the worshirer sauce.  I use about a 3rd of a bottle, and a 3rd of a bottle of soy sauce with a dash of liquid smoke to 3lbs of beef or venison with added spices.  How long do you marinade?

Eye of round has always been my back-up when I didn't have any venison.

Well they were small bottles. I use 2 cups of that and 1 cup of soy. I marinade for about 24 hours.

 

I went to Costco today picked up 2 20oz bottles for only $6.99 so that was a good buy, came home with 4 bottles, along with some choice top round... they dont sell a lot of prime there but choice should be fine for jerky
