Choices for making jerky?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been using brisket but with the prices skyrocketing on it "she who must be obeyed" said enough of that!
Now, I can pick good steaks, I can find choice hamburger and I can cook it all, but when I get to the beef section and look for something for jerky, I'm like a deer in the headlights! Totally lost!
I've read London broil, but none around here! So what cuts should I be looking for? What works and what doesn't for jerky? My son and I eat the stuff like candy so I'd like to do a large batch, 8lbs or so, once or twice a month so any guidance and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I have started making whole meat beef jerky from Eye of Round Steak and so far very pleased with the results. Also slicing it cross grain for a more tender chew.


Last 5 pound whole eye of round was $3.99 from a small meat shop in my area.

I agree eye of round is a good call. That's what I've been using lately too.
