The bride wanted some beef jerky

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Seldom does she specify exactly what she wants, but she said I was to make it just like I did last time. Oops! Other than the cure, I seldom measure when making beef jerky.

I sliced up a 4 pound eye or round into round disks so the bite will be across the grain

Mixed up my marinade, added a shot of whiskey, measured my cure, and then dumped everything over into the vacuum tumbler.

After tumbling for an hour, I laid all of the pieces into the MES and set the temp at 130 to dry for a couple of hours.

After 2 hours of dry time, I added a mix of hickory and mesquite pellets and let the smoke go for around 3 hours. Dried overnight at 150 and she's now a happy girl! 4 pounds of raw resulted in just over 1.5 pounds of jerky.

I have some Thai jerky marinating and should smoke tomorrow.
