This batch I'm using High Mountain spices.hoping it turns out good.
I used half of an eye round and a flank steak.
My daughter is waiting for me to try jerky. I am watching for beef to be on sale but lately it has only been pork and the wife says she is tired of pork. I am beginning to wonder about her. Did you use any cure? I'll be watching to see how it turns out.
My daughters gave me a smoker for fathers day last year. My daughters were 10 and 7 at the time so really, I bought myself a smoker and had the wife wrap it with them. lol Either way, I was trying it out for the first time and I was also marinating some jerky at the same time. I decide to put half on the dehydrator and half on the smoker. Long story short. I now sell beef jerky ay my local farmers market because the smoked one turned out so well. I love smoked jerky!
Google jerky marinades on line. you'll find some great ideas. I don't like store bought mixes. I like to make it from scratch.
