I use flank steak, partially freeze to make cutting easier. Slice with the grain 1/4" slices, rub with Hi-Mountain Jerky rub and marinate overnite.
Next I smoke with Hickory in my Bradley smoker for 2 hours.
After 2 hours of smoke I remove the jerky from the smoker and put in my dehydrator for 3 hours.
I like my jerky chewy, not crunchy. My friends are always begging me for jerky.
