I'm trying beef jerky this week and have the meat sliced very thin.....I use an electric slicer and the meat was mostly frozen so it came out really nice. Anyway I'm more into the product right now since I'm very new and not so much into the process. My question is, if I'm buying my teriyaki marinade in the store instead of trying to make it what is a good brand to try? I looked online and there are lots of brands out there. Oh and which flavor of smoke? I'm thinking a mix of hickory and apple or cherry. ???
