Sale on London Broil for 2.79 a #, so I bought  a little over 10 pounds .I trimmed it up and lost 1 pound

 

The trim goes to the fox at work who loves snacks


Into the manual jerky slicer it goes for nice even cuts

 

Same recipe I always use and have posted on SMF previously.Here are the goodies dry and mixed.

 

Into the brine for a 24 hour stay with multiple stirrings .Removed and then air dried (ended up with nine trays) for an hour before putting in the smoker for a two hour smoke with hickory chips at 165*

 

 Removed when at the right texture after about 5-6 hours with a yield of 4.5 pounds of excellent munchies!

I have several LB in the freezer waiting to become jerky. May have to get them out and into my brine.

Point!

B. TY ,the jerky is good and it takes longer to clean the slicer (5 minutes) than it takes to slice up 10# of steak!

Very nice!

I, too, love that jerky slicer gadget.  Would've saved me a lot of work on the last batch I made!

I also like your fox!  Very cool to have one hanging around close-in.

And you made a good score on that London Broil at that price, too.

4.5# seems like a lot of jerky.  But it's surprising how quickly it goes away, isn't it?  :)
