I decided to give jerky a try, so I ordered up some seasoning and cure from Hi Mountain Jerky. They offer a sampler box with several flavors to choose from. I used the original flavor for my first batch. I Bought a pound of lean flank steak and cut it into 1/4 inch strips, which yealded 16 pieces. After 24 hours in the refrigerator, I used some skewers to dangle the meat in the smoker. I had no idea how long to let the meat cook, but based on other people's posts, I figured 2-3 hours at 180 degrees would be about right. I took the first eight pieces out at 2.5 hours and took the other eight out after 3 hours. Both batches taste(d) great, but we agree that 2.5 hours was perfect. Chewy, tasty, and moist. If you haven't tried jerky, I can certainly recommend it. I'm already planning a trip to the grocery store to get more meat. I've read posts about bottom round being a good cut for jerky. I'll give it a try, but the flank turned out great. And what would this story be worth, without pictures?!
