    Just did another batch of jerky in the Christmas dehydrator with a few changes. Added 1/2 can of chipotle chilies to the marinade for extra heat and more red pepper. Also sliced the london broil across the grain for a softer chew (gf's request). Read about the meat breaking up if you cut this way but it's holding together very well. Heat level is just about right.[​IMG]

    Looks great.  Can you spill with the rest of the details?  What else in the marinade?  Did you smoke or just dehydrate?

    Thanks Dude...marinade was 2/3 cup whoosy sauce, 2/3 cup soy sauce, 1 fat tbl of honey, 2 tsp bp, 2 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp Wrights liquid smoke, 2 tsp red pepper flakes and the added 1/2 small can of Chipoltes whizzed up with the marinade in a food processor to liquify them. Also sliced the meat a little thinner this time, instead of the 1/4 inch I did at first. Did not smoke first, just dehydrated, and took about 2 hours. Only have a ECB with some mods for now so trying to get a handle on controlling temps etc. Presently have my first chuckie in the ECB now...hopefully it will be edible tonight around 6 or it's gonna be a pizza night. Little worried over it and might have to crack that first beer soon to calm down
