Beef Jerky

Does anyone have a good recipe for smoking beef jerky? I had made some in the past using a heavily soy sauce based recipe that ended up tasting a lot too much like soy sauce! Has anyone tried it with Yoshida's sauce or some kind of Terriyaki seasoning instead?

Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Send me a private message and I'll send you a large book of Jerky recipes I got off the net. Some good info and a ton of recipes. This should help.

I make quite a bit of jerky, I've been averaging 8 to 10 pounds a week for a couple of months now. I do use a heavily soy sauce based recipe but with a couple of twists. Like you said it tends to be alittle on the salty side, but instead of cutting it with water try adding dark brown sugar to the recipe. It tends to hide the salty taste very nicely. I also smoke it heavily with a mix hickory and Kingsford. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can do about anything with it. It lends itself good to anything from sweet to regular to hot jerky. Slightly sweet jerky is a huge hit around my area and it seems like I'm the only guy making it. Keeps me busy.

What cut of meat do you use, and how thick do you cut it to make jerky? I'd like to do a batch of it soon, it sounds really good.

Hey Pyre,

When I did jerky I used round steak (not tenderized) and cut the strips about 3/8" thick and as long as I could make them.

Here's what they looked like after 3 hours at 190 deg.
