Thank you all for putting up with me,
I got 5 pounds of angus beef yesterday, cut it up today, end result was 4.5 pounds and its marinating in the fridge,
my old scale didn't work, told me i only had 2 pounds of meat, so i went and got me a new digital scale, this one works,,lol
Ive changed it out of the bowl and put it in a ziplock bag, with no air
I went the simple route for my 1st time and did the recipe Holly2015 posted for me
supposed to be 40 deg here on friday so ill get my outside fireplace roaring

I think I'm jealous of you having an outdoor fireplace ;)

Let us know how it turns out. I never do beef jerky, I use pork loin, economical for me, so I can experiment more.

I just did my first batch of jerky on Saturday. Marinated a top round roast overnight. Brine was a cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of worchestshire sauce, onion powder, brown sugar, pepper, and a tsp of curing salt. Eveyone raved about it. I have a Masterbuilt 30" electric smoker and had it set to 165.

I used to try to make jerky in the oven and also in the smoker...but a forced air dehydrator was so much less work, so that's the way I do it 99% of the time now.

I also get my marinade packets from www.OwensBBQ.com. I used to make my own marinades, but the sheer convenience of their delicious marinades, at very cost competitive prices, keeps me coming back to Owens BBQ for more.

Here is my tutorial...for forced air dehydrator jerky

Looks good to me!
And a nice fire, while doing your Jerky sounds great!
Dad (wife's Dad) likes sitting out in his backyard in his open air patio/BBQ spot burning wood.

Same here using Ziploc bags as marinading chambers. But I got a Vacuum marinading chamber after using one at my Daughter's up in Washington. I still let it go overnight though.

Enjoy your fire and makin Jerky. Here's hoping it comes out to your liking!
