I have a few questions. How long do you normally smoke your jerky and at what temp. Do you apply smoke the whole time. The reason I am asking is that I cannot seem to get my jerky the same color across the piece. In other words the center is an ugly brown while other parts have a nice glaze and color. The color is on the outside of the strips that I am referring to. I hang my strips using the a Masterbuilt smoker.
