We are invited to a BBQ on the 4th, and the host loves beef jerky. At 113 degrees in Oregon, it has been to hot to smoke. But, we had a little cooling and I decided to give it a go. I have not been happy with my marinade. I’ve been on a search for a richer, more savory taste. I ended up spreading out four little bowls and started mixing up little batches until I found one that worked. I am very happy with it! Instead of hanging the strips, I just laid them out on a mat. It works really well and saves a lot of effort. I made half normal, and half peppered.


I also made up a fresh batch of trail mix. The guys at the barber shop are really bugging me for more. Sooo good with a cold beer, or two.


Tomorrow I’ll do the smoked baked beans and CSR burnt ends. Have a great 4th! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
