little help with jerky in an electric smoker

I have done lots of jerky on a dehydrator. I would like a good smoky flavor so I was thinking about trying it on my Bradley Original smoker. Would the principal be much the same as the post I have read doing on an MES? Thanks for the help

I would put it in smoker for 1 - 1 1/2hrs no smoke at about 110. then

Add smoke and raise temp 10* each hr till about 170.

after it has been at 170 start checking jerkey by bending it, if you bend it and see white fibours it is done, no white keep smoking.

God luck and let us know how it comes out.

You may also want to do some checking in the Jerky thread also, it is down below this one

Ditto.  I'd get to 170 a little faster, but yes, get the fibers when you bend it.  I hate underdone jerky.
