    What are your opinions...
    If marinade my jerky for 3days is there any benefit from doing it that long or is one day long enough or is a couple hrs long enough? Can cut jerky meat only hold so much marinade? What do you guys think?

    I have found that marinating it around 24 hours works the best for my taste. a few hours isn't enough and more than that can be a little over bearing. It would also depend on how much salt or what ingredients where in it as well I would think as far as how strong it would be.

    2 cups of soy sauce and 2cups of water is all the liquid the rest is just powder ingredients.. I think it is a pretty strong marinade for 5-7lbs of meat
