I used my Thai marinade found here:

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/233270/thai-jerky

To make some pork loin jerky. Just a small batch as I wanted to make sure that the fish sauce wouldn't overpower the meat.

Well all I can say is this stuff is great. In fact if I didn't tell you it was pork, you wouldn't even know.





It was hit today, so hot I could've smoked without heat!

So to beat the heat I took my boys spelunking. We have several great caves to explore very close to home.








Smoke away!!!

That sure looks tasty. 


Did you use a cure on this batch?  If so did you add it to the marinade, or was it a dry cure?

Yes I added cure #1 to the mix. Put everything in the vacuum tumbler and let it marinade for 48 hours then smoked. I used Apple pellets in the AmazeN expando tube.

Thanks for the comeback Case.  If you don't mind one more question;  Did you figure your amount of cure by meat weight or was it a given amount for the marinade?

Hey Case,

I'm not a big jerky fan, but yours looks pretty darn good.

I like Thai seasoning, so maybe this would be a good one to try for my first time.

The caves look awesome, that must have been a fun trip!

Thank you Al it is tasty!

Yep this was a fun trip. We like caving on hot days. Good way to cool off.

Didn't find any snakes in the caves?

We would find rattlesnakes warming in the sun, in the cave openings, when I used to live in Idaho(many, many moons ago). Those kept us from going into too many of the lava tubes/caves and exploring. The old silver mines, on the other hand... 


Jerky looks sweet!!! Nice snack!!!
Thank you!

Nope no snakes this trip. It is always a concern when tromping around in the desert. Not much of a concern in the caves themselves. It was 40°f average just inside the mouth this trip. Probably closer to 38° inside. It was 95° above ground!
