I have been trying to make a lot of things with my smoker but I have not done Jerky yet and I love the taste of it but I hate the cost of it in stores. Most of the time I just get original flavor. What I am wondering what is the best cut to start off with first for my first time making this? I think I am going to start with beef. So far from what I have read. I want to slice the meat about 3/8" thick. When I read for temps I am not sure what I want to cook it up to. I like my jerky a little chewie. This will be my first time so I would like to try and keep the cost down on the meat incase I screw up. Thanks for your help.
