    Cool Beef Jerky the SmokinTex way

    I love beef jerky almost as much as brisket, I was done paying $20-$40 a pound for it...

    I have made 2 batches over the pasted 2 weeks. my photos below are from both batches.

    I purchased 3#'s of thinly sliced round steak from my local meat market.
    I used a commercial jerky blend and marinated it for 24 hours in a 24 cup Rubbermaid Lock-it container in my refrigerator turning over every 4-6 hours.

    I then laid the meat on my seafood racks in my SmokinTex 1400

    I then added (2) chunks of hickory and smoked the meat at 150-160 for (2) hours, I then emptied the chip box and lowered the temp to about 130 and then placed my dehydrator fan over the vent holes and came back in about 5-7 hours...

    I then remove the finished jerky and placed it into a plastic Lock & Lock container.

    Does anyone know if we can soak the meat in a regular teriyaki sauce and then put it in to smoke? I was wondering if maybe it had to much salt in the sauce. The family is dying to make jerky so I thought I'd check into the process.

    I heard soy sauce is better to use then teriyaki sauce. Thought I'd pass it on.

    Mix the two and add some onion powder & garlic powder... A little apple juice won't hurt either...
