    Labor Day Beef Jerky

    Smoked up some beef jerky yesterday. Two flavors, one was sweet and spicy (kind of an Asian influenced flavor) and the other was done with a mixture of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, etc. Marinated for about a day and a half, then into the smoker for about 4 hours at an average temp of 150. Ended up being around 5.5 pounds of jerky in all. Turned out great!

      Looks great. I'm trying to empty out all the beef left from the side we got last year, before this year's side is ready. Sent home a bunch with the kids this weekend, now I need to look at what's left and see if I have something to make jerky out of.

              It takes me 12 - 14 hours in my tabletop dehydrator. I'll bet my go to recipe is a lot like your second mentioned. I add a 1/4C liquid smoke, because I haven't used my grill for this - but will now.

                Sorry for the long delay on the recipe. The regular steak flavored, I will have to sit down and actually do measurements. I do it by taste. Here's the recipe I use for sweet and spicy (I have modified it o suit my tase over time). This recipe is for one pound of meat, so if you do more than that, you will have to double, triple, etc.

                2 hugely heaping tbsp brown sugar
                1 tbsp lemon juice
                1 tsp dijon mustard
                1 tbsp honey plus a little extra. *I usually let the honey keep flowing while I pour out the tablespoon.
                1/4 cup soy sauce
                2 tsp rice vinegar
                1 tsp ground ginger
                2 tsp red pepper flakes *I use Fiesta Brand. Their spices are usually way fresher than any other brand.
                1/2 tsp garlic powder *Again, Fiesta Brand.
                1 tsp black pepper freshly ground
                1/4 tsp sesame oil *I have also substituted sunflower/Olive Oil, and noticed absolutely no difference. It's such a small amount.
                1/4 cup water cold

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill
              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
