So another of our cooking adventures this past weekend was our tried and true recipe for smoked beef jerky! This is “THE BEST” beef jerky you will ever eat! Joe calls it beef candy! LoL! Everyone in our family and all our friends just love it when he makes this and there is never enough, no matter how much we make. We used a 5 Lb beef roast and Joe cut it into strips while I made the marinade.
2 cups water
2 cups brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 cups soy sauce
1/3 cup worcestershire sauce
2 oz hot sauce
a pinch of garlic salt
Once you get your meat all cut up, put it in a sealed container or ziplock bags and let set in marinade for 8 to 24 hours. We let ours set at least 24 hours.
Once the meat has set in the marinade for the 8 to 24 hours you place on your smoker racks and let the smoker do the rest of the job for you. Smoke your meat for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours at about 225 degrees.
When we take it off the smoker we put it in a container (like tupperware) with a lid that seals tightly and let it cool off with the lid sealed and it will get a glossy, sticky coating on it that just makes it even better!
When it’s all done this is your finished product! Enjoy!!!!!!
