Wanted to try my hand at making some Jerky in my Smokette. Read most of the post and it appears that you start with pieces that are about 1/4 inch thick. Told my wife to pick up a 3 pound round roast and ask the butcher to cut it for her. While some of the pieces are 1/4 inch, most are closer to 1/2 inch thick. Should I try to make Jerky with them or would I be better off using them for something else?
