I haven't made jerky in probably 20 years and just picked up a meat slicer and decided to put it to use. I used a beef sirloin roast, cut the meat with the grain, just under 1/4" then cut it into 1" wide strips. Put it into the wet marinade for 48 hrs. After removing from the marinade I sprinkled lightly with Emeril's seasoning and some cayenne pepper.

I used bamboo skewers to hang the strips from the cooking rack and cooked them at 150* with hickory pellets for around 6:45. I was worried that the smoke would be too much but it gave it a great smokey flavor that did not overpower it.

It turned out awesome and everyone that has tried it has said it is the best jerky they have ever had. I kinda threw the recipe together and figured I would need to refine it along the way, but I think it is pretty good as is. Below is the marinade recipe I used for +/-10 lbs. of meat.

3 cups soy sauce
1 cup Worcester sauce
1 cup water
2T onion powder
2T garlic powder
2T hot chilli powder
2T Sriracha sauce
1T red pepper flake
1T black pepper
2teaspoons pink salt
