This is my first attempt so I used the cure & spice packet from the jerky kit.What's ingredients did you use?
What is the reason for vacumme marinating?
I am like you on this one.. I like mine smoked a little too. Hell, I think "smoked" should be it's own food group! Might as well add sour cream too! I even put sour cream on my scrambled eggs/w cheese and some salsa. Hmm, time to get somethin to eat.My favorite jerky recipie is to get a " meat rub" and sprinkle it on the jerky strips, let it sit for a few hours in the fridge and then smoke in my little chief for about an hour. Then I dehydrate it.
It is amazingly simple and much better than the simple soy/ teriyaki wet brines. If you do wet brines I suggest a bit of liquid smoke in the brine.
