Made some ground beef jerky. Instead of red pepper flakes, I found McCormick gourmet chipotle crushed pepper. It is great! Used 88/12 ground beef as it was on sale Smoked it in the MES 30 150° for 90 minutes using Pitmaster's blend pellets. Finished drying it in the oven on warm with the door proppped open a bit. Turned out really good! Used recipe shared by [USER=]@forloveofsmoke[/USER] Pepper Jerky Seasoning and Cure: For 3 lbs 85/15 ground beef or sliced beef: 1 Tbls medium grind black pepper 1 Tbls fine ground white pepper 1 Tbls paprika 1 Tbls crushed red pepper flakes ½ Tbls chili powder ½ Tbls garlic powder 3 Tbls tender quick cure * ¾ cup potable water (purified, filtered or spring for best results and taste) if using sliced beef All done!!!!
