    Got another batch of jerky going in the GOSM tomorrow morning. I decided to go back to my original recipe while adding 1/3 cup of honey to the mix because I loved the flavor it brought to my last batch. I'm also trying the Kikkoman soy sauce as a lot of you seem to like it.

    Here's the bag of goodies and the ingredients.

    I just got my hands on some cherry wood logs that have been drying for 2 years. Inspected them and found no mold so i chopped them up.

    Nice!
    I need to get myself over to the San Joaquin valley and curse around all the orchards over there and see what I can find. One pickup truck load with a nice variety should do me for a while.

    I apologize for not finishing up on the post...Mother's day got a bit busy and beers were consumed...[​IMG].
    I was only able to take a picture of the finished product with my phone, so sorry for the quality.
    This is probably my best tasting beef jerky so far, i'm quite proud of it. The honey was a nice touch and i think it helped a lot of the other spices stick to the meat better. I brought a bag over to my girlfriend's place for her dad and he seemed enjoy it.
