Hope I am not offending any hardcore jerky makers by making something a little different, but here is my latest smoke. I marinated the jerky in Vinegar Whole Garlic cloves Whole Black Peppercorns Paprika Cayenne Pepper Fresh Dill Dill Weed TQ Before putting the jerky in the smoker, I coated all the jerky with more fresh dill. The verdict is that the jerky is a little tart from the vinegar, but I still really love the taste. The combination definitely gives the jerky quite a different taste. I think I am going to try it again, but leave the vinegar out. The reason for leaving the vinegar out next time is that it hid a lot of the dill flavor that I was really trying for. I love dill so I think the more dill flavor that comes through, the better.
