I'm trying my hand at jerky tonight for the first time. The recipe is simple enough: - 2 lbs sirloin round. I had the butcher cut it into 1/4" strips which saved me a lot of hassle. - 1 cup strong coffee. I used a short Pikes Place Roast from Starbucks. - 1 cup Coke - 1/2 cup soy sauce - 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce - 2 tablespoons hot sauce - 1 tablespoon Tender Quick It's been marinating overnight. Plan is to throw it on the Traeger this afternoon for 4 - 5 hours on smoke. I'm hoping for the best! Any thoughts on what kind of wood pellets I should use for the best flavor? I have hickory, apple, pecan, and oak at my disposal. I'm thinking the hickory would probably give it the best smoky flavor.
