I usually make ground beef jerky and last week I tried whole muscle jerky and I have a question. After soaking the meat in the marinade how does everyone deal with all the excess marinade on the meat strips? Last time I hung the meat in my smoker it was dripping like crazy and took a long time to even start drying it out. Thanks in advance for any tips or advice. I have another batch soaking right know and I would like to avoid all the mess. Thanks!!
