    Got an urge for jerky, and the temp outside makes it perfect for it.
    Started with 5 1/2 lbs of Choice Eye of round:


    Trimmed it up:


    Sliced it at about 5/16" on my new slicer (which I forgot to take any pics of.) Marinated it for about 36 hrs in:
    2 1/2 oz Tender Quick
    1/4 cup Kosher
    1/4 c Sugar
    1/4 c Honey
    cayenne
    chillli pepper
    gran garlic
    water to cover.

    A quick rinse and fry test said we were ready.

    Peppered up and on the racks:



    Currently on the BSNP @125.

    I'll have to wait I guess cause yours sure looks alot better then mine. I did something wrong but it was super dried out on the smoker. I didn't know anything about the tender quick either.

    Well here's the finished jerky. It took pretty much 12 hrs @125. Tastes great. I ended up with just about 2 tubs full.

    Well, going off of how long the bag that I brought to work lasted, I would say that this batch o jerky was a success.

    Like looks real nice. I like it when it is still plyable.

    Looks great. Sounds like it was a success as they didn't last long at work.
