hey there everybody i am having some trouble. so i had my brinkman electric smoker for half a year now and i finally decided to try and make beef jerky. i always made jerky in a dehydrator and wanted to try it on the smoker. so i went to smoke the jerky and when it was done it was kinda crispy... i never used the water pan for the jerky that came with the smoker so could that be it? or did i do too much smoke? i usually would dehydrate my jerky for 4 hours and it really did not work out like that on the smoker. and this is the brinkman electric smoker i have been talking about: http://www.brinkmann.net/products/details.aspx?item=810-7080-K. if anybody has any answers please comment that would be awsome!
