    Hello to all. I'm a rookie when it comes to smoking but its a hobby i really enjoy. Thinking of trying my hand at jerky in the smoker but would like some input from more experienced people than myself. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum.  The search bar can be your best friend here.  Any questions or problems you have, simply search them.  There are many experts here and should you post a question someone will be along and answer it for you.  Good luck on your jerky making.

  3. I recommend this for a beginning recipe then go from there.

    3lb beef (thinly sliced)
    1tsp salt
    1tsp cure No 1
    1tsp onion powder
    1tsp garlic powder
    1tsp ground black pepper
    1/4 cup soy sauce (recommend Kikkoman)
    1/3 Worcestershire

    Soak 24 hrs turning a few times.

    I place on skewers and put in the smoker at 100*F until dry. (All day)

    Go easy on the smoke - maybe one chunk - then if you want more on the next batch add one more, etc, until you get it where you and yours like it.

    There are a bazillion other recipes - this one is very basic.

    Welcome, from southern Ohio, to the best forum on the internet if you are looking to learn how to BBQ/smoke/brine/cure/inject. Well you get the picture if you can do it to something you put on a plate to eat then someone here has probably done it then smoked it.

    Bama BBQ has you covered on the jerky ! Just keep it simple to start with then change up the flavor to suit your taste after you gain some experience !

    Always remember the only dumb question is the one you don’t ask!!
    Keep Smokin!!!
