This is the recipe we have been using for the last 10-15 years and everyone seems to love it. So I figured I would share it with you guys. 1 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce 1 tbsp salt 1 tbsp red pepper 1/2 cup liquid smoke 1 1/2 tbsp liquid crab boil 2 tbsp hot & spicy creole seasoning 1 tbsp hot sauce 3-4 lbs thin sliced meat put all ingredients in pot and bring to a boil. turn off and add meat. let sit for about 30 minutes or so. take meat out of mixture and place in dehydrator. keep an eye on it until its ready. This is an excellent recipe. I adjusted it a little from the original because it was way too spicy for me(im from louisiana). so you may still need to adjust the spicyness a little more to your liking, but this is a great place to start and probably won't need much adjustment, if any.
