    I used my Thai marinade found here:

    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/233270/thai-jerky

    To make some pork loin jerky. Just a small batch as I wanted to make sure that the fish sauce wouldn't overpower the meat.

    Well all I can say is this stuff is great. In fact if I didn't tell you it was pork, you wouldn't even know.

    It was hit today, so hot I could've smoked without heat!

    So to beat the heat I took my boys spelunking. We have several great caves to explore very close to home.

    That sure looks tasty.  [​IMG]

    Did you use a cure on this batch?  If so did you add it to the marinade, or was it a dry cure?

    Yes I added cure #1 to the mix. Put everything in the vacuum tumbler and let it marinade for 48 hours then smoked. I used Apple pellets in the AmazeN expando tube.

    Thanks for the comeback Case.  If you don't mind one more question;  Did you figure your amount of cure by meat weight or was it a given amount for the marinade?

    Hey Case,

    I'm not a big jerky fan, but yours looks pretty darn good.

    I like Thai seasoning, so maybe this would be a good one to try for my first time.

    The caves look awesome, that must have been a fun trip!

  11. Didn't find any snakes in the caves?

    We would find rattlesnakes warming in the sun, in the cave openings, when I used to live in Idaho(many, many moons ago). Those kept us from going into too many of the lava tubes/caves and exploring. The old silver mines, on the other hand... [​IMG]

    Jerky looks sweet!!! Nice snack!!!

    Thank you Al it is tasty!

    Yep this was a fun trip. We like caving on hot days. Good way to cool off.

    Thank you!

    Nope no snakes this trip. It is always a concern when tromping around in the desert. Not much of a concern in the caves themselves. It was 40°f average just inside the mouth this trip. Probably closer to 38° inside. It was 95° above ground!

    Depends on what I can get at the time. Currently I'm
    Using Viet Hu'o'ng

    Soy sauce usually Kikomon.
