So, I rubbed down my sliced and trimmed top round jerky and let it marinate overnight. I smoked it for 6 hours, the first 3 were with smoke. I pulled it from the smoker and tried a piece. Boy oh Boy was it horrid. It takes a lot for me to say I messed up, but I reallly messed this one up. I added too much pepper first of all, second of all I think i had smoke on it too long and finally, Since I didnt use any morton's tenderquick or any cure for that matter. I think it was all just totally wrong.
