    I see a thermometer probe there. What was the final internal temp? Are you going to let the jerky hang longer?

    final temp was around 160 @ 225, next next time i will shoot for around 150 @ 225, the dales seasoning is strong so just a few hours to marinade.

    I just let them hang until cooled,some of it didnt make that long

    I am not trying to step on your toes, but you cooked that venison rather than making jerky out of it. When making jerky, one might cold smoke it for 4 hours, but then it requires drying for several days if hung outside or less than that it you use a dehydrator. If you would like some help, there are several here including myself who will be glad to offer some assistance.
     
  6. I agree. I never go above 120 degrees when making jerky.

    Jerky or not, it still looks pretty darn good.
