Apple Beef Jerky

Apple Beef Jerky
1 TBLS Salt
1 TBLS Honey
2 tsp White Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
½ tsp Insta Cure
½ tsp Cayenne
½ tsp Coriander
½ tsp Phillips seafood seasoning
½ tsp chili powder
2TBLS Worcestershire sauce
1 TBLS Soy
¾ Cup Apple Juice
2 Cups Cold Water

Combine all ing….mixing well and pour over cut meat and let sit overnight…

This recipe is based on the jerky recipe in Mastering the Craft of Smoking Food by Warren R Anderson…I was intrigued by the Apple Juice and then played with some of the other ing…to what I like. It smelled good mixing it up…


I've been playing with this recipe and have come up with this revision I like much better...
5 pounds Lean beef sliced with the grain
5 tablespoons McCromick Seasoned Salt
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon granulated onion
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon Essence of Emril or Cajun Seasoning
1 teaspoon insta cure 1
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon chipotle pepper
1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons honey
4 cups Cold Water
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 cups apple juice

Intsa cure1....most recipes call for #1.....#2 is typically used for the dry cured stuff like roni and some salami and procitto (sp)..#2 works like a time realse cold medicine...

Most of the jerky is done, some of the thicker pieces need more time the thinner pieces took 6 hrs and I used one pan of hickory saw dust…I don‘t think I would use more than that…overall I’m really happy with the way the jerky came out and how it tastes…this was the first time I tried this recipe and for my taste in jerky it was very good.(I don’t care for a lot of the soy taste in jerky) The flavor and sweetness were right on it also wasn't to salty just the right amount IMHO …it was a tad bit spicy for the boys but not overly so…it wasn’t hot enough for me by any means.. next time I’ll do to batches and add more cayenne to my batch.. It must have been good….cuz as soon as I was pulling it off of the racks the boys were eating it…I think I’m going to have to make more….Soon.... I had some issues with hot spots in the lectric and I needed to rotate and move the racks around some....I might try hanging the jery next time or give it a whirl in the WSM
