Ok, so here's the basic recipe. The cheapest roast you can find, round roast works good, chuck roast is ok too, but you have to cut all of the fat out of it. Cut it into 1/4 (or so) inch strips. I like to cut it across the grain, which i know isn't really the traditional way to make jerky, but that's how I like it. per pound of meat;
1tsp sea salt
1tsp corn sugar
1/4 tsp each of garlic, onion, paprika, cumin, dried and ground hot banana pepper, jalapeno, mirasol pepper, cayenne pepper, scotch bonnet pepper and black pepper. and a splash of worstershire. Rub all of the spices into the strips of meat really well, and then vacuum seal it, or wrap it up tight in plastic wrap for 24 hours. then put it on the smoker at 200* or so for about 1 1/2 hrs. That's the 5pepper jerky recipe. The only important thing is the salt and sugar though. Those have to be pretty much exact, to cure the jerky right. the rest of the spices can really be whatever you want, which is what makes it fun. Because really, unless you burn it, or season it with poop or something, it will turn out good.

Most of it gets given to friends, in exchange for a small cash donation. If I ate half of the jerky I cook, I would be500lbs and tooling around on one of those hoveround scooters!

Looks good thanks. I been threatening to make some jerky too. Now I am getting inspired to put the shoulder to the wheel so to speak. As soon as it quits raining. I am going to try a new strategy which involves an offset pit with the meat hung up in the upright and a fan blowing toward the firebox with an electric hot plate and wood chunks mounted on the inside. Reckon that will work?

I normally use Eye of the Round to make jerky. Yields the best results, being that it is very lean.

I once met a guy who hooked up a couple hairdryers to an old metal fridge, with a bathroom exhaust (fart fan), and added racks every 2 inches. It worked. food dehydrator works, oven at low temp works. I would try a few minutes in the microwave, and then a few more hanging in the toaster. 5 minute jerky!!
