Default Homemade beef jerky recipes?

Saw an episode of Alton Browns 'Good Eats' where he made a fairly simple homemade recipe for beef jerky.

Looked great. I don't have a smokehouse though. I hear that you can sun dry it. As summer comes, I'd love to make a bunch of this for the winter.

Anyone else tried this?

This smoker looks great. I might buy this to make beef jerky and what not!

50 buks for a mini smoker. Im a single guy. This would work out perfect for me.

A single guy eating smoked beef jery and drinking homebrew.

If you happpen on the pickled egg thread, you may create a "situation" that will make you essentially undateable.

Use caution.

Haha!

I have pickled eggs in the fridge. I used the red beets technique!

I love that color. I don't generally like eggs. So this is the best way to eat them for me. And I hate pickles or pickle juice, , yuk.

Hehe! My girlfriend is still keeping in there!

But then again I live by myself. lol. Maybe thats why!

I haven't done it in awhile but homeade jerky is pretty damn easy. The Little Chief might work out fine for you, but I'd recommend the next size up (Big Chief). Check the prices at Walmart/K-mart before buying online.

One problem with the "Chief" smokers is they are electric and will suffer on a windy/cool day.. But you can cover them with a heavy carboard box that is a bit larger than the smoker and it will do OK. I have a gas smoker, a lot more efficient, but probably a bit more spendy as well.

The popeel type jerky makers work well, I've had a couple of them over the years. I haven't made any jerky in a while, not since I used to get plenty of free venison.
Quick note - check your stove/oven owner's book -- our stove has a feature where you can set the oven really low for dehydrating and also came with aspecial magnetic dealy to prop the door open slightly...

2 cups soy sauce, 2 cups worchestire, 1/2 bottle liquid smoke, tobasco to taste, red pepper to taste, black pepper to taste, liberal amounts of montreal steak seasoning. Marinate venison/beef over night, dry in your regular oven on the lowest setting with the door cracked for about 12 hours. Since your single, you won't have anybody bitching about the wonderful aroma from the oven.

I make jerky by getting some air conditioner paper filters and laying the meat in them. Then I strap the filters to a box fan and blow air over the meat for about 10 hours. Comes out perfect!! No need for leaving the oven on for hours at a time or for buying a dehydrator.

you can also do the jerkey in a H2O smoker and about halfway through let the water run out in the smoker... $50 at Home Depot.
