Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 3 pounds round steak
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup beer, IPA
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup worcestershire
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp curing salt, optional

Instructions
 

  • Trim any excess fat off of your meat, and then slice thin (1/4 - 1/8 inch thick slices). This is easier if the meat is still slightly frozen
  • Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Put the meat in a zip lock, and pour the marinade into the bag and then seal. Let the meat marinate for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours
  • Remove the meat from the marinade and blot dry with a paper towel. Place the meat on your smoker and let it smoke at 150 to 180 degrees for 2 hours.
  • Check on the meat at 2 hours. Some of the pieces may be done; you can tell if you pick up a piece and when you shake it, it doesn't bend. 
  • Place the jerky on a cooling rack until it's come down to room temp, and then store in an airtight container in your fridge.
