JERKY JERKY JERKY

Post by steinyboys » Sat Sep 12, 2015 6:59 pm

All I see is pulled pork Brisket chicken, only one thread in 8 pages had bit about Jerky, I love the stuff! but not really sure how to go about it, and am sick of all those American U tube clips, I am sure there is some Aussies now how to cook some great JERKY! Please tell me how and we can all benefit from sound advice on some delicious jerky on our plate

Pretty simple once you decide whether you are a thick or thin type of Jerky person. I use round, top or bottom, just about any non marbled, non striated cut will do, I am never sure if our cuts translate to yours, Pick your marinade and seasoning, leave it in that about 48 hours, set your unit up to go as low as possible, mine will get down to about 150°F (65°C), and at that temperature it can take 3-6 hours, depending on thickness and the consistency you like.

I used to be a huge fan of the thin, very dry sheet, have altered my preference in the last few years and have become drawn to the thicker strip!...Good luck!

Wow Bently Thats what I am talking about love it so hungry looking at that spread, and yes I think a little bit thicker would be nice not sure how low my kettle will go? but am on my way to butcher as we speak, I have herd that flank steak is good option, just not sure how tender it will be? the beef cuts I am familiar with are silverside top side round and rump so are you referring to the round in your cook? The rump might work well?

If you want nice soft jerky, cut against the grain. If you want to give your jaws a workout, cut with the grain. I also prefer thick cut.

My starting recipe is usually soy sauce, maple syrup and finely diced ginger and chilli. I just mix it up to taste then marinate the meat in it in the refrigerator overnight then on smoker on lowest temp.

It gets eaten so fast in my house I don't bother using a cure, but if you're going to keep it for a long time or are smoking it when the weather is warm you might want to add a little just to be safe.

Sorry about time difference! I think, now that you mention it what you call Silverside is what we call round, and yes, those pieces were Top Round (rear legs of the steer)...tenderness should not be an issue if you marinade enough...

Hi Bently can only find time for a long and slow cook over the weekend, but Have just bought the meat and will marinate tomorrow overnight, and do a slow cook on Saturday. I am going to try for about 5 hours at 150F does that sound right? will do some pics hope I nail it first time Still waiting for my PROQ Excell Elite to arrive so will be doing this one in my Hark gas smoker as the kettle wont have the room, having said that will do some in the kettle as a comparison over the gaser :lol: :lol: :lol: :!: :!: :!:

Gas smokers run hot...it's just the way they are! On ebay you can get an adjustable regulator, that'll help, but careful the flame doesn't go out.

I do them at 180 on the Memphis Pro, so no issues Buddy! Just make sure to check consistency of your meat starting at about 3 hours!
