Since I got the Traeger, the last three meats I've cooked came out perfect and delicious, so I decided to try my next mission,,,,jerky. :grin:

Stopped at the butcher to get 5 pounds of top round steaks sliced at 1/4 inch thick. Used Cabela's Teriyaki Jerky Seasoning and added some red pepper flakes for some extra spice, since I don't not want to try the homemade seasonings yet, and marinated overnight. I laid them out on a Grilla Grill jerky rack and its in the process of smoking at the moment. I added some black pepper to the batch on the top rack for testing. Starting time at 7 am and at 180 degrees. Let's see how it comes out later today.

Mark,
It should be delicious. If I was closer, I'd be over to "help you".
Friends don't let friends smoke jerky alone.

LOL JD. Thanks for the nice words. I have noticed that there are a few hotspots which cooked the jerky faster which is the outside pieces and the top rack which I already took out after 2.7 hours. The others needs about 30 to 45 mins I think, especially the middle rack since the temps in between are lower than the outsides. I removed the ones already done and tasted them, oh boy. Delicious. Of course I'll invite you guys over for any BBQ or smoked meats if we all lived closer. :grin:

The slower pieces between the racks was done after 3.25 hours. FYI

Looks great Mark! I've made jerky but in the oven.
This past spring, we did a wild turkey breast and it turned out pretty good. I'm certain that it would be amazing on an actual smoker.

We used some of that carne asada that comes pre-marinated from Costco and made some smoked jerky with it. Not a fiscally-sensible exercise but man is it good!

Mark is crushing it the Traeger. I am telling you folks, if you haven't tried a pellet smoker, you don't know what you're missing. Mike turned me onto one many years ago and I have never been let down. It straight up makes fantastic food, everytime.

I make quite a bit of jerky on my treager. I’ve found the best results from smoking for 2-3 hours and then transitioning to a dehydrator. I don’t use a cure on mine so getting it nice and dry helps with shelf life. I dry mine until it cracks instead of bends, and usually slice it nice and thin.

This is the best recipe I have come across. It sounds funny but it is excellent.

Dr Pepper jalapeño jerky

Marinade-

2 cups DrPepper
3 jalapeños sliced w/seeds
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
2 tablespoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

Mix marinade ingredients in medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then simmer until it has reduced by 40%-50%. Let cool.

Cut meat into 1/4" thick slices and place in gallon ziplock bag and pour marinade in and massage to cover meat with marinade. Leave in fridge over night.

Pat jerky down and smoke for 2-3 hours. Then either switch to a food dehydrator or finish in smoker until meat cracks instead of bends.

That sounds darn good Bear. I’ll be checking that out as well.
