I googled Beef Jerky Recipies and found some interesting ones. Most are for the oven, but the ingredients would be similar one would think.

Hope it helps..

Try Wal Mart. Used to be near the sporting goods but haven't bought any in a while. I use their mixes and have had good results with my dehydrator. Its the same spices they sell with the jerky shooter. Grump

It is not often that I can be of any help, but I can on this one. I make all my own jerky. I buy beef rump roast when they are on sale. I then slice the meat about 1/4 to 3/8 inches thick. I then take cookie sheets, big platters, etc. and cover them with paper towels to soak up any liquids,lay the slices out on on them not touching. I then mix about 2/3 teriayke and 1/3 Wocestershire sauce. I paint the meat with the mixture, then salt an pepper. I use coarse ground pepper. Then turn the meat over and do the same to the other side. When finished, put the trays in the fridge overnight. The fridge will help draw some of the liquid out. My smoker is made our of a propane tank with a firebox on the end. I build a small fire with charcoal and put pieces of hickory on the fire. I try not to let the fire get too hot. About 125 or so. Leave on the smoker for about 6 hours. Have to watch the fire and keep it going. Check meat and take it off before it gets hard. If put in a zip lock bag, it will hold moisture and have a tendency to mold in places. A paper sack will continue to dry it out. Might still mold. I just cut the mold away and eat the rest. Just like meat in a smokehouse. It will take a bit of trial and error to get it to where you like it. This is what I came up with. It makes good jerky. I have a batch to make to take to my deer lease for opening day of squirrel season this coming Monday.

Hope this helps.

I have not bought jerky in years. I just tried different things, and this is what I came up with. You might experiment with seasonings. etc. but this is good. To me. Plus, I pour the smoke to it, cause I like it. I have used pecan, mesquite, oak, but keep coming back to hickory.
