I wanted a jerky with a totally different taste. This also is much less salty than most recipes. Store in the refrigerator.

Smoke

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
lean beef such as round steak
1/2 c
prepared orange beef sauce, i use panda express brand
1 c
orange juice
3/4 tsp
prague salt #1
1 tsp
garlic salt
grated zest from 1 orange

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Slice the beef into 1/4 inch slices, it'll be easier if you put it in the freezer for about 45 minutes before slicing
2
Mix everything together in a gallon zip top bag, mix well and refrigerate over night.
3
Preheat smoker to 170 degrees.
4
Drain the meat in a colander but do not rinse.
5
Either spread out directly on the racks for drying or use wooden skewers to hang the slices. Place in the smoker.
6
If using wood pellets, get them started and add to the smoker. If using chips, add them now too. Use something light, I use a mix of mostly apple with a little hickory.
7
Smoke for about 2 hours then continue drying in the smoker or remove to a dehydrator. I use the smoker. Keep the temp at 170 for a total of 3 hours then lower to 150 until jerky is dehydrated to your liking. Mine takes about 4 hours total.
