Hickory smoked Jack Daniels & Chipotle Beef Jerky
Howdy folks...

Im making some Beef jerky as im writing this.

Cut up some beef sirloin and marinated it for 36 hours in a mix of Worcestershiresauce, soy sauce, Tabasco, jack Daniels, Honey, Chipotle, Texasbbqrub, salt, pepper and hungarian Paprika.

Dried it this morning and used an inverted rib rack to hang it on.

Meanwhile i prepared the WSM.
Lined up some coconut briquettes, added hickory, lit one end with a small propane burner and set the bbq-guru to 140 F using the foil trick

Its holding that temperature for more than 3 hours now rock solid and the neighbours enjoy some hickory smoke in the morning. :mrgreen:

More pics to follow as soon as its done.

I already know that its not gonna last more than 30 minutes once its done.
Next week im gonna buy a whole beef loin roast (9-10 pounds) and use some of that for the next batch.

looks awesome be careful you might draw a crowd when they smell the smoke

Alrighty, its done and very tasty. The Jack Daniels does fine with honey and hickory, and the heat from various sources makes for a nice slow afterburn.

That looks great. I'm due to make some jerky. I might add some JD to my mix. Dunno why I've never thought of that.

Hanging on the racks like that, do you break the pieces up afterwards or do just store a bunch of U shaped jerky?

Did you cure the meat first? Or just marinate it?

LOL... it DID look great bro... I love making jerky. I have gone to using the Hi Mountain cures instead of mixing up my own marinade, but I may try a batch with the Jack.
