Cold smoked Jerky & Trout
 
Hi Everyone. I've been meaning to test out my hand at cold smoking so I decided to do some beef jerky and some cold smoked cured trout.

The only lean beef I had in the freezer was some tenderloin. I though that would do nicely! I sliced into 1/4" strips & seasoned overnight with
soy,
stock,
Mortons TQ,
sugar,
onion,
garlic,
black pepper &
Chili flakes

then I dried it a bit & threw it on the smoker with cold smoke. This was the first time making my own jerky and it wont be the last. Although I think next time I am going to try a recipe without the soy to compare and slice into thicker strips and dry longer (due to the bigger strips)

For the Trout I cured for 48 hours in a simple rub with kosher salt, brown sugar, cure #1 & a bit of my seafood rub and then covered with dill and vacuum-packed. I cold smoked it for about 4 hours with almond. AMAZING!

That jerky looks outstanding.:thumb: I do all my jerky at 1/4, I didn't like it as much cut thicker.
