I'm new here and couldn't find my thread..
which is why I haven't been active on my own thread.
Anyway, I've been doing the wet marinade method so far but I see there's a case to be made for dry so this weekend I'll give that a try. You don't know till you try it yourself I guess.
Jerky seems to be one of those things you have to keep on experimenting with until you arrive at our own signature result although I suspect I'll keep tweaking things ad infinitum.
