Default Tutorial:Jerky the easy way(plus The Ugly Plywood Box Smoker)

I haven't see any mention of this here before and thought I would let you all follow along.I started making jerky with muscle meat but no matter how careful I was by the time it got to my mouth most of the spices would have fallen off.One day I bought some Jack Link's kippered beef sticks and noticed that there was spice inside the meat even though it looked like muscle meat.I wondered how I could do that at home with my jerky.Years later a friend turned me on to the jerky shooter.This is what I was looking for.Now for the pr0n.

Nice! What temp do you make your jerky? I assume it is a relatively cold smoke.

About 250 until the meat reaches 150.Then down to 100 to dry to the right texture.

That is cool. How do you probe the meat for temperature? Pretty thin bit there. :)

What's not visible is the "blob" that's left after all stuffing is complete that I use for checking the temp.

Do you cure it? Prolly not since you hot smoke it. Do you use a jerky mix? How well does it store(keep unrefrigerated)?

F_B that's a jerky gun.
