This jerky tastes just like the store bought kind. If you like those kinds, you'll enjoy this very much. Use Hickory smoked flavoring instead, if you'd like.

This was my first attempt at jerky and the family really liked it. I would suggest using garlic powder though instead of minced garlic. The minced leaves little clumps of garlic on your meat.

This was very good - I smoked the meat in a real smoker which added even more flavor - YUM!!!

Made this exactly as written (I believe if you are going to rate something you must make it that way). Great flavor, however I like peppered jerky, next time I will add lots of pepper. First to the marinade, then again after I put it on the racks. All in all, a great starter to model to your own taste.
