For sweeter jerky baste with molasses or honey and water prior to drying.
Dry beef using your preferred technique. I use my Weber bullet smoker. I hang the beef from the rack using toothpicks. No water is added to the smokers bowl but the bowl is in place to deflect the heat. Smoke at 170°F for around 6 to 8 hours until firm but not overdone. This is an awesome recipe - enjoy!
