Everyone loves thos recipe! I prefer thin sliced (1/4inch) eye of round. Makes for some great jerky! 180f for 2 hours and then 2 hours at 160..... i have a digital electric.

Juicy and full of flavor in every bite

We don't have a large smoker so cut the recipe in 1/2. our butcher recommended London broil as that is what he uses for jerky so that is what he cut for us. Since there was no temp in the recipe...

Real easy to make, I just used a dehydrator and it came out great
