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. Read More

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. Read More

I'm not quite sure how it tastes yet (I'll update as it's done) but the smell of it is heavenly. It was very easy to put together and now the hard part is waiting for it to cook! Update: Absolutely love it. Didn't change a thing and it's wonderful. The flavor is great but I wouldn't call it the "store bought" taste. Read More

Great recipe but I found the soy sauce salt overpowering. Next time I'll omit the sale cut down the soy & add in some hot sauce. Read More
