Number of Servings:


  1. 1 pounds - beef stir-fry strips Or choice of beef, cut into 1/4-inch thick strips
  2. 1/2 cups - soy sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons - Worcestershire sauce
  4. 2 tablespoons - honey
  5. 1/2 teaspoons - red pepper flakes or a lot more if you like it spicy
  6. 2 teaspoons - onion powder
  7. 2 teaspoons - garlic powder
  8. 1 teaspoons - black pepper


If meat isn't pre-sliced, cut it into strips and remove fat as you slice. Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a zip-lock bag and marinate the meat in the fridge overnight.

Preheat smoker to 165 degrees F. Add your favorite wood chips (do NOT add water to the water pan - we want the meat to dry out).

Lay meat strips flat on smoker racks, leaving a little space between strips of meat (I bring the racks inside before pre-heating smoker so it's easier to lay the meat out on them and then carry to the smoker).

Smoke for 3 to 4 hours (or a little more, as needed, until meat is firm). To test if the jerky is done, lightly shake a piece between your fingers - if it's floppy or limp, return it to the smoker and check it again later.
