Only quantities of ingredients are changed; recipe Directions below will not reflect those changes.


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

    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.
