Beef Jerky on the BBQ

This is very fun, but takes about 1 day to finish. I always love cooking anything on the charcoal grill, though this can be done on a Weber smoky MT., a gas grill, or even in the oven (but the oven doesn't give a smoky taste). it is a very tasty snack.

Step 1: Ingredients and supplies

1. 1 Tablespoon onion powder
2. 1 Tablespoon garlic powder(or some fresh garlic if you wish)
3. 1 1/2 Cups soy sauce
4. 1 1/2 Cups Worcestershire sauce
5. 3 Pounds of bottom or top round beef roast

6. 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes

1. Grill, Smoker, or Oven.
2. Charcoal( if using charcoal grill)
3. Bowl
4. Spoon
5. Tongs
6. Lighter fluid if needed to light charcoal

Step 3: Time to cook

Cook on indirect heat if possible at no more then 150 degrees Fahrenheit or 66 degrees Celsius.
Cook for 4-6 hours. The more you cook the more crunchy it is, the less you cook the more chewy it is. Add soaked wood chips to get more smoke (on gas grills get a smoker box, in a oven you cant smoke it).
that looks relly good

put some jaga vipers (worlds hottest pepper) in it to give a mild spice to it

by soaked wood chips you mean soaked in water?
surely that would be steam not smoke
wet wood = smoke dry wood= fire Soak your wood chips for at LEAST 1/2 hour, if not they dry out rather quickly...burn up....and add more heat to the fire.
water helps it to not burn

Always use a chimney for starting your coals if you are going to use charcoal. (my preference. IMO, and others.) Or else wait a long time to ensure that all of the coals are grey before cooking if using lighter fluid. (Better yet, no lighter fluid! It tastes horrible!) I second the slow and low. Park the coals on one side, and slow cook on the other. Also, add a heavy aluminum foil boat under the cooking side to help prevent flare-ups. Nice write up!

thanks for the info. i was going to use a chimney for it but they were sold out!
No worries. Sometimes you gotta do. Like I said, nice write up. I've done jerky with a smoker, oven, and a food drier. I like your method better! What I like about the chimney is I can get more coals going without interrupting the cooking.

I get what your talking about, but you only need like 6 coals to keep it a 140 degrees.
Good deal! I agree with your plan.
