Classic Beef jerky made on a smoker

Love beef jerky but hate the price?  Make some at home!  They're so much cheaper and tastier when not loaded with chemicals and preservatives!

Step 1: Choosing a meat

Picture of Choosing a meat
In all honesty, you could make jerky out of any type of meat.  Rabbit, chicken, tuna, beef, whatever. 

But for this instructables, we'll be using steak.  Flank steak, exactly.  Other good popular options are brisket, london broil, and round.   Basically, the cheap stuff.

Great thing… 
And this is a true smoker : the meat is not cooked really, but it is smoked slowly.
I loved it when as a child I saw those 2 big hams hanging inside the huge fireplace of the farm of my parents' friend. They slowly smoked about 2 months wrapped in a cloth (to avoid flies and other uninvited form of life) when the fire was not lit.
After the first slices the meat was so tender …

Right you should have had them hanging, I would say not only because you could have avoided to turn the but also because they would have caught the smoke more evenly … 

Love it : lucky guys !…
