I used a recipe similar to Alton Brown's jerky recipe:http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_29310,00.html
As for the food, you will need:
~2 pounds red meat (I used elk and antelope meat since that is what I had on hand, but any super-lean meat will do)
~2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
~2/3 cup soy sauce
~1 teaspoon liquid smoke (since I used real smoke this batch didn't have any liquid smoke)
~1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (two of those little packets that come with pizza is the perfect amount)
~1 tablespoon honey
Equipment you will need:
~Barbecue smoker, like this one:http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Barbecue-Smoker-for-9/
(or you can just use an oven)
~Wood chips and/or charcoal to make the smoke. I recommend hardwood like apple or hickory.
~A sharp knife and cutting board or a mandolin slicer.
