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)
6. Lighter fluid if needed to light charcoal
Step 2: Prepare
Mix together the 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1 tablespoon garlic powder(or some fresh garlic if you wish), 1 1/2 cups soy sauce, and 1 1/2cups Worcestershire sauce to make your marinade. Cut your roast 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick, then cut each piece with the grain 1/4 to 1/8 inches thick and put into marinade. Put marinade and cut up meat into refrigerator for 4- 6 hours or over night.
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).
Step 4: All Done
well your finally done. Now you can enjoy some good home made beef jerky.
