  • london broil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbs granulated garlic
  • cup honey


The meat

  • Slice the meat between ⅛ and ¼ inch thick with the grain or against.

The Marinade

  • In a large bowl, combine the all ingredents and whisk until evenly combined and dissolved.
  • Add the meat to the marinade and toss until all of the pieces are evenly coated. Cover with plastic wrap or transfer to a large ziplock bag or bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours or overnight.

Drying the meat

  • Very improtant to dry the meat before smoking. I use a few sheets of paper towel as seen in my video(see below)
  • The Smoke

Arrange the marinated meat on the wire racks in a single layer. smoke 160f, until the meat is dried out, 3 to 5 hours. To determine if the jerky is thoroughly dried out, take a piece out of the smoker and bend. It should bend but not rip.

  • Remove and let cool.
