First attempt at Jerky on the Egg.
About 3 1/2 lbs. of Top Round sliced at 1/4". Ended up with about 1 1/2 lbs. after shrinkage. I used the DigiQ set to 165. Worked great. Marinated for about a day. Started taking jerky off the top rack after about 3 hours. Stuff on the bottom took a total of 6 hours. Next time I'll rotate the racks throughout the cook as we all know it is hotter at the top. Overall it turned out really good.

Thanks for looking.

    Tasty looking jerky. And nice raised grid setup. Often we forget that the best solutions are the simplest.
  • Looks good I've been wanting to try some never knew the best meat to use and what marinade did you use?
  • Looks really good. Been dying to try to make some myself, just can't seem to find the time lately.
