Mornin,[p]6:05 am in Chicago. Just got done putting on NB's 2001 brisket.[p]The recipe for the hot and sweet jerky is below:[p][p]1.5 c soy sauce
3/4 c worcestershire sauce
3/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c steak sauce
2 big cloves garlic (garlic press)
1 tbs. garlic powder
1 tbs. onion powder
1/2 c honey
10 pcs. pickled ginger
>>>>Here comes the hot stuff>>>>
3 tbs. szechuan sauce (spicy)
1/3 c thai chili garlic paste
1/3 c spicy hot kung pau sauce
1/3 c hoisin sauce
4 tbs. homemade serano pepper flakes
4 tbs. fresh ground pepper[p]I cut the brisket thicker this time and what a difference that makes.
Let humpty idle at 140/150 for 3 hours then let it get to 200 for the remainder of the time. Total cooking time was only 4.5 hours.[p]I like hot stuff so if you try this recipe be prepared for a little zing. I think it could be hotter.[p]I also marinated it for 2 full days.[p]Enjoy![p]Mick

    You said you cut the brisket thicker. How thick is..thicker? The only problem I've had when I've tried jerky a little thicker is it doesn't ever get that really dry, chewy texture. Particularly shorter cooking times like you have here. Can you fill me in?[p]Thanks.[p]MShark

    MickeyT.,[p]Do you cut it with or against the grain?[p]Mark

    They can be chewy or harder. Personal preference prevails. Usually after 3 hours you can sample and take off when they reach your optimums. I just finished making 10-12 lbs of it.

    Turkey,[p]I like to eat my jerky in strips kinda like string cheese, so I cut it with the grain.[p]Mick

    Molly,[p]I guess the jerkey was cut about 3/16" instead of 1/8". I know it doesn't sound like much but it really is the best jerky I've cooked. I took a bunch with me this morning to share with my fishin' buddies and they really enjoyed it.[p]Mick[p]
