Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I was anxious to try smoking beef jerky on the egg and really wanted to fit it in this weekend even though we have many other plans for the egg yesterday and today. Typically I would slice and marinate the beef overnight but didn't prep well enough so did a short marinade in soy sauce, dried in paper towels and rubbed in fresh ground pepper.

Since I'm waiting for my jerky hanger to arrive

I hung the strips over the grate and stacked up some cooling racks I use for baking.

Fire went out after a few hours, setting me back. The top sides were cooking but the underside wasn't getting done, probably because there wasn't enough airflow due to the pieces being folded over. i had to rearrange pieces. This problem should go away with the new hanging device on the way. After about 4 hours, I had to get the jalapeño poppers on the egg so was planning to keep the jerky warm in the oven. By the time the poppers were done and dinner of crab cakes and squash were done, most of the jerky was done.

Turned our pretty good but next time, I'd try to marinate longer and plan enough time to finish in the egg. Luckily they got some nice smoke taste from the first few hours on the egg!
