Jerky Questions

I am starting to think about making some Jerky in the egg and I have some Jerky newbie questions:

1. I have some of the Hi-Mountain packs for jerky and they have both a rub and a cure packet in them. Do you typically cure it then put the rub on and cook or is the cure unnecessary?

2. Any secrets to keeping the fire low? I planned on just putting a handful of lump prelim in my chimney and dumping it on the unlit lump but any concerns with the bad gasses on the meat? Also, I don't have a DigiQ or Stoker so will be doing this manually.

3. I was going to use flank steak and was also thinking about doing some turkey. Any suggestions or thoughts on the turkey?

Thanks in advance for all your help.
