This recipe for Smoked Beef Jerky has a little heat, a little sweet, and a little smoke.
After you have marinaded your meat for 24 hours you are ready to smoke your meat. You can watch my video above on how to hang the meat in the smoker and tips and tricks for smoking the meat. I used Hickory wood chips for my smoke. I think the flavor profile was great and marries well with the other flavors. You could also use Apple chips. I would steer away from Mesquite unless you mix it with hickory or Applewood. It tends to be harsh or stronger and would not match well with the Pineapple juice that really sets this marinade off. Pecan might also be a great choice to use. This is something you can experiment with.
