Me and a couple of friends just bought a bradley electric smoker. Made some jerky and it just doesn't taste that great. Have made in a dehydrater with same marinate and tastes good. Anyone have any recipes for jerky or your favorite things to smoke. Also would like to know what smoke flavors, and temps and time(prob. be a little different due to smoker differences but can approximate time and temp.) We used mesquite flavor and started smoking right off the bat and i don't know if that was the problem or not. Someone thought we should have only put the smoke to it about the last 20 minutes or so??? We have hickory as well but didn't use them this batch any help would be appreciated!!!
