Make This At Camp! Homemade Beef Jerky

This is so delicious that you'll never want to eat store bought beef jerky again!

Ingredients: 1kg of beef

beef (1 lump of thigh meat)
1 kg
1 clove
Flavoring Ingredients:
35 g
25 g
Coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon
Chili pepper powder
1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
180 ml
Red wine
180 ml


1. Thinly slice the onion and garlic. Combine the flavoring ingredients well.
2. Remove any sinews or blood from the beef and slice into 5mm pieces. Lightly dry off the moisture with a paper towel.
3. Place all of the ingredients into a zipper-type plastic bag and place in the refrigerator overnight.
4. Remove the meat and wipe dry with paper towels. Place in the shadows in a dehydration net where the wind can blow on them to dry for 5 hours.
5. Once the moisture from the surface has dried up, line up on a smoker. Turn the heat to 60°C and heat for 1 hour to dry them out some more.
6. Add woodchips (I recommend cherry hickory branches) and smoke at 60°C-80°C for about 1-1 1/2 hours.
7. Line them up again in the dehydration net and let them dry out naturally for 1 hour.
8. They will be even more dried out and delicious after 2-3 days. We enjoyed it with some smoked cheese, shrimp, and scallops. Beer never tasted so good with these snacks!

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to smoke some foods while camping, so I easily prepared some beef jerky!
