Texas BBQ Beef Jerky Recipe


  • 4 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoons of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 3 drops liquid smoke
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Texas BBQ Rub
  • 2 pounds of beef (or any meat type)


  1. Freeze meat for 30 minutes but no more than that and slice into 1/8″ thick strips.
  2. Combine ingredients sprinkling on a good helping of Texas BBQ Rub, marinate strips of meat, cover and refrigerate over night.
  3. Take out and wipe excess marinade off.
  4. Let’s go ahead and use a smoker for this recipe. Have your wood chips bought ahead of time and set your smoker to the lowest temp. or around 200 keeping in mind you want to dry the meat, not cook it. You can either lay out your strips over the racks or stick toothpicks through one end and hang them, just depends on what type of smoker you have. Go ahead and smoke your meat for about 3-9 hours, checking periodically. You may want to cut that time short if you’re satisfied with your meat or have your temperature set higher, or you may want to dehydrate your strips a little longer than that, it’s your preference! Enjoy!
