Its easy to make... I just do a "little of this, little of that" recipe.
The important igrediants
Soy based... about a cup of soy sauce for 4-6 breast halvs.
Tablespoon of liquid smoke
Tablespoon of garlic
Tablespoon of black pepper
Teaspoon of cheyene pepper
Tablespoon of brown sugar.
..... from there I'll put whatever I get my hands on in. Beer, season salt, pepper sauce, whiskey, cummin, chili powder, worchester, ketchup, mustard, honey.. whatever sounds good at the time.
The best way to cook it is in a smoker, but if you don't have one, your oven will work. Line the bottom of your oven with foil, and skewer one end of the jerky strips on a skewer so that they dangle, then set the skewers on the over rack so that the jerky hangs down... bake on the lowest setting for 4-8 hours (depending on how low your oven goes). If you don't want to wait that long, you can bump the heat up, but long and slow is the way to go. If you cook it fast, it'll get crispy.
