Smokey Taco Beef Jerky. I'm in love with this smoked beef jerky recipe. Once you've soaked up the extra moisture, it's time to add the slices to your smoker. A jerky rack is helpful if you are running low on space inside your smoker.
There is no adding liquid smoke, you let the wood of your choice infuse an intense flavor into your jerky. This way of making jerky is as close to how it was done hundreds of years ago. Plus you get to sit outside, drink beer, and stare at a smoking box all day. You can have Smokey Taco Beef Jerky using 5 ingredients and 5 steps. Here is how you cook that.

Great recipe for Smokey Taco Beef Jerky. This is an easy way to make great tasting beef jerky. I never use the seasoning packets that come in the box of taco shells, I find them too salty. Use a good instant-read meat thermometer to check the temp.
Smokey Taco Beef Jerky instructions
- Grind 2 lbs of lean beef, I used tenderloin tips. Any lean cut will work or pre ground is fine too..
- Add all ingredients together and let marinate overnight..
- Stuff into a jerky gun and squeeze out onto the dehydrator racks. I used a wide tip, it has about half an inch opening. I've made this with a 1/4 or so size similar to a Slim Jim size and just didn't get the tenderness I wanted..
- Dehydrate according to the instructions for your dehydrator or use the oven at the lowest temperature. Mine took about 28-30 hrs..
- Bag, tag and devour!.
