Beef jerky

My husband has been wanting to make beef jerky for a while now. Any ideas for what the best cut would be, and if anyone has a recipe they like that would be helpful too! Also, no dehydrator, only some really hot dry space (boiler room) that could theoretically work well.

Thanks!

      Thanks, will show this to him and see if it's acceptable :)

    2. Using the oven on the lowest setting with the door propped open works very well. I've made jerky this way dozens of times.

        Agree with the oven on the lowest setting - I have used chuck with some fat marbling - I use a simple marinade of soy and brown sugar -

          Soy Vey also works nicely (but of course I happen to think it works well with almost everything).

                Trader Joe's used to stock it at prices that were way below grocery stores and they now sell their own branded version. Costco sells the original in larger bottles at a great price.

                  Soyvey is great - along with their their other marinade/sauce options -
