Purchased from the Rosenthal Estate in Montgomery, Alabama in 1989. Date unknown. My brothers love Jerky so I make this for them, I'm not a jerky fan, but they love this recipe. Makes nice gifts for their birthday and also at Christmas.



  1. Trim all fat from meat.
  2. Slice meat with the grain as thin as possible.
  3. Place the meat in cool brine and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Take meat from brine, rinse lightly and allow to drain on paper towels for 1 hour.
  5. Place meat strips on smoker racks and dry for 12 hours using your favorite wood (I always use Hickory).
  6. When strips are the dryness you like, cool and transfer to plastic bag for storage.
