10.5 lbs. of bottom round roast yielded 9 lbs. of jerky meat. After smoking for about 2 hours I was left with 5 lbs. of smoked jerky. I used Cabela`s Hickory jerky seasoning.
I got the roast @ Brookshire`s for 35.00. They were BOGO . The seasoning cost about 5 bucks and I used about 3 bucks worth of pellets in the smoker.
43.00 cost comes out to 8.60 per lb.
