Want to try and make some. My pellet grill low temp is 150. What's the best cut, how thin to slice it, and smoke for how long at 150 or whatever temp?

Check out my post in this link below. Any cut from the round, top, bottom or eye of round make good jerky. I cooked mine at 180 degrees for about 2 hours and sliced the meat about 1/4 inch. Hope this helps.

We muscle out the hams and don't cut nothing from there.

I've used beef eye of round for the past 15 years. I slice it with the grain, 1/4" thick on a meat slicer. I clean the eye of rounds, cut them in 1/2 then freeze them. Let them slack and slice while semi-frozen. Wet brine over night, air dry over night, cold smoke, then dehydrate in a convection oven.

Rear quarter muscles are great, 1/4” thick at 165 until your happy.

Someone beat me to both of my answers:
1) eye of round for domestic beef
2) any of the main rear quarter muscles for venison

I want to add that if you use venison, the backstrap make great jerky and it the easiest to process/slice into jerky meat.

True and true, the only time I use the straps for jerky is when I have plenty of straps. Which doesn’t look like that’s gonna happen again anytime soon lol. They do make the best jerky.

Red, try AC Legg’s Old Plantation Black Pepper Jerky Cure, and add more pepper if you’d like. It’s good. If you like Sriracha Sauce, mix some of that in as well. I love that stuff.
