Barb,
You CAN freeze jerky, but like BBQ Mikey sez, it doesnt last long enough to worry about doing that.
If it is properly dried, it will stay good out on the counter for a week or so. I store mine in the frig in zipper bags with a paper towel to absorb any moisture.

Brisket has too much fat in it to make good jerky.

I buy bottom round or arm roasts when they are on sale. I freeze them for about an hour, then slice them a quarter inch thick across the grain. Cheapest and leanest cuts are best.

I marinate them overnight in plastic bags in a mixture of soy sauce, worchestershire (?) sauce and teriyaki sauce.

If you are in the States, I buy spices for my "Slim Jim's" (hamburger) from NESCO. I buy the Original for my SO and the hot and spicy for me.

It will last much much longer than a week. The purpose of making jerky is to preserve the meat. It will last for months and months if stored in the right container. You don't want to keep it in a zip lock bag for long as that will hold moisture close to the meat, but if you put it in a container where the jerky has room around it then it will last a lot longer.

There is no need to freeze it Barb as the point of jerky is to preserve it anyway.
