Some people really like the smoke flavor! I'm not one of them, I do like it a little though. There are some really good smoker people here too that can teach you how to smoke your jerky.

I kind of used this method again.

I made some under marinated (half the normal amount) ground beef jerky--spread on mesh and scored into uniform one inch strips.
The liquid smoke wasn't very strong, I was very disappointed in the smokiness of it.
The texture of it was perfect but it needed more flavor. I also wanted it to have a shiny glaze and for it to be a little sweeter.

After it was done I put it in a large zip lock bag and soaked it with western dressing and smoky barbeque dressing in the refrigerator for 2 days.
I re-dehydrated it until it was dry and glazed. It turned out great!

Agreed. 5 shakes (small drops) goes a long way in a jerky marinade. I couldnt imagine using a whole bottle unless it was a 20lb batch of jerky!

I agree as well. I use about a cap-full for a batch of jerky.A whole bottle would taste horrible I would think.
