Easy Smoked Beef Jerky

Making smoked beef jerky is easier than you might think, and it's a great way to enjoy the flavor of smoked meat without having to cook an entire brisket or roast. All you need is a Memphis Wood Fire Grill, some beef, and a few simple ingredients. The key to success is in the marinade, which should contain a high-quality smoked paprika for that authentic smoked flavor. Once you've prepared your marinade, simply soak the beef in it for at least four hours, then grill it over high heat until it's nicely charred on the outside and cooked to your liking on the inside. Cut the beef into thin strips, let it cool, and enjoy!
