This is how I make beef jerky from a beef roast! (This will also work for venison, elk, buffalo, maybe even beaver!) Just stick with red meat and let me know how it turns out!

Ingredients: Beef roast
Pineapple juice
Brown sugar
Soy sauce
onion powder
garlic powder

Optional ingredients: black pepper
red pepper flakes
cayenne pepper

and anything else you feel will enhance your jerky-eating experience!
