MEAT: Prime Bottom Round

2 Tablespoons kosher salt
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon onion powder
Make the marinade. In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients for the marinade. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture has reduced by half. You should have just over a cup of marinade. Chill the marinade completely.
Marinate the beef. Transfer the sliced beef to a gallon sized zip top bag and pour in the marinade. refrigerate for 8-12 hours, or overnight.
Preheat your smoker or oven to approximately 170 degrees F.
Remove the meat from the marinade and dry each strip thoroughly by laying on paper towels or patting dry. Transfer the strips to the wire rack and smoke/cook for 2-3 hours depending on the thickness of your slices, Check often after the first hour to be sure your jerky is drying evenly.
keep rotating the beef jerky every 30 min to even out the cook.
