Incredible.

Elk Jerky

1/2 cup coarse sea salt
1/2 cup brown sugar (loose, not packed)
2 Tbsp Morton TenderQuick or other curing salt
2 heaping Tbsp garlic flakes
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
5 smoked poblano chiles, chopped (seeds removed)
1/2 cup diced fresh onion
1 heaping Tbsp coarsely crushed black peppercorns
3 quarts water

The above is what I used for 5 pounds of meat.

Soak the meat in the brine for 6-9 hours depending on how strong you want the flavor. Remove from the brine, spread out on racks and let dry in the refrigerator for a couple hours or more.

Sprinkle with black pepper, arrange on skewers or racks, and smoke (I used mesquite wood) at around 120˚ for 4-8 hours depending on how thick you sliced it.
