    Yeah let your meat air out

  25. Lawrence Conn

    instead of the cayenne you should have added chipotle and that would add spice and smokeyness

  26. ElectricPulse100

    You sound like you could be related to Seth Rogan.

  27. Extreme Food Reviews

    Perfect. We were looking for a good jerky marinade base to make some spicier jerky. I think you nailed it for us. Thank you kindly, good sir.

  50. Razvan Lemnaru


  51. Vashti

    I’m in the uk and I used bavette, and to make it low carb I used stevia drops and Diet Coke in the marinade instead of honey…. It turned out THE BEST. I cooked it for three hours at the lowest setting on my oven, 50. Any higher, it turns to charcoal. Thank you for this recipe! You’re awesome at dunking your beef 😀

  52. Caleb Morse

    Just threw my first batch in the oven, hoping it turns out great!

    I’d be happy with this and only this every Father’s Day D:

  65. Nathan Warshawsky

    I made it and turned out good

  66. Scott Page USMC

    I worked for Lockheed and Rolls-Royce at Stennis Space Center, and we used to make beef jerky at our turbofan test facility on nightshift. We took a 1.5’×1.5’×3′ card board space blanket (satellites) box, with a metal coffee can on two bricks. Cut the top and bottom of the box off and place it over the coffee can. The can is set on top of the bricks. Cut a small door at the bottom of the box to provide access to the coffee can. Push 316 steel welding rods through the meat and across the box top. Light charcoal in the coffee can and use whatever soaked wood chips you want. In about 4-8 hours you’ll have the best nightshift snack you can think of. You can use any cardboard box, but the thicker the better for insulation. We had space blanket boxes, so that’s what we used. Very industrial. Cheers!

    Edit: Forgot to mention to cap the top of the box, if you want extra smoky jerky.

  67. CrystalCritter

    First off, this video is excellent and very personable and friendly. I am going to try this recipe but not for a dude, for ME. I’m female and even though you mentioned men, my hubby isn’t really into beef jerky. I find it is a great go to low carb snack (obviously depending on the recipe). Nice idea on the Mason jar as well. I have nothing against hipsters. Jerky in the store costs like 6, 7 or 8+ dollars for a few ounces which is nuts. This method looks pretty spiffy. Thanks for sharing and for an excellent quality video.

  68. Joanna Herrick

  107. Jeffrey Cordova

    I substituted the soy sauce for teriyaki sauce, and the beef jerky came out amazing. I LOVE it. Typing this out while enjoying a big-ol’ hunk of spicy teriyaki jerky.

    seth rogen is teaching me how to make beef jerky lmao

  116. Derek Gardin

    Actually if you look at the ingredients on the soy and the Worcestershire sauce plus the plethora of spices you used you probably have all those ingredients and more.

  117. Serjo777

    2:00 Why are parts of the beef brown while the rest is nice and red?

  141. VitaminG311

    Hey chef John, could I use an air fryer to make jerky?

  142. Gabi Trandafir

    Is it possible to use pork meat too? Or just cow meat works for this?

  143. Tardis 412

    Why does every sentence sound like a question? Any family guy fans see the episode where Stewie makes fun of someone for this? It’s all I could think about while watching this

  144. Corporate Blak Truth Technology

    Why does he talk like that during the whole thing fast but slow fast but slow

  145. Steve Parker

    I’m gonna try this.👏

  146. Skullator

    Jerky looks good, I don’t doubt your method. However your voice and humour is annoying.

  147. Splaticus Blah

    Another recipe said do not use a metal bowl

  148. vjpearce

    I tried this the other day to snack on when I start dieting and as I had some in the fridge, I added some hoisin sauce to it too and it was so delicious.

  149. DragoChronicSmoker42

    what about a tie made of beef jerky……….

  150. gammafreak

    Alton Brown is my favorite chef. Sorry John.

    Omfg his voice 🐓

  155. T. J.

    OMG 🙂 That is wonderful! I have tried this, and it works! If you don’t want to take the time to make your own, I found a super cheap place to buy whole slabs of Jerky. Only 4 bucks. I order from them when I am feeling lazy.

  156. Fat Yankee Jerky

    I like to Marinade mine for 48 hours give it much more flavour nice video.

  164. Devil's Advocate

    Is it just me or does buddy sound like he ends almost every sentence with a question?

  165. Geoff Bernard

    I fortunately did get to meet you friend – Mr. Alton Brown – in my local grocery stores of all places. Turns out we live in the same area 😉

    You Chef John & Mr Brown have changed my cooking life!

  166. al capone

    What was the first sauce he said?

  167. Strangleyourfriend

    Here I am feeling like an idiot. I currently have my second batch of beef jerky drying, but only now realized they can be big pieces before drying. 2 separate times I have been cutting thin, tiny pieces of the meat, taking dozens of minutes, then pre-drying them with paper towels, agan laying them down piece by piece taking what feels like forever.
    Then placing the small pieces in the food dryer, taking another eternity.

    OMG how much time I could’ve saved if I wasn’t such a retard. Well, learn by doing I guess.

  168. Albino Wolf

    If this is this simple to make why do they sell jerky so high priced? It’s honestly ridiculous sometimes how little they give you for the price you pay for it. I usually go to costco to get my jerky. They at least give me 2 bags for a big price.

    1. Steve Miller

      because it is sold by weight. It starts out wet, and a large % goes away via evaporation.

  169. T Dogg

    I believe you are missing the “cure” ie: sodium nitrite? Cure #1

  170. TheMastergabe

    I like all recipes but I hate this homos voice. God damn why do people online talk like theyre trying out for west side stories?

  171. kissycastaneda

    I would want beef jerky as a gift anytime. yummmmmm

  174. Aranak777

    im making the recipe right now =D for a canadian touch i put some maple syrop at the place of honey

  175. Mark Thompson

    Thx for the recipe and awesome tips! Mine is just out of the oven and it’s even better than I’d hoped it’d be. Instead of laying it flat, I hung the strips on the rack and kept the cookie sheet (lined with paper) in the bottom to catch the drippings. I cooked mine for 4 hrs. & 45 minutes and BAM!

  176. High Desert Living

    could you use this marinade when making salmon jerky ?

  177. terrahawk2003

    What’s the best way/product for grinding black pepper?

    1. Steve Miller

      coffee grinder

  178. quint0nJ

    This is almost the same exact recipe I use but I also add like 1 cup of Coke it doesn’t add much flavor but the coke healps break down the fattyness and it isn’t so tough when trying to eat it

  179. Randy Polansky

    Seriously why do you talk like that?

  180. Randy Polansky

    Why do you talk like that. Are you slow?

  181. Lucyfur

    you sound like a fuckin idiot

  187. AymanChannel11plus

    This is a great recipe

  188. A Donttrip

    Yes yes excellent. But why so you randomly use a long Bitchy slide when you speak? Is that supposed to somehow pursuade morons to do as you say? Because its fkng annoying. Anyways thanks for the recipe. It better be good. 😂

  189. Adam Goodrich

    convection oven?

    Could I just beat my meat to make jerky?

    Ha, ha, very funny. But srsly has anyone ever beaten the shit out of a steak and then tried marinading and dehydrating????

    Did chef John watch 50SOG? But… but chef John is too precious for that

    how much time can you keep it on shelf? do you need something to make it more durable once all done and bottled? iwant to make some for my mother’s birthday but i need to know if i have to do it 1day earlier or 2week

  205. Sergio Blanco

    Is that jerry Seinfeld talking

  206. CockatielPony

    I’m waiting for my jerky to get done in the oven it looks really good Thank You.

  207. Cody Yanez

    My grandma always makes beef jerky around the holidays which struck me as odd most of my life. I just now realized that it makes total sense (seeing as she grew up on a farm in rural South Dakota) why that would be something you want around for those old northern winters.

  208. dank stank

    The way you talk is weirdly reeeaaalllly annoying

  209. Javier Charo

  212. Jim Fortune

    A tie, or a big jar of … anything. Or nothing.

  213. colm o'prey

    😂 occasionally give your meat some air . You can get arrested for that

  214. Hektols

    Thank you very much, in Europe beef jerky lovers have to buy it at import stores at very prohibitive prices. I never imagined that it was so easy to make.

  215. CarinDoLaN

    I like how u drag out your words lol

  216. Hidman OG

    i fucking hate your voice

  217. Jonathan

    “occasionally give your meat some air” I see what you did there, Chef John lol

  218. DStray Cat

    One day, could you make a Chateaubriand…??? Please!

  219. Maxwell Bernstein

    What do you do to mold proof it? Mine gets white mold in 2-3 weeks and I keep a very tidy home, with O2 absorbers in each zip lock bag? Do I need to get a foodsaver? Or keep it colder than room temp? Help!

  220. K O

    would horse meat b good to jerk?

      The best Father’s Day present in my opinion is an ar15 WITH beef jerky .

  233. Cameron R.

    I like the way he talks and explains everything. Very helpful 🙂

    I cant thank you enough for this and many of your other videos.

  236. jvnior_ htx

    His talk is so annoying

  237. Jelle Smith

    i made this, i cut the meat myself, i bought e rather cheap steak, put it in the fridge for 30 minutes and then cut it as thin as possible, this will get you lots of small slices instead of a couple of big ones, but it still worked out. and it tastes amazing!

    1. Jelle Smith

  238. Brock Rodrigue

    Now this is jerky done right! Thank you, Sir! I can’t wait to try this. I’m sick of paying Jack Links stupid expensive prices for 5 bites of their stupid beef jerky in their tiny kids sized bags. I’m a man! I need more jerky. I swear I could make a ton of this and eat this for supper with a side of potatoes😅

  239. Adanar666

  246. fried food hater

  247. Dominik Doherty

    I made this today and dried it on the BBQ and the seasoning was way too strong I used the exact amount as shown and it was just too strong next time I will just salt the meat along with some other seasonings but no soy sauce cause I think whats what made it taste so strong.

  248. Mike Bite

    I fucked up …

  249. charles chenot

    ha, I’ve got a vegan butter ad on this video

  258. ThatArmy VeteranGuy

    The same thing you would get at a convenience store, but with 27 less ingredients…lol..too funny!!

  259. SakoresDark

    Does anyone know if this method will yield as much protein as the name brands?? I’m not all that familiar with food chemistry, so is it high in protein because of the meat they use? or does something in the process do it?

  260. Tristen Sparks

    I wonder if you could do the same thing except with a grill…

  261. iJamie8467x

    Your voice is weird, its like you have a voice crack every word and you stop then talk

  262. Hot Wine

    Did he just put a joke into a joke about his jokes?

  263. scott chaput

    shouldn’t you use cure (prog powder 1) when you cure me for drying or smoking?

  264. Andromeda M31

    Aw man I’m so gonna make some jerky!!

  265. Chole G

    I remember we bought thin streaks well my mom did – rip mommy. But she bought thin streaks and it turn to beef jerky and we were all sad as hell untill we tasted it

  266. Grant. Pigeon. House of Pigeons

  274. R Witmer

  275. Katelyn Tucker

    can you do this with chicken or turkey?

  276. nickmorgan19457

    I’d personally prefer a tie made of beef jerky.

  277. Aaron Heline

    Jeez i like some Jerky with that saltyness

    “Quirky and jerky”

    Fuck you..

    1. Cheri

      Then get off the site, don’t watch and don’t comment

  284. Roving Punster

    At 2:17 that meat looks like it’s been cut too thin by atleast half, and because it’s sliced across the grain it likely wont have much bite resistance and it’s apt to fall apart and make a lot of meat crumbs when handled less delicately. I’d probably have gone with 1/4″ thick with-the-grain julienne of flank steak, but that’s just me.

  285. TheDemanHD

    Best way to make beef jerky is to first get a grass fed cow and drown it in a pool of teriyaki sauce. Next let it rot for 3 months once it’s roughly the color as shrek it’s good to eat.

  286. Will Dwelle

    If the jerky is left too long in the oven, will it eventually burn?

  287. Gravelord Nito

    smoked paprika is so good.

  288. Tina Sinclair

    I have made this a lot,but I use a gallon size plastic bag. Lots less mess, better flavor. TRY IT!

  289. Jaret Snyder

    Can you do the same thing with bacon to make jerky or does the procedure differ somehow?

  290. Taimur Shaikh

    Does this give your house in the smell when it is in the oven

  291. RDT Original

    how long will this last?

  292. Roland Stein

    Trying this right now. I added some half-way decent smoky blended scotch (Hogshead by Signatory).

  293. BladAzucena

    I’m gonna get this for my dad !!!! Where are you dad ?! 😂

  298. Matteo Montgomery

    I like my beef pretty fucking quirky

  299. Andy [Xvixx]

    beef jerky is fucking expensive 25g cost about 5$

  300. HuntsmanPhantom

    Food Wishes Can i use instead of oven,i really don’t think i have an oven to cook my beef jerkies in.What temperature if it’s possibe and probably specify your opinion on how to make in a microwave oven.

  301. tillybinkie

    Thank you – and love your humour!

  307. Grim Savage

    can we use Chipotle for more smokiness and extra spice?

  308. Glen Cychosz

    No refrigeration will be required because you will probably eat it all within a day or two.

  309. Joshua Haddadin

    The voice is so annoying

  310. djpaul146

    how come this video is making my mouth foam

  311. Kenneth Segovia


  312. Caleb LF10

    the question of life which i hope the youtube comment section can answer: why are there some really good pieces of beef jerky in the store bought bags and the rest are so tough and chewy and nasty is it the cut or something idk

  313. xilinor

    I can smell this from where I am. Looks delicious

  314. lettuce b frank

    Hipster friendly. Ha ha

  315. Madeline Rodrigues

  317. Matt Harris

    He sounds like he is constantly doing a bad Austin Evans impression

  318. Mike Dalaranson

  323. Master Sushi

    Thankyou for making this video LEGEND!

  324. Miroslav Radev

    i see what’s wrong with your marinade. there’s no RUM in it! You need some good sweet high in alchohol liquor in there to really cook and dry the meat up. And more salt. If the jerky doesn’t make you thirsty it aint jerky

  325. Colossal GamerFTW

    it’s Al-ton not All-ton

  326. loltyler100

    Why is you voice so high pitched 90% of the time.

  327. AngryDonutGuy

    I love you.

  328. Alan Wagoner

    Definitely jerky over a tie or socks!

  329. Kira Reilly

    This is not beef jerky. Jerky is made through dehydration. When you use a food dehydrator or an oven to make jerky, you’re technically also cooking the meat since both methods introduce heat into the strips to remove moisture.

  330. Stein17

    It’s past midnight, I’m trying to get off ;_; But the recipes look so good…

  331. mimothememe

    your voice kinda frustrates me, but I can’t judge cause I love your videos, and I’m hungry asf rn

  332. Elizabeth Shaw

    top round is also called London broil. which goes on sale often.

  333. It's Blitz

    What happens if you are butcher yourself do you need to bring it to the butcher but wouldn’t you butcher it because your a butcher or do you need to let the butcher butcher the meat even though you are the butcher and can butch it yourself?

  334. Frozen Films

    Hmm, Ties are nice but taste terrible and no one ever complains about a beef jerky tie so i think it pretty much answers itself.

  335. M D

    I ❤ you Chef John.

  336. Thoroughly Wet

    is this the same guy from lofty pursuits? they sound exactly the same

  337. Futuristic Visionary

    Yea, I’ll stick with the store bought beef jerky.

    Thanks, another great idea to make at home, a much better quality and also the fun of making a taste just for you!

  342. 4ngel209

    fucking annoying voice but good vid

  343. LurifaxDK

    Can this be made without the honey? Trying to stay off the carbs.

  344. Mari Perez

    I’m trying this.

  345. Rue Fkxeng

    In South Africa we call this Biltong !

  346. mad max

    i took your advice and made some jerky love your recipe great for prepping thanks. done mine at 180 for 4 hours

  347. Shannon Turner

    Excuse me Sir may I have some Jerkey

  348. Alayshia Williams

    the meat department at meijer could only cut the beef to 1/4 inch thickness. is this too thick? how thin cut is yours (in. thickness measurement) thanks.

  349. Drager V

    I really love how he talks.

  350. Will Fox

    Dude. I love your recipes. When I first started dating my boyfriend (this is his youtube account oops lol) I found out his favorite recipe was beef stroganoff and wanted to make it for him, yours was the best recipe. I instantly started coming to your channel any time I wanted something new or wanted a new take on a recipe I already had.

    But I gotta say, you’d be an amazing voice actor. I don’t know if you work as a chef or something already, but if you, imagine all that money from having 2 high paying careers that you’re great at haha. I can totally picture you being a successful voice actor!

  351. Mario Tovar

    Nice, great vid

  352. midorialexandros

    … But what if the tie is made of beef jerky.

  353. SS4Xanatos

    So hypothetically, if you wanted your jerky to have a more of a crunchy (not like a potato chip but more like the crispness of a good hamburger dill pickle) so that you don’t have to spend hours chewing it (but at the same time, it’s not so tender you might as well have just rehydrated it), how would you go about doing that?

  354. Retro Gamer

    I tried a batch with honey and one with brown sugar ..the brown sugar brings more flavor out of the jerky

  355. Retro Gamer

    good video I will subscribed

  356. Aron Aron

    Whats the Name of the Sauce he talks in the beginng? cant unterstand it :((

  357. un0m3asa13ah

    … I’m alleegic to soy. what can I use instead of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce (which generally contains soy as well.)

  358. X_Trooper

    i cant believe how simple this was thank you!

  359. Joshua Peters

    I think I would smoke this first, then dehydrate

  360. cookey crunch videos

    Is there an easy recipe, something like this one, for making beef bacon at home?

  362. jinakuo

    i would love a jar of jerky over a tie anyday!

  363. The Flannel Dragonfly

    Is black pepper a have to add? I am allergic to black pepper.

  364. ACO

    “nailed it” 😂😂
    I am just discovering you and cracking the hell up.

  365. David Aguilar

    Good video! I’ll let you know how it turns out for me.

  366. jhett smart

    i want to beat up your voice

    1. jhett smart

      but the jerky looks nice

  367. Marlo Stanfield

    Do you think flipping the meat about halfway through would make a difference?

  368. Suad I

    I just leave the oven door cracked

  369. Abdul Sughayar

    Good afternoon chief John do you have a receipe for Teriyaki BEEF JERKY

  370. Vic Svaporub

    can anyone tell my how thick/thin I should have the butcher slice the beef? I tried it with some beef that was already sliced for stir fry and it was a disaster. way too thin and it was inedible.

  371. Nic De Houwer

    half in the baaaaaaggg

  372. William S

    First video on this channel I’ve seen and despite how informative it may be, I can’t handle the narrator’s voice inflections going up an octive on every word. My god. Worse than nails on a chalkboard. 1.7 mil subs… #mindblown

  373. CoxTH

    Little trick to extend the shelf life of the jerky even more: Add one or two oxygen absorber sachets to the jar you’re storing the jerky in. This prevents the fat in the meat from reacting with oxygen in the air and becoming rancid.

  374. aesthetic memes

    I stopped watching because of the jokes

  375. In the Mix

    How long can this last before it spoils?

  376. waynusp1664

    You so did not nail it good sir (well the Jerky nailed it) it is pronounced WUS TER SHIRE, Ignore the spelling example ,One says nife…not K nife…see! try again! (Yes I am English)
    Great jerky though, thumbs up!
    Edit 9 months later…Chef John you are a genius….I have nailed many of your recipes….thank you!

  377. Skinny Kreenus

    I’d like a tie made out of beef jerky for fathers day.

  378. Tony Mac

    I’m trying this but with some siracha (seasoning).. yes, it exists!

  379. Flemming Højgaard

    “I like my beef snacks, like I like my humor, dry a little spicy and hopefully grass fed”
    He subtly implied that he smokes weed hahahah

  380. risenride

    if i make a big amount, how long does this thay edible before being dangerous?

    1. CoxTH

      Jerky can be stored for months without refrigeration.

  381. NavySturmGewehr

    That looks like rouladen meat! Have you made rouladen Chef John?


    I’m a jerky junky from way back

  383. napalm84

    Thank you, ill try this!

  384. Borjong Cat

    I marinate for 12 hour or less

  385. slabbinonspokez z

    I know there’s different ways to do it but using the oven doesn’t get it done properly. it’s a dehydration process not a cooking process. just sit the meat on rack and place it on the table with a fan in front of it. it takes four hours but the longer you wait the better it is.

    1. slabbinonspokez z

      try it with the just the fan and let me know which one u like better. do all the prep just the same as u did just sit on a rack in front of the fan.

  386. Retired_Fiance

    Thank you for this video! Made a ton for this weekend and shared your video a few times already. Don’t stop making videos!!!!♡♡♡

  389. jadekayak01

    I’ve just done my first batch of jerky ever.
    I cheated with honey/soy/garlic off the shelf sauce, extra Kikkoman soy,50% LEA & PERINS worsted sauce,cracked pepper and salt.

    I marinated in a ziplock bag(with air removed) overnight and oven dried for 6 hours.

    amazing-im going bush for 3 months so this stuff will be great(just tried my first batch of pickled steak too-melt in mouth soft and nice n spicy)
