Trim any excess fat off of your meat, and then slice thin (1/4 - 1/8 inch thick slices). This is easier if the meat is still slightly frozen
Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Put the meat in a zip lock, and pour the marinade into the bag and then seal. Let the meat marinate for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours
Remove the meat from the marinade and blot dry with a paper towel. Place the meat on your smoker and let it smoke at 150 to 180 degrees for 2 hours.
Check on the meat at 2 hours. Some of the pieces may be done; you can tell if you pick up a piece and when you shake it, it doesn't bend.
Place the jerky on a cooling rack until it's come down to room temp, and then store in an airtight container in your fridge.
