This is the stuff of legends folks, personally this is my current #1 favorite jerky on the planet right now. It’s got some serious kick to it, if you don’t want it very hot 1/2 the pepper. The flavor of this jerky just blows people away! I’ve been making it once a week lately because I can’t get enough nor the people who come to my house lol
