Barbecued Jerky - Dehydrator
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup beer
2/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire® sauce
2 tablespoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Dash of cayenne pepper
1 pound meat strips

Combine sugars, oil, and onion in a pan. Heat and stir. Reduce heat, cook until onions caramelize. Add beer. Simmer. Cool.

Mix remaining ingredients together with the exception of strips. Allow at least 15 minutes for flavors to blend, then puree in blender.

Add strips. Marinate at least one hour. For longer marinating time, place in refrigerator in a covered container or in an air-tight plastic bag. Remove from marinade and place in your Open Country® Dehydrator on dehydrator trays at 145 F. Dry approximately 6 to 12 hours until chewy.
