Beef + Marinade:

  • 3 lbs Beef Round trimmed of silver skin and fat
  • 1 cup Soy Sauce low sodium
  • 2 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1.5 tbsp BLK Hot Sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp Big Bad BBQ Ale Rub
  • 1.5 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1.25 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Black Garlic Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds


  • Begin by making your marinade by adding the soy sauce, minced garlic, hot sauce, bbq rub, brown sugar, honey, black garlic sauce and sesame seeds to a bowl and mix thoroughly. Set to the side.
  • Take your beef round and slice in half lengthwise.
  • Then, thinly slice the steak for your jerky.
  • Using a mallet, flatten all the pieces and place into a food safe bag or bowl.
  • Add the marinade to the bag and mix the beef around to coat all pieces. Set in the fridge for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  • Preheat your Oklahoma Joe's Judge Charcoal grill for indirect cooking at 175F.
  • Pull out the beef and evenly place on a mesh tray.
  • Place into the smoker to cook for 4-5 hours or until the beef jerky is no longer bending when you pick it up.
  • About 10 minutes before pulling off, glaze with more honey and keep smoking.
  • Pull off once done and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve up and enjoy!
