If you're already making jerky, why not test it out with ALL the meats? Certified Creole BBQ took this to heart and tested out making jerky out of Bottom Flat Steak, Skirt Steak, and Bacon. He used three different seasoning methods too! Learn how to make jerky in your charcoal grill with this beef jerky recipe.

Tip: cut small end pieces & excess fat. 

2. Pour Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze in Ziplock Bag.

3. Apply Olive Oil & Char-griller Grills®️ Steak Rub to both sides of the meat & place in ziplock bag. 

4. Mix the meat in the Ziplock bag & place in the refrigerator for 2-24 hours.

5. Remove from fridge and place on tray and allow the meat to get to room temperature. 

6. Bacon: No need to marinade. When your ready to cook apply olive oil on both sides of the bacon & season both sides with Fogo Charcoal The Rub.
