This is a fantastic jerky recipe. I did add a few more ingredients to spice it up a bit after the first batch turned out a little too mild for my taste. First off, I added red pepper flakes to the spice rub as well as to the marinade. I also let the marinade simmer for a couple minutes just to give the peppers a chance to steep. I also added about a tablespoon of Thai chili garlic paste. And just for good measure I tossed in a few dashes of Tabasco. The result was a more flavorful, spicier jerky. Not flaming hot, but a little more bite than the original. This recipe is a FANTASTIC sweet and tangy base for jerky. I would also recommend beginning your drying process in the oven at around 300 degrees until the steam evaporates, then transfer to the drying racks. Getting the meat up to 160 degrees or so kills bacteria and speeds the drying. Then you move it to your dehydrator for another 3-4 hours (depending on how thick your slices are). I highly recommend this recipe. Nice work DIXYCHIK.
