Smoky Cola Beef Jerky {Summer Grilling}

Smoky cola beef jerky is a delicious, homemade beef jerky snack that you can make with your backyard grill or smoker.

Enchiladas, bacon in brownies and now ‘jerky’ – yeah, my inner carnivore was at its finest when planning the posts this week. I promise I’ll make it up to all of those sweet tooth people tomorrow with something just as ridiculous.

Now, on to the smoky cola beef jerky!

This week’s Summer Grilling item was actually supposed to be saved for next week, which I am calling #manfoodweek as we prepare for Father’s day.

But that would have been a lie, because I was making this smoky cola jerky for a woman. My stepmom loves Wild Bill’s beef jerky, so the moment I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It’s not really dehydrated meat, but it’s pretty darn tasty. My stepmom appreciated the discovery in her fridge, picking up on the sweet and smoky cola taste when she snacked on it.

I know that I am personally guilty of taking more than my share when taste testing this recipe.

I'm not a store-bought beef jerky fan, but somehow homemade seems pretty tasty. I've been meaning to try it out. Thanks for a recipe!

I love your presentation. I would be happy to get this beef jerky instead of chocolate, and that is saying a lot!

A girl who can make beef jerky is a keeper!
