    Believe it or not........straight "Yoshida's Gourmet Teriyaki Marinade" makes for a great oven jerky recipe. You can tweak for preferred taste.........black pepper....garlic....red chili sauce.....smoke flavoring......

    Forget the liquid marinades and start using dry rubs. The taste is better and it's a lot easier to control the amount of flavor you cover the meat with. Most grocery stores carry a bunch of different premade rubs (keeps you from buying a bunch of spices you may or may not ever use again)

    Here's a basic rub:
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne (or to taste)

    and this recipe from Chow is an awesome change of pace.

    Take an Old Bay seafood seasoning bag, put it in a pot of water, bring it to a boil, let it cool and marinate your beef in it. Works great for chicken on the grill, too.

    This is where I spend the rest of my time. http://forum.bradleysmoker.com/
    Lot's of good jerky recipes. I think your first problem is that you're missing the smoker.

    Here's what i used to do-
    take your beef and freeze it partially to make for easy slicing.
    lay it all out and lightly salt and pepper both sides. if you like it spicy , use cayenne powder too.
    take a pouch of Adolphs Mesquite Meat Marinade and mix it with 1/2 cup of water
    add liberal mount of liquid smoke
    soak overnight, then cook on lowest heat you can make. ( i like to use a dehydrator)

    works good with venison as well

    Cheap dehydrators are only $40. You'll spend more than that in two days of making it in the oven.

    Shakey, invest the money in a smoker. there's lots of choices to suit any budget. I personally have a Bradley Digital Smoker. It cost me about 500$ but it was worth every penny. It's super easy to use and next to impossible to really screw anything up. Plus, they have a great forum with people that are willing to help (rather than bash) newbies. I can't believe some of the stuff that comes out of that thing. I currently hold the title for "best chicken wings" among my friends. Not to mention, wicked ribs, brisket, salmon etc etc etc.... Seriously, buy a smoker and you'll never want to cook with anything else. Now if I could just find the time to use it...

    I get fried chicken gizzard cravings with hot sauce. I can be working and think about them. I'll get up and drive ten miles hunting them down. Yea, I'm weird like that.

    Jerky? Why would anyone want to take something at least marginally edible and render it inedible?

    There's little difference between the taste of jerky and the taste of the package in which it comes. Jerky is a low-tech way to preserve protein, not a method for creating a delicacy. Gak.
