What is the best lean to fat ratio to use for restructured beef jerky
Our official recommendation is “lean beef”. I would suggest this to be around 90/10. You could definitely go leaner if you wanted, or even towards 80/20, but I wouldn’t go fattier than 80/20. I would personally stick to around 90/10 or so.

@Parksider what did you use for your shell of your cooler? Did you use a cooler insert or just build an insulated shack.
@akdave Not sure what your smoker set up is but the best way I have found to increase the humidity in a smoker is with Automotive Sponges. I detail that in this post https://meatgistics.waltonsinc.com/topic/1077/cured-sausage-205-advanced-thermal-processing
Raising the relative humidity will absolutely decrease your cook times, and it prevents/combats the stall
