keto/sugar-free beef jerky recipe

I generally hate food blogs. The unctuous writing. The loathsome abundance of worthless content before the actual recipe. I especially dread the Q&A type worthless content – “Is jerky right for me”?

Anyway, I generally didn’t like any of the recipes I found online so I decided to wing it and make my own. This is my first attempt at this and I will revise or make a future post if this doesn’t come out well.
Food blog-esque high quality pics.
On to the recipe:
1.75 lbs top round, sliced, beaten with a meat tenderizer (a flat one, not a spikey one)
1 cup each Worcester sauce, soy sauce, and Diet Coke
2 Tsp salt
2 Tsp garlic powder 
1 tsp cayenne 
Marinated overnight 
I put them on my pellet grill (I have a Rec-Tec) on the “Low” setting which is about 180F for 2 hours before even checking on them. I recently got a jerky rack thing off Amazon – it’s a Traeger brand but fits fine I have a Rec-Tec “Stampede”. It would probably be best in the future to load up the rack on a cookie sheet and then put the rack in the grill. Looks like it could hold 3-4 lbs or so. These cooked for a total of 3 hours.

Ici nous avons le jerky du bouef.

 The finished product could use a little more salt and sweet flavor. Spiciness is at the correct level. I’m generally happy with the result.

Welding thin sheet metal

Just can’t get the hang of it. Temporary setback, need to redesign…

So the idea is to build an automated, network-connected smoker out of a recycled stainless steel half barrel keg. So far, I’ve just setup this jig to the keg to plasma cut the top off. This will be the lid. Later, I’ll weld a sheet metal “lip” around the circumference of the base to hold the lid in place and prevent smoke and heat leakage.

I’m trying to cut just below the seam where the keg was originally welded.

So off comes the top:

And here is stick welding stainless (mfugly):
