To make the Food Network beef jerky marinade, combine 2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce, 2/3 cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey and 2 teaspoons ground black pepper with 2 teaspoons onion powder, 1 teaspoon liquid smoke and 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes in a 1-gallon zip top bag. The recipe calls for using the marinade with 2 pounds of flank steak that's been trimmed and thinly sliced. The meat should soak for at least three hours before drying it out using air conditioning filters strapped to a box fan.

TheKitchn.com's recipe for marinade requires different flavorings. For this jerky marinade, combine 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup sesame oil, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons chili-garlic paste with 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, 2 teaspoons ground pepper and 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered ginger in a zip top bag. The chili-garlic paste may be omitted for a milder flavor. This marinade is appropriate for both beef and turkey.

The Art of Manliness calls its recipe "the best in the world." The marinade consists of 2 cups each of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and teriyaki sauce mixed with 1 cup liquid smoke and 1/2 cup dark corn syrup. The spices are 3 tablespoons each of garlic powder, onion powder, sesame seeds and brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
