Recipe by William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin
I found that this marinade works well for Turkey Jerky as well. The beer helps tenderize the meat and the brown sugar and pancake syrup gives it that little bit of a sweet taste.

Just tried this -- we added a tad more brown sugar cause we like it sweet, and a bit of hot sauce -- but this is to die for. NEVER would have thought of the syrup but boy this is GREAT!! thanks, Uncle Bill!
