eye of round huh? Cool I will try it.  I have made 2 venison roasts worth of jerky so far and they were great.  Eye of round is a type of roast?  I want to be able to slice it with the meat slicer.  Thanks

Yes it is a roast. The ones I can get at the store are about 4-6 inches in Dia. with very little trimming. I have a deli Hobart slicer so I freeze my roast before slicing and it come out great.

Just make sure you cut all the major fat off the meat. Fat don't make good jerky at all in my opinion. Like everyone is saying the back of the cow is lean and makes good jerky.
