Congratulations and Welcome to the Forum. I personally haven't made Jerky, but there are many here who have. There is the Bradley Web Sight with helpful recipes and it does include Beef Jerky. Give it a try to get you started. https://www.north-america.bradleysmoker.com/recipes/

Welcome to the forum.

I smoke my jerky at about 150- 155 F.

Smoke it for about 1-2 hours or more if desired.

Then keep drying it until it will bend under pressure without breaking.

It depends on how thick you cut your meat.  Ideally you start with 1/4" thick slices that have been cured for 3 days.  Best temp is 190 to 200 f for about 2 hours.  Turn all slices over after 1 hour for even cooking.  Don't smoke to heavy as the meat is thin and will absorb fast.
