  • Homemade Deer Jerky

    It's that time again. Pre-Rut is here. Thought I'd share a Jerky recipe with you!

    Deer Jerky by Jeff
    An awesome venison jerky that you can make and be the envy of your friends in your food dehydrator, you can dry the jerky @ 155 degrees for 4 ½ hours. ________________________________________
    2 venison hams / roast
    16 tablespoons soy sauce
    16 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    8 tablespoons liquid smoke flavoring
    4 tablespoons barbecue sauce 2 teaspoon pepper
    2 teaspoon garlic powder
    2 teaspoon onion powder
    2 teaspoon salt
    4 tablespoons crushed red peppers
    2 teaspoon Chipotle Chile Pepper

    Note: double receipt for 4 deer hams

    1 Slice meat into long strips, 1 to 2 inch wide and 1/4 inch
    thick. In a large pot, combine all the above ingredients
    Refrigerate for 48 hours. Stir occasionally, to evenly distribute marinade.
    2 Set dehydrator to 155 degrees.
    3 Place meat strips on a rack so that they do not touch
    each other, and dehydrate for 4 1/2 to 5 hours in the dehydrator, or
    until desired texture and moisture content is achieved.

    Once this is complete: reload gun to fight off “moochers”!

    Note: This can also be done in your oven at its lowest setting. You might have to shorten the cook time.
    I'm ready to make some. lol
    No luck this weekend but it will happen soon enough.
    You know you are only 35 min away from me so you could slide down here and make a delivery!!!!! Lol....just kidding man. I will definitely have to try it...
    I marinaded 57 pounds, including liquid and I have been cycling the dehydrator since Saturday. So far I have about 8 Gallon zipploc's full 2 dehydrators going right now and should finish tomorrow. AND IT IS GOOD!
