Introduction: Yummy Deer Jerky
you are going to need a few pounds of deer meat, and a marinade
first off cut your strips of meat into small slices about 1/8 inch.
now prepare your marinade. take 3/4 cup of worcestesire
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons teryaki
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce ( tobassco etc.) or to tast.
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon powder onion
1 teaspoon black pepper
approx. 1 1/2 lb venison
now put your marinade in a gallon freezer bag and add in your meat. knead so the marinade is all over the meat. now lay it flat on a refrigerator shelf and let it sit overnight. every few hours knead the meat some more to make sure the sauce is evenly spread.
after 8-12 hours take the meat out and let the excess marinade drip off and lay the pieces on a dehydrator or oven rack
if you are using a dehydrator leave the jerky bits in there for 5-6 hours and check, if it feels and looks like jerky your done if not let it sit a while longer.
if you are using an oven turn the oven on about 150 or lower and let them sit for a few hours checking them often. after they are almost done turn the oven to 200 Fahrenheit and prop the door slightly open like with a spoon for about 1 hour.
now your almost done after your jerky has dried try it! then put it all in a ziplock bag and leave it open and put it in the refrigerator until it cools down. then you can squeeze out all the air and seal it and just leave it wherever. and if you have any of those oxygen eaters that are in reg. bags you can throw one in there.
