Best Venison Jerky Recipe

A few of my hobbies are hunting, gardening, camping and fishing. So I had to find ways to put up my bounty. My most famous is my deer jerky. It took me a while to find one that I liked. I hope this will save you a few steps. You can get premixed seasonings from Cabela's or Sportsmans Guide.

If you try it and like it, I would like to hear back from you. If you are into hunting,hiking,camping or fishing, this jerky is great to take along as it does not spoil fast.

Venison Jerky

3- lbs of venison or beef (hind quarter) cut into strips 1/8- 1/4 thick

1/4- cup Soy Sauce

1/2- cup water

1/3- worchestershire sauce

2-tsp Accent

2-tbls spoons liquid hickory smoke

2/3 garlic powder

2/3 onion powder

1-tsp pepper

1-tbls cajun spice (optional)

Marinate meat in sauce for 48 hours

Place on tooth picks and hang in the oven from grate at 175 degrees 4-5 hours a little longer if needed. Don't over cook.

I lay a piece of tin foil on the bottom of the oven to catch spills..I also put a spoon in the oven door just to have it cracked open. The jerky dries better.
