Jerky Recipes

Being a hunter... and always looking for new things to do with venison... how about seeing some jerky recipes.

I've experimented with my own and done ok... and I've tried the "off the shelf" variety stuff with nothing really impressing me.

What do all of you out there have to offer that could help the rest of us out?

I like spicy... but not too hot so the rest of the family can enjoy it too. Give up the recipes!

a few different ways that we have done it...........and this is doing everything the same way you normally would, and before you put the jerky in the oven......

1-try some cayenne pepper, hot sauce of your choice, butter and lemon juice, mixed together(in a pot on the stove to melt everything together).........and just go by taste......very tasty.

2-montreal steak seasoning and a little garlic
3-a-1 steak sauce and some black pepper

got a few more ideas that im going to try later on, but these have been pretty successful, and the taste, to me and the ones that have tried it, is awesome!!

Keep 'em comin... Shasta ate the last good batch I made and I didn't have the chance to write down the recipe. I was too busy cleaning up the aftermath.

I welcome all suggestions at this point!

DOOOOOOD... I was hoping to hear you were feeling better and would be ready to rock. Did you have surgery or anything yet? Any treatment at all to make things better? I haven't been keeping up lately and kinda lost track of the situation... forgive me.

And you were supposed to PM me something... I haven't forgotten that. Have you?

I really prefer smooth recipes rather than jerky recipes.

5 pounds elk or venison, use fairly good quality meat
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup crushed red chili flakes
2 tablespoons garlic powder

Slice meat against the grain approximately 3/16 to 1/4-inch thick. It works best if you slice the meat when it is partially frozen. In a bowl mix together soy sauce, lime juice, vinegar, red chili flakes, and garlic powder. Add the meat to the cure and marinate for at least 24 hours, refrigerated.


Rack the meat in a hot smoker and smoke at a low temperature, approximately 100 degrees F, for 1 to 2 days until almost crispy. Don't over dry or the jerky will be too crunchy. Store, well wrapped, in non-frost free freezer for up to 1 year.

From Alton Brown - Food Guru

Jerky Recipe courtesy Alton Brown, 2004

From the Great Big Food Show


2 pounds red meat (although you can use elk, bear, venison, wild boar or just about any other critter you can hunt. I stick with beef such as top round steak, flank steak or brisket) Brine:
2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2/3 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon honey


Place the meat in the freezer for 1 hour, so that it will be easier to cut.

Slice the meat with the grain as thin as humanly possible.


Mix brine ingredients right in a resealable plastic bag (placing the bag inside a large plastic container will make this easier.)


Place meat strips in brine. Move the meat around so the marinade is evenly distributed around it. Seal bag, working out as much air as humanly possible.


Lay bag flat in the plastic container and refrigerate for 3 to 6 hours.


Remove meat from the brine and drain on cooling racks. Discard the brine.


When the meat is dry place it inside Blo-hard 3000 and set fan to medium. Leave overnight or for at least 12 hours.
If you don't find yourself in possession of a Blo-hard 3000, place strips directly on oven racks.


Heat oven to lowest setting and use a blob of foil as a wedge to hold door ajar.


Oven-dry overnight or until meat reaches a consistency of your liking.


Store in zip-top bag or jar in a cool dark place for 30 or 40 years or until fuzzy stuff starts to grow on it.
