    This is the exact recipe for 1.5 pounds of deer or beef to make jerkey the way me and most everybody i know likes it.


    1 teaspoon liquid smoke
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/3 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1/4 cup soy sauce or teriyaki sauce if you want i like soy sauce better
    1/4 cup worchestershire sauce

    I weigh the meat and put it in gallon ice cream buckets or clean five gallon buckets (depending on how much we make at time) and pour this mixture over it and stir or mix it around several times over twenty four hours. Then place in dehydrater and rotate as needed till done. of coarse when i do a five gallon bucket i multiply my measurements to do six pounds at a wack to make things easier

    the longer you let it soak the stronger the flavor, if you do a five gallon bucket and have a small dehydrater the last of it will be reall strong.

    another one we like is to leave out the dry spices and add 1 pack of taco seasoning this only works well with soy sauce recipe not teriyaki

    Also we take one family size bottle of country bobs steak sauce to 1.5 pounds of meat and its different but its good too


    enjoy

    I know all about the counter space problem but my wife loves the stuff and doesnt really care as long as she gets some of the finished product.

    Yeah mark i rarely go a year with out making at least one whole deer into jerky except the loins of coarse. Thats one kind of jerky i just never could take a liking to is the burger jerky, i dont know why but the thin sliced is my favorite.

    That recipe sounds good. Ill have to try it. The last 2 years Ive been using nesco original recipe. I buy it at Wally World. It pre packaged in 1 lb packs and 1 box does 6 lbs. It has a really good taste to it. I also have a sweet and sour recipe thats pretty good. Ill try to find it and post it here.

    Sounds good. I got to buy another dehydrator myself. When i use the oven i turn it down as low as it'll run and prop the door open with a knife. Put in at bed time and it's ready in the morning usually. This bunch eats it like a swarm of locust.:confused2:

    Hey i hear that its a good thing that i bought extra trays with my dehydrater or else i couldnt keep up. Theres peoplea round here that say they dont like deer that if its going will come in and take some off the trays when its still warm, Oh well i guess thats why i make so much of it each year. Hope you guys like it as much as we do

    I found this in a magazine last year and tried it out it.

    2lbs. venison sliced 1/4 in thick (also works for beef )
    1/2 c. canned pineapple juice
    1/2 c. wine vinegar
    1/4 c. soy sauce

    1/2 c. brown sugar
    3 tsp.lemon pepper
    1 tsp. kosher salt
    1 tsp.onion power
    1 tsp.garlic powder

    Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a seperate bowl; add to dry ingredients and stir well. Add meat strips and marinate 10 to 12 hrs. Remove meat from marinate, place on racks and let drip-dry. Place rack in oven or dehydrator. Dry until pliable.
