Homemade Jerky How-To (provided by John Reid)

This recipe is for 2 lbs. of venison. Adjust for more or less meat. Should work well with all meats.

2 lbs venison, thinly sliced

1 tbsp Worcestershire

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp seasoning salt

1tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbsp liquid smoke (optional)

Mix together and stir until completely dissolved. Combine marinade with venison and refrigerate for 12-16 hours. Lay tin foil down on a flat oven pan and place the strips evenly across.

Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius and place the strips in. Jam the oven door open slightly to keep it vented for dehydration. Cook for 3 hours, turning the strips every hour. Let cool at room temperature for an hour. The jerky should crack when bent but not snap.

There it is! A lightweight, nutritious, durable trail snack!


– freeze the meat beforehand to make it easier to cut into thin slices

– liquid smoke is below acceptable carcinogen levels but I don’t use it. I included it with the recipe just to give readers the option.
