Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine ground venison, salt, MSG, hot sauce, curing mixture, barbeque seasoning, water, liquid smoke, garlic powder, and pepper; mix thoroughly. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Line food dehydrator trays with plastic wrap. Pat meat mixture into a very thin layer on the trays. Place in dehydrator set according to manufacturers directions. Once the meat has firmed up, after about the first 2 hours, remove it from the plastic, cut into strips, and replace onto the racks. Continue until the meat is done drying, about 5 to 10 hours total depending on machine.
  3. When finished, blot off any grease with a paper towel. Store in the refrigerator in a jar with a tight fitting lid.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Best jerky recipe I have found so far! I left out the hot sauce because I don't like anything very spicy and wasn't sure. Still turned out excellent. I used elk and deer.
