My son and I just finished a very successful deer season. We both got deer and now our freezer is chock full. We have been experimenting with jerky and found this recipe very tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients and allow to marinade over night.
  2. Using your choice of jerky gun nozzle, spread onto dehydrator trays.
  3. Dehydrate to your desired consistency. I use 4 trays that cook at 156 degrees for 6 to 6 1/2 hours.
  4. Store is zip lock bags.
  5. Note: I usually made 1" wide strips. I also have a top down dehydrator with which I rotate the trays every two hours.
