pounds sliced venison. mine came out just right. not to thin and not too thick. make sure they are all the same thickness or as close as you can get so get done at the same time. next time i might partially freeze the meat before slicing.

1/4 c
soy sauce
2 Tbsp
canning salt
3 Tbsp
fine grind black pepper
1 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine the marinade with the meat.
allow to marinate for 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 170 degrees
Line the bottom oven rack with tin foil.
Insert toothpics into the ends of the strips of marinated venison and hang each one from the top rack.
LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN SLIGHTLY (for air circulation and to let moisture escape) cook the strips for 4 to 6 hours until they are thoroughly dry but not brittle or mushy.
