  • 1 -32 oz. bottle
  • 1/2 -5 oz. bottle
  • 1- 2 oz. bottle
    tobasco sauce

    soy sauce

    shakes of black pepper

    garlic salt
  • 1/2 oz
    ketchen bouquet
  • 1/4 -5oz bottle
    a-1 steak sauce

How to Make Venison Jerky


  1. Mix all ingredients for the mop. If mop is to thick to brush, add more soy sauce and worchestershire sauce and pepper to taste.
  2. The amount of tabasco sauce and red peper I have down will make her pretty hot. I'd add these last, at least the red pepper, so you could just add to taste.
  3. Prep meat. Salt both sides, about twice as much as you would to fry meat if it's thick slices. If it is thin, 1/2 or 3/4 of an inch, just salt one side.
  4. Put a few shakes of pepper on both sides also. Let it set close to 2 hours to soak in.
  5. Start your smoker and follow directions. Lay meat on racks.
  6. Smoke 4 or 5 hours or until you turn it and then mop one side heavy (Mop both sides if you want it hot)
  7. Smoke till it's hard: approximately 10 to 14 hours in a small smoker, Chief-hickory....etc.
