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. DON'T USE IODIZED SALT!
  • 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.
