    If you need a go-to deer jerky recipe...then look no further.

    Ingredients:

    2-3 lbs of Deer Steak or Roast
    2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
    2/3 cup soy sauce (spend the $7 on a good bottle of real soy sauce)
    1 T honey
    2 t ground black pepper
    2 t onion powder
    1 t garlic powder
    1 t liquid smoke
    1 t red pepper flakes
    Dehydrator

    Wisk together all of the ingredients for the marinade...

    Thaw your deer steaks until they are still partially frozen.

    Remove all fat and sinew from vension and slice steaks into 1/8" to 1/4" or so strips...

    Marinate the strips for 4 hours in the refrigerator...

    Drain the strips of venison from the marinade, pat dry with a paper towel and arrange them on your dehydrator trays.

    Set your dehydrator at 160F and let it go for 4-8 hours. It all depends on how thick/thin your strips are. Keep checking every 30 minutes after the first 3 or 4 hours.

    Enjoy! This marinade is sweet and a little spicy. Nothing crazy or over the top. Just a good tasting, traditional take on jerky.

    Looks good! I use a similar method and I also like to throw in some molasses.

    I love using molasses. I've got a baked beans recipe that can be used as a side or as a dip (perfect with tortilla chips or Fritos). I got the recipe from my wife's family and it gets mashed every time I make it. I have to make something on Saturday and then on Monday for the game, so I'll just make that and post it. Definitely one of my favorite ways to use ground venison.

    In the oven.
    Set the temp to 200 and leave the door cracked open just a bit. This oven method does reduce the drying time so keep an eye on it
