I've made a lot of moose and caribou jerky when living in Alaska, but did it all in a Big Chief smoker. Like the other guys, several different marinades for 8 to 12 hours, rinse and pat dry, then dry it on racks until it gets a pelical covering and into the smoker. Same with salmon, we got tons of it there with subsistance fishing, like 30 per family member dipping Reds, but man, is it expensive to buy here!

I can see where a dehydrator would be a lot less mess. Anxious to here how you do.

i cut the flank steak with the meat slicer and the piece of meat was so thin i almost ended up with square strips.
then i put it in the marinade/brine around 2:00 pm
i added about an extra 1/2 cup teryaki and a tbl. spoon of brown sugar
and any where it gave me a choice on how much hot stuff to use i put in the larger amount
its been soaking about 7-8 hrs and is soaking up the juice like a sponge
i cant stir it often enough (every couple hrs) , it smells great.
i'll let it sit over night and stir it one more time when i get up.
then i'll start drying it after i'm good and awake and had some breakfast,
and we'll see how it goes

DONE!
i got almost all 3+ lbs. in the dehydrator and 4 and 1/2 hrs later i got some jerky!

it taste great, sweet teryaki and a little spicy hot (not hot enough for me but everyone else says almost to hot-whimps)

i took the left over odds and ends that wouldnt fit in the machine and made a teryaki beef bowl for breakfast

i ended up with almost 1/2 of a 1 gallon zip-lock bag full

i will be doing this alot more - i love jerky, and it will be fun to try different recipes.
but this was a great first run, i think its going to be hard to improve on, by all that much!

Well, Matt, it is obvious that you are hooked and addicted to the wonder world of dehydrator Jerky. Good Job for your first shot and BTW, there are no support groups for Jerky Junkies !

now that we have eaten almost all of the first batch, we have decided that it was almost a perfect recipe, and i did change it very little.

so here it is:

3lb- flank steak or beef brisket
1/2 cup- worcestershire sauce
1 cup- teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon- ground black pepper
1 teaspoon- garlic powder
1 teaspoon- onion powder
1 teaspoon- liquid smoke
3 teaspoons- org.tabasco pepper sauce
(you can also use chipotle, sweet and spicy, or habanero tabasco sauces)
3 teaspoons- crushed red peppers
3 teaspoons- brown sugar

enjoy

its that time of year again!!!!!!!!!!

had to drag this out, as I have the first batches of the winter (I know its only just now fall, as of today) in the fridge marinating right now!

2/3 of the batch is pretty hot and the other 1/3 is not so hot.(wife and kids cant handle a little heat )

its football season and I just all-ways seem to end up cooking while I watch the games on TV (the kitchen is quieter than the living room, the wife can really yell at the TV sometimes!) plus the Seahawks aren't doing much yet.

I have fine tuned that recipe some and now I have a bunch of guys that have tried it, wanting to pay me to make it!!!! I say sorry, too much work, but enjoy that one piece I gave ya.

Glad to see this pop up again - - - - oddly enuff the Wiffy and I were talking about dehydrator Jerky just yesterday and how much my Grandbabies love it. Guess I need to make a batch also, now that you've jarred my memory and appetite. Maybe, if I do, then the Grandkids will come see me again. LMAO

i have found that when you make it yourself, its even better

you can choose the quality and cut of meat, and make it exactly how you want it to taste

i use flank steak most of the time and cut it thick, its easy to chew and taste great, i call it steak sticks instead of jerky

also had macco shark jerky. It was ok.

gotta say, I've always loved jerky and am now looking at dehydrators because of this thread. Carna Asada jerky sounds good. I personally like terriyaki that's hot. yum!

It all sounds good to me - - - - I think the "best" that I have ever had or made was from fresh Venison and that's probably because it is a very lean meat which makes the best jerky IMHO. A beef cut called London Broil works well also, if you can't acquire any Venison.

well its the "jerky making" time of year for me

i've been making about 1/3 of every batch very hot

in fact its gotten to the point that just for fun, i'm trying to make it so hot, you are afraid to eat it

but i haven't had much luck, its very hot but still very good


however, I think that's all about to change

I found some ghost pepper sauce
