If you would like to make jerky with a food dehydrator,it isn't that hard and for the price of a video game you can buy one,or visit a flea market as I have seen food dehydrators sell for $10 or less.
It's a jerky machine. If you like to buy your jerky at the market, you know it's pretty expensive. It's just meat without the water. You can do that at home, and I think it's the main reason people buy food dehydrators. Of all the dehydrator recipes online, the most common are the jerky varieties. With a dehydrator at home, you can experiment. Instead of beef, how about trying venison, turkey, fish.

How to make hot wild venison jerky

This hot wild jerky recipe is very easy to make and tastes as good or better then paying 10 dollars for a bag of store bought jerky.

After going shopping,my wife asked me to buy some store bought jerky,but after looking at the prices,I decided I would make my own.

I have wild game meat from the Deer I processed last year in the freezer and have to start eating it or I will be over loaded again,since it is hunting season here in a few days.

I thawed out three nice steaks and cut strips from them 1/8 inch thick.

I then place the strips in a bowl.

Add 1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce,or teryaki sauce.

Sprinkle with red peppers.(dried)

Sprinkle with garlic salt.

Sprinkle with ground red pepper spice.

Add 1/8 cup Emeril's roasted vegetable marinade.

Mix with your hands these ingredients.

I have an electric smoker I use to cook all sorts of foods on,so I place three chunks of apple wood to give the meat a little smoke flavor.Then I will fill the water dish full of water for moisture.

Now I will place aluminum foil on the grills and punch holes in it to let the smoke and heat through.

Now lay the strips of jerky so that they don't touch on the foil.

Now you will the cook jerky for 2 to 3 hours,checking to make sure it is done after two hours time.

I cook mine for three hours,then I know it is done.

You will not buy jerky from the store after you try this recipe out.

The jerky has a little smoke flavor plus is hot and tasty.

You can also buy jerky seasoning in a package and make your own jerky,but I prefer my own recipe.
You can also use beef with this recipe if you prefer.
