    Do you prefer your home made jerky if so want to share the recipe? or store bought and which one?

    i prefer homemade, but don't make it as often as i used to. I just marinade in a ziplock in a salty briney liquid made from A1, soy sauce, worcheshire, beer and/or whiskey, hot sauce, etc. with some garlic powder and pepper. I rarely follow recipes. After 24 hours in the marinade it goes in the dehydrator for about 5-6 hours. I borrow one. If you dont have access, you can use your oven set to its lowest temp. It helps if you have baking racks so it has airflow 360 degrees.

        I buy the stuff at wallyworld. Cheapest around, tastes good and I don't have to make it. Can't remember the brand.

          Be careful Del, if it comes from wallyworld it may (likely) contain melamine and/or lead, for reasons unknown to me.

            I make my own at home using hamburger...I made a batch this week using moose burger but any meat will do...All you need is a jerky gun (found at any outdoor store) and a food dehydrator...this is a basic recipe that leaves room for your own personal preferences...recipe is as follows:

            1 lb. ground meat (venison, elk, moose, etc)
            2 tsp. salt (canning is best)
            1/4 tsp. pepper
            1 tsp. chili powder
            1 tsp. garlic powder
            1 tsp. onion powder
            1 tbsp liquid smoke

            Mix all the ingredients WELL and refrigerate for a few hours...Mix again and load your jerky gun...I like to make strips approx 8" long...dry according to your dryers specs and enjoy...you can also add or subtract different flavors of liquid smoke to your own personal taste, I like the hickory but mesquite is also good...

              I keep it simple vinegar, natural salt, fresh black pepper, cayenne pepper. Brine it for a day. Smoke very mildly at low temp for an hour.Finish it off in the dehydrator.

                  I made venison jerky from a Cabela's mix at a girlfriend's house. She came home, took a whiff, and forbid me from ever doing it again. Tasted great, though.

                      My secret ingredient is brown sugar. Gives it a sweet glaze. Jerky doesn't last long in my house.

                            My kid makes deer and elk jerky from ground meat much like Kingfisher's recipe. The kid does add brown sugar and some red pepper which give its a "sweet and hot" flavor. He uses a dehydrator that he bought at a yard sale which was just like new and he had about worn it out. The jerky usually does not last long either especially if some of his buddies show up.

                              I like store bought jerky at Walmart I get Jack Links they have many different good flavors but I think my favorite is the peppered.
