Colonel Stivers' Beef, Deer, Elk or Moose Jerky
2 lbs. of flank steak
2/3 cup of soy sauce
2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons of seasoning salt (recommend Lawry's)

Slice flank steak diagonally with the grain of the meat into very thin slices (If slightly frozen it slices more easily).  Combine ingredients and marinate meat overnight or 12 hours.  Be sure all pieces are covered (coated) with marinade.  Drain excess marinade.  Place meat on paper towels to soak up marinade. Meat should be squeezed as dry as possible in paper towels.  Place individual pieces of meat on rack in oven at 140 to 160 degrees for seven to 12 hours, or until meat is dry throughout.  Leave oven door ajar (slightly open) during the drying process.  Meat can also be hung in the oven by placing a wooden toothpick in each piece and strung from the rack.  Store finished jerky in an airtight container.  It keeps for several months, but it is likely that it will be consumed by the master hunter, kids, or the cook within a few days.

Quick Jerky
Take sticks of deer bologna and slice about 1/4" thick and soak in liquid smoke, soy sauce, garlic salt, all amounts to your taste for about 1/2 hr.  Put meat in food dehydrator and shake on black pepper to your liking.  Dry your meat for about 2 1/2 hours or until meat looks dry and red.  When meat cools it will get very dark and chewy.  Good to take hunting and fishing.

Blade's Jerky
All of the following are for 5 lbs of venison, or work great with ground beef (90% lean or higher).

Mix all of the ingredients together that are listed in the recipes and then marinade for 12-24 hrs.
All the ingredients can be adjusted to taste.
I like black pepper, so the amounts listed below might be reduced to 2 -3 tsp.,
for those that don't have the same palate for its' flavor.

EZ Style:
5 tsp. salt    1 1/2 cup soy sauce     5 tsp. black pepper     1 cup red wine vinegar     1/4 cup brown sugar

Yankee Style:
5 tsp. salt     1/3 cup Worcestershire Sauce     1 finely chopped onion     5 tsp. black pepper

Baja Style:
5 tsp. salt     5 tsp. black pepper     2 Tbs.. coriander     1 1/2 tsp. chili powder     1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp. turmeric     1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin

Oriental Style:
5 tsp. salt      5 tsp. black pepper     1 large minced onion     5 cloves pressed garlic     1 cup brown sugar     1/3 cup soy sauce     1 1/4 cup red wine     1 1/2 cup pineapple juice

1/4 tsp. powdered onion (hot or mild)

These ought to give a little variety, and obviously, some like 'em and some don't. Some of these have been handed down over generations, received from friends, modified to the cooks taste, renamed with the times, experimented with, used not only as food, but as a poultice, medicine, leather, aphrodisiacs, and who knows what else. I've got others, but will save for another time. Have fun with these.

Jerky Time!!
I use 3 different types of meat, but you can easily use your imagination.  1 pound of chicken breast
1 pound of pork
1 pound of beef, 
1/4 cup of soya sauce
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of dijonnaise from Hellemans
1 tablespoon of Louisiana hot sauce
3 tablespoons of ketchup
Salt and pepper
1 clove of garlic minced
1 onion minced
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
2 tablespoons of liquid smoke (found in grocery stores)

Cut meat into strips, remember that the meat will shrink. Mix seasoning together, and add to meat. If you have a convection oven, put the temp at 150 degrees. Put the strips of meat on a rack, that you will put over a pan. Place in oven, place a wooden spoon, so the oven door will not close completely.  It takes between 6-8 hours. Turn the strips from time to time. Once the dehydration process is over, and the strips cool off, you may keep them in a glass jar or in the fridge for a long time. If you have a regular oven , put the temp at the lowest. You will need to keep the oven door open wider, turning the strips even more often, and the cooking time will probably vary. Hope you enjoy this jerky.

The Jerky Marinate
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
4 tblsp liquid smoke
1/2 oz bottled garlic juice 
or liquid from two crushed garlic cloves
2 lbs lean meat
Course ground black pepper
Louisiana hot sauce (optional)
1 level tsp. salt
1/2 cup dark brown sugar

 After eliminating as much exterior fat as possible, cut a beef eye-of-round (London broil will do) into long strips approximately 1/3 to 1/2 inch square (slice with the grain of the meat).  (Deer, moose, elk, and caribou are also fine, but use lean cuts and slice with the grain.)  Mix all marinate ingredients, except the pepper. Use the following formula for the hot sauce:
   1 shake for pussycats

          2 shakes for good amigos
               4 shakes for tough hombres
                      19 shakes for snotty neighbors and former spouses
 Place marinate and meat in a zip lock bag. Squeeze out the air and seal.  Place in a bowl/pan in the refrigerator for 2 - 24 hours (longer gives a deeper flavor).

 Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil and place wire cake racks in it.  Spray the racks with a non-stick cooking spray (Pam, etc.). Lay the marinated meat strips across the racks and sprinkle liberally with very coarse ground black pepper. Place in an electric stove oven for about 7-8 hours on the very lowest warm setting (I like 11pm to am).  Additionally, the oven door should be cracked open an inch or so to allow the moisture to escape (a metal kitchen spoon does fine).  Overcoming (drying) will make the jerky dry and brittle, so be careful.

 The beef in this recipe can also be dried nicely in a dehydrator.

 This jerky needs no refrigeration for a least two weeks. After that, I don't how long it will keep because it always gets eaten too fast. However, I would use common sense. If green 'things' (literal interpretation: mold) start growing on it, toss it.

Tips:
 1. Before slicing, put the meat in the freezer until just firm (2 hr.); it will slice much more easily and uniformly.
 2. You can slice the strips of meat thin and wide, like bacon, if you like. However, don't make them too thin or they will be crisp.
 3. An electric food slicer save time and gives a uniform thickness to the meat. Be sure not to set it too thin.
 4. Make a small batch the first time and see whether your taste will want more/less garlic, salt, brown sugar, etc. The heaviness' of the  Worcestershire  sauce can be diluted with water, if need be.
 5. Store in a zip-lock bag for freshness.
 6. Be sure to cut WITH THE GRAIN of the meat when slicing!
 7. Hide some if you expect to have any the next day.  It will go fast!!!

Jerky Marinade
I've been making jerky for about three years, only when I get a wild hair to do so:).  I've found this marinade to work great! Everyone that tries my jerky or eats a steak off my grill loves it.  Plus it's so simple I don't know why anyone else has not sent it to you.
It consists of  "4" equal parts of
1. worcestershire sauce
2. teriyaki sauce
3. soy sauce
4. water or beer

For jerky I lay the meat on the trays and season to taste with black pepper and garlic and a lil' white pepper  When my wife wants some I use  the white pepper and garlic for a lil' brown sugar. I know this doesn't sound like much but trust me ya gotta try it it really is great.

Jerky
I tend to just throw a little of whatever I have in to make jerky.
However...this combination of ingredients lends the meat an excellent flavor. Wouldn't know what to call it since I made it up. Take 1/2 c. of worchestire sauce and 1/2 c. of Teriyaki sauce. Any brands will do. Add 2 tbsps. of McCormick montreal steak seasoning, some salt, garlic powder, coarse ground pepper, lemon pepper, and cayenne if you like it hot. If you like hot/sweet then throw in some brown sugar too. I don't measure these other ingrediants. I just add till it looks and smells good. Cut meat into thin strips and marinate over night in the fridge.

Drain in colander and then on paper towels. Place in dehydrator and don't forget to turn and rotate trays every couple of hours. Should be ready the next day depending on how thick the slices are and what kind of dehydrator you have. I have a 4 tray and it is usually ready in 24 hours. The oven is quicker from what I have been reading but I have never tried it. You can cut down on the liquid and grind the meat with these ingredients as well and send them through a "jerky shooter" too.

Tastes great!! I don't know how many pounds this makes, I only know it is about a 1/4 a deers entire hindquarters. It is also more than will fit on four racks so I just leave the rest marinating in the fridge until time to make another batch. Good luck!

Hot DAWG deer jerky

This is a marinade I made up several years ago. It is not for the faint of heart. However you can alter the spice acceding to personal taste.
This will marinate about 10 pounds of venison.

Hot DAWG deer jerky:
1 TB mint sauce
20 shakes Frank's red hot sauce
2 TB Lea & Perrins steak sauce
1 bottle Allegro hot & spicy marinade
2 TB molasses
1/4 cup ground cayenne pepper
1/8 cup garlic salt 
1/8 cup onion salt
2 TB seasoned meat tenderizer
1 tsp. dried mint crushed
20 shakes teriyaki sauce
3 TB McCormick Caribbean jerk seasoning
3 TB brown sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
20 shakes worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients in a plastic jug and shake well.
Place in fridge overnight and occasionally shake a few more times.
Take a deer backstrap and slice into 1/4 inch thick strips going with the grain. A fillet knife works well for this. Place venison in marinade and 
shake well to coat. Place in fridge overnight.  Remove from marinade and place in dehydrator for approximately 5 hours.
