Elk Jerky

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Elk Back strap Jerky:

  • 2 bottles Soy Sauce
  • 1 TBL Onion Powder
  • 1 TBL Granulated Garlic
  • 2 TBL Red Pepper Flakes
  • Cut meat in jerky size pieces
  • Brine in Soy Sauce mixture overnight in cool fridge or outside– stir every 2 hrs
  • Next day, paper-towel off excess liquid
  • Place on non-stick sprayed smoker racks - 200F
  • Pull pieces as they dry in the smoker
  • Vacuum pack

 

Enjoy Elk Jerky – this recipe is really good and I have made it for years.

 

I have been so busy this year with work I haven’t even gone hunting. I haven’t posted much on SMF either (did some cheese and that’s about it) – the elk I have was from a trip 2 years ago (looked great in the vacuum packs)

 

Time to get the smoker going and relax a little during the holidays.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!

 

More pics to come.

 

 

 

Using the excellent outdoor refrigerator - I love days like this for preparing meat.

That's a GREAT idea! I never thought of making jerky out of Elf's.

I am sure Bear has already made them and has a DYI! LOL  :biggrin:
