    anyone have a hot and spicy jerky recipe close to uncle mikes from walnut creek ohio,been trying to get it right but cant seem to find that nitch that I am missing,also looking for hot Italian sausage recipe,willing to give them all a try!!!!
  2. Here is my last jerky. You can spice it up with more pepper.


    Well it is time to make some Bambi jerky. I had the hind leg in the freezer from last hunting season.

    So i pulled it out thinking sausage??? or jerky??? well i decided jerky. However i could still change

    my mind. Here is what i have done so far. I boned the leg. Placed in freezer to firm it up. Sliced

    about 3/16" thick. Give or take. If it was thick. I would flatten it with the palm of my hand. Then i made

    up a batch of brine. Brought water to boil. Added all ingredients and simmered 15 min. the allowed to

    cool. Then in the project fridge.


    1 boned deer leg = 4269 g or 9.4 pound

    1/2 gallon water

    Cure #1 = 15g

    Kosher salt = 61g

    Dark Brown sugar = 43g

    Onion powder = 11g

    Ground dried Tabasco peppers = 3g

    Black pepper = 3g

    Worcestershire Sauce = 1 1/4 cup

    Soy sauce = 3/4 cup

    Honey (from my bees) = 1/4 cup

    Garlic = 8 cloves

    I hope this helps.

    Happy smoken.

  3. I would marinate about 3 Lbs in 3 cups of Soy sauce and 1 cup of brown sugar, add 1 cup Liquid Smoke if not using a smoker.  For heat add crushed Chilli Peppers or Cayenne pepper.  Then dehydrate or smoke, if no Liquid Smoke was used, until done to the dryness you want.
