have used it on goose and venison, and it's yummy. 5 lbs ground meat 1/4 C soy sauce 1/8 C Worcester sauce 1/8C water 2 tsp Liquid Smoke 2 TBS salt 2tsp black pepper 2TBS onion powder 2TBS garlic powder Place meat in a large glass bowl Mix all the sauces & spices together then pour over the ground meat Mix the marinade thoroughly into the meat by hand (like mixing up meatloaf) refrigerate for 2 hours to marinade Now, if you have a jerky shooter, load it up and squirt the strips onto the trays of your dehydrator. The way I did it before I had a jerky gun was to roll the meat out between 2 sheets of wax paper with a rolling pin so that it's approximately 1.4" thick, then cut into strips. Run in the dehydrator for 8-10 hours until a strip cracks when you bend it. It'll have the same consistency as the Slim Jim brand beef jerky. To insure there is no resident bacteria, I pile them on a cookie sheet and stick them in a 175 degree oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before packaging in a zip-lock or jar so that there is no condensation. Enjoy!!!! These will keep well for a week or so at room temp, for up to a month in the fridge (if they last that long) or indefinitely in the freezer. Never lasts more than a week in our house!
