I cut up a hind leg from one of the deer I shot this archery season, originally I was just going to make another batch of my tradtional recipe jerky, instead I decided to make more of a kippered steak kinda thing, I did thick cut (1/2") and used teriaki sauce, ground coriander, garam masala(middle eastern spices) brown sugar, morton tender quick, and my favorite seasoning-Konriko creole seasoning. I'm going to let it sit overnight and put it in my little chief tomorrow, I figure about 4-6 hours then into the dehydrator just to get the texture I want. I'll let you know how it turns out. If anyone wants to try my regular recipe it is: 5 lbs beef or venison cut thin 1/2 C brown sugar 1 C soy sauce 2 tbls liquid smoke(if you are using a dehydrator) liberal application of Konriko brand creole seasoning(found in most grocery stores. pour everything on the meat, mix to coat, store overnight or 24 hours in a glass dish(or stainless steel bowl) don't rinse, put wet meat on smoker racks or dehydrator racks, sprinkle with more Konriko seasoning, smoke until texture/flavor desired, or dry in dehydrator. I think you'll like this recipe. I've been using it for years.
