    Smoked venison & Jerky

    Hey guys/gals. Thinking of buying a dehydrator and doing some venison jerky. Anyone tried this? Also I might give smoked venison a crack with the front quarters etc. Any tips for doing this as I can imagine it drying out fairly quickly.

    Haven't done it with veni yet, but gave making beef biltong a crack in a cheapy dehydrator I bought. Just cranked it on 70 degrees (IIRC) for 16 hours and turned out amazing! Heaps cheaper than the $60/kg from the butcher here!

    Haven't done it myself. You can do it in the oven if you can get it low enough.
    This website is a great resource:

    Bacon, Jerky, Hams, etc

    I've done venison jerky a couple of times and it was great
    I just marinated it overnight and stuck it in the dehydrator for around 12 hours
    That's the last batch I done with some whitetail

    Southernredneck, that looks awesome! Looking at past attempts at jerky it looks straight forward, however smoked venison looks to be a bit more on the tricky side. I'll post my findings under the cooking section where this was suppose to be.

    There is a few threads on jerky and biltong in the cooking section already.

    I tried hot smoking venison steak...most definitaly do NOT recommend.

    Cold smoke steak if at all.

    I have done both in a home made cold smoker,(below 80f) you will need to brine if you are cold smoking big joints, for jerky I just made up a flavoured dry salt rub or soy sauce brine, cut your jerky a max of 1/4 inch.
