Grandpa’s Venison Jerky – Dehydrator

3/4 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon liquid smoke

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 pound venison strips

Mix all ingredients together except venison strips. Allow flavors to blend at least 15 minutes. Add strips. Marinate at least one hour. For a longer marinating time, place in refrigerator in a covered container or an air-tight plastic bag. Remove from marinade and place in your NESCO® Dehydrator on dehydrator trays. Dry at 155° F. for 4 to 15 hours, depending on how thick meat is cut.
