Venison Jerky Preparation Methods

What is venison jerky? In its most basic form, it's salted and dried deer meat. Marinades and dry seasonings, with spices, herbs and other flavorings improve the texture and flavor of the meat.

Venison jerky can be made using slices of whole muscle or from ground venison. The sliced and ground meat jerky recipes on this page will make some fine tasting snacks.

Sliced Venison Jerky

Whole-muscle jerky is made by cutting the deer meat into quarter inch thick slices, adding flavor with a marinade or a dry jerky seasoning mix, and then drying in the oven or in a dehydrator.

Ground Venison Jerky

Ground venison jerky combines ground deer meat with seasoning mix that includes curing agents and flavorings. The ground meat jerky is formed into strips or round snack sticks with a jerky gun or jerky shooter. It can even be hand formed into the desired shape.
