Default Venison on the Traeger

Been awhile since I tried to make jerky. My buddy asked me to try again and dropped off a bunch of venison. I plan on doing on the Traeger smoke setting but not sure.

Anyone made jerky on a Traeger before, and if so, what temp and for how long?

I'm also in need of a good marinade / recipe for the jerky. ..

Thanks,
Gerry

Making Jerky is really easy and you don't need a dehydrator to make great jerky, a low temp in the smoker is all that you need, that way

you get smoked meat flavor without having to use the dreadful liquid smoke..

I use a whole eye of round beef roast, trim of what little fat is there and run it through the deli slicer. Marinate and cure overnight

then lay on racks to dry until tacky. I smoke for 2 hours with cold smoke then raise the smoker to 110 until it is dry.

The finished product should not be brittle and break when folded in half. When folding it should create a distinct white line where it was

folded without breaking in half



Mild Jerky
This recipe is for 5 pounds venison / beef.

1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt (I use 1/2 tsp)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 Tablespoons of Tender Quick®

Make sure that the sugar and salt are completely dissolved before pouring the marinade over the venison / beef.
Marinate at least one day or and up to two days. Remove from marinade and let air dry on racks until "Tacky" to the touch.

Cold smoke for 1-2 hours (no heat), then raise smoker temperature to 100° to 110° and smoke until dry but slightly pliable.

1 tablespoon of onion powder
2 Tablespoons of Morton® Tender Quick® curing mix

Make sure that the sugar and salt are completely dissolved before pouring the marinade over the venison.
