Making venison jerky can be a fun and fulfilling family project. And the best part is, you can eat the result! There are many venison jerky recipes located on the site and I urge you to try different recipes and methods to see what you like best. It is not an exact science and half the fun is trying different things. It may not always work, so when I am testing new venison jerky recipes, I tend to start with small batches. Venison is a rare commodity and I am lucky enough to live in an area that it is easy to obtain. I am however very careful with the product and treat it with care so I do not waste an ounce of the venison meat. It is fairly inexpensive to get started with this. You can use your home oven to make many of the venison jerky recipes on the site, or purchase a food dehydrator or smoker. Each method will result in different results. The main thing to keep in mind is to have fun when making venison jerky recipes!
