This is my favorite jerky recipe for venison. Makes about 1/4 lb jerky.
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. oregano, crushed
1 tsp. rub sage
1 tsp. chili powder
Mix all the ingredients and coat the meat with the spices then place on dehydrator tray.
If you rather marinate the venison then add 1 tbs Worcestershire and 1 tbs Liquid Smoke to spices.
I have the 4 tray Excalibur Dehydrator from my mother. She had it for about 10 years or more and it still works like new.
