Smoked Spicy Venison Jerky






20 mins

5 hrs



2 lb venison, trimmed

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp granulated garlic

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 CUP Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp brown sugar

2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp paprika

2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp red pepper flakes

2 Habanero peppers, minced


With a sharp knife, slice the venison into 1/4” thick slices. Trim any fat or connective tissue.
Add all ingredients besides venison to a bowl and whisk. Add venison slices and mix to combine.
Transfer contents of bowl to a large zip top bag and seal removing as much air as possible. Place in fridge to marinate overnight.
When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Remove the venison from the marinade and discard marinade.
Arrange the meat in a single layer directly on the grill grate. For extra spicy jerky, sprinkle with more cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and black pepper.
Smoke for 4 to 5 hours, or until the jerky is dry but still chewy and somewhat pliant when you bend it.
Remove from grill and transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 1 hour. Store in an airtight container or zip top bag in refrigerator. Enjoy!
*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
