Sweet & Spicy Venison Jerky

This super tasty venison jerky is sweet, smoky, and spicy.


Prep Time: 15mins

Cook Time: 4hrs

Additional Time: 1 day

Serving 8


  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce
  • ½ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  •  cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons liquid smoke flavoring
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 pound venison, cut into 1/4 thick strips


Step 1

Whisk teriyaki sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, soy sauce, liquid smoke, pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, lemon juice, paprika, and hot pepper sauce together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add venison strips and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours, stirring it a few times as it marinates to ensure even absorption of marinade.

Step 2

Remove venison strips from marinade and squeeze off excess. Discard remaining marinade. Arrange venison on the racks of a food dehydrator in a single layer.

Step 3

Dry venison on High until dry but still pliable, about 4 hours. Jerky should bend without breaking. Store jerky in an airtight container or in a resealable plastic bag.


Oven Option

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place a pan or aluminum foil on the oven floor to catch drippings. Arrange venison on a wire rack in a single layer and dehydrate in the preheated oven until desired texture is achieved, 6 to 8 hours.
