Deer Jerky

deer roast or steaks, (1 1/2- 2 lbs.)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. Accent (MSG)
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
Liquid smoke (If desired )

With meat partially frozen, slice (with the grain) into strips about 1/8" thick. Combine all other ingredients well and place meat and marinade in a gallon size ziploc bag and marinate meat in fridge overnight (24 hours), turning bag several times to make sure all slices marinate well.

Spread single layer on oven rack (or hang), using foil underneath to catch any drips. Crack oven door and set on lowest temp (about 140). Let dry for 5-8 hours. Should be dry and bend, but not break. Becomes dryer when cold. Store in airtight container or ziploc bag, but do not refrigerate.
