Can I make deer jerky in my oven? or do I have to buy a dehydrator.<----that spelling doesn't look right.

I have seen recipes for making jerky in the oven but I don't have a recipe. Do a google search for oven jerky I am sure you'll find one.

I've had jerky that was made in the oven but leave the door to the oven OPENED SLIGHTLY. Doesn't seem to cure right with the door closed. Just set it on the lowest setting and let it sit.

ive seen recipes for oven jerky that from what i was told turns out good. alot of them are made in a gas oven with just the pilot on. as bullfiddle said just do a google search for it. cooks.com has a few on there.

Default Yes!

Get some racks let the meat marinate in what ever ya taste is for.
Set the oven on 200degrees and cook for 8 to 10 hours.
Thats the way i use to do it until i went ta wally world and bought 2 dehidrators.

I make all my jerky in the gas oven and it turns out like the stuff you get at the store. Marinate for at least 48 hours and then put on jerky racks, turn oven on to around 180F and let meat sit for 2 hrs. with the door just cracked open.

Don't worry about the meat not being cooked enough. The jerky cure does just that, it cures the meat. You just want to get rid of some of the moisture.

any questions just pm me.

Let me know how you like the jerky. I think you will be pleased with how well it turns out.

Store your jerky in an empty cereal book. DON'T STORE IT IN A ZIPLOCK BAGGIE. It will mold because of the moisture that is still in the meat.

Smokers can be bought cheap. Its good wood chips, good jerkey cure, and good cuts on the meat that will make your jerky stand out.

I have a buddy that just picked up a smoker for $20 at a yard sale.

For home use, any of the small under $100 smokers will do just fine. I have even seen some made from barels and a heating element.

i tried it in the oven once and it turned out ok, i hung the strips of meat from the rack with toothpicks and put a drip pan under it so the wife didn't yel at me. i used liquid smoke for the smoke flavor and was happy with the results

I use season kits that I get from the outdoor stores. Mix it up and let it sit in the meat for 24-48 hour. I put the meat mix in large ziplock bags and take it out every couple hours and give it a slosh around in the bag. I then set oven to 180-200 degrees. I use an oven thermometer. Put the meat on drying racks with drip pan. I then put a wedge in the door so that it is only open about 1/2 inch. Then "cook" for 2-2 1/2 hours for 1/4 inch think cut. Ground meats use more mix and sometimes take a little longer.
