Default Smart's Deer Jerky

Been asked for my easy recipe several times the past two weeks and realized I didn't have a thread in the recipe section I can tell folks to reference. Evidently I have it placed in the middle of several threads on the ATC and its hard to locate.

Snakelover made a quick and easy reference in an image after I shared it with him so I'm just going to post it here and add some pics. It's been a good recipe me through the years plus it is easy and fairly cheap. Enjoy!

Note...you can mix and match what you want for the Allegro bottle flavors. I like the Hickory so I do 3 and 1 Some folks have added a 5th bottle too to make it a little "richer/hotter" in flavor and do 3 Hickory and 2 Hot n Spicy

I made made my best batch yesterday. I have the same Walmart dehydrator and I have been over drying it. I have always set it on 155 and went for about 8 hours. My daughter told me to pull it after 5 and it was perfect. I used the Eastman Walmart jerky seasoning and a little of the Aleggro Flavorizer/Tenderizer just because it was already open, then just sprinkled on the red pepper flakes.

Allegro is some great stuff. I have made jerky with straight hot and spicy and also teriyaki. Always turns out great. Vacuum seal and freeze mine in 8 oz or so packages. I will be trying this blended recipe very soon. Never thought to mix flavors ...

That's pretty much how I do mine. 20lbs of finished jerky does not last long.
Once my wife took 10lbs to school and gave it away to several teachers. Since then I get calls every year with folks wanting me to make it for them.

Default Where to buy Allegro marinade?

Where do you find the Allegro marinades? I found Hot & Spicy at Walmart.com, with free in-store pickup. I've made 2 batches with that, and like it. But, I would like to try Hickory Smoke and other flavors. Preferably without paying for shipping, because I'm cheap.

I buy it at my local Walmart in store...same aisle as ketchup......and at Kroger. Never had a problem finding it, GameTamer or HotNSpicy.

Thanks for the replies. I found it at Walmart.com, but the website says it's not available at any stores within 50 miles of me. I'll have to try looking for it on the shelf. Maybe the website is wrong. We also shop at Kroger quite a bit, so I'll try there, too. Appreciate the suggestions.

Been using Allegro marinades for years. I have always used the teriyaki or the hot and spicy. I add a bottle of Colgins Hickory Liquid smoke as it is on 1.29 for the bottle to give it a smokey taste. I look in the bargain bin at Randalls and get some really good deals on meat I can use for jerky.

The Allegro hickory smoke adds a good smoke flavor

Have to say. I made some of this with Turkey and hog for our Colorado trip. It was a hit. Everybody loved it. I will not make jerky any other way from now on. It was easy also.

I make mine with backstrap also. I too am about out of last year's backstrap. I take between 10-15 deer per year (MLD) and usually give most of the meat away except for the backstraps.
