2 Pound venison, trimmed

1 Teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1/2 Teaspoon onion powder

1 Teaspoon granulated garlic

1 Teaspoon salt

1/2 Cup soy sauce

1/2 Cup Worcestershire sauce

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

2 Teaspoon black pepper

1 Teaspoon paprika

2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 Teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 habanero peppers, minced


1 With a sharp knife, slice the venison into 1/4 inch thick slices. Trim any fat or connective tissue.

2 Add all ingredients except venison to a bowl and whisk. Add venison slices and mix to combine.

3 Transfer contents of bowl to a large resealable bag and seal removing as much air as possible. Place in fridge to marinate overnight.

4 When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

5 Remove the venison from the marinade and discard marinade.

6 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.

7 Smoke for 4 to 5 hours or until the jerky is dry but still chewy and somewhat pliant when you bend it.

8 Remove from grill and transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool for 1 hour. Store in an airtight container or resealable bag in refrigerator. Enjoy!
