Newman’s Jerky

The perfect snack! A little bit sweet, a little bit spicy and oh, so good!


  • 4 lbs. ground venison or lean beef
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 4 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp red pepper
  • 4 Tbsp accent seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp seasoning salt
  • 2 Tbsp garlic
  • 2 Tbsp liquid smoke


  1. Freeze the meat slightly. This will make it easier to cut.
  2. Cut the meat thin, then mix with the spices.
  3. Let it sit in the refrigerator for several days (turning over each day).
  4. Fire up the Memphis to 200+ degrees F and cook for several hours. Cooking your jerky longer (around 6 hours) will make it crunchy, while cooking it for less time (around 4 hours) will make it chewy.
