Prep Time: 30 min.Cowboy Cooking Recipes from
Marinate Time: 24 hrs. or more
Dehydration Time: up to 6 hrs.


  •    1 large roast (elk, deer, moose, or any red meat)

  •    4 Tablespoon liquid smoke

  •    3 Tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

  •    2 teaspoons seasoned salt

  •       Pepper to taste

  • 1/2 cup water, or more to cover meat.


  1. Slice meat evenly and thinly (you will find it easier to slice when partially frozen). Cutting across the grain will make the meat easier to chew.  In a bowl, combine roast, liquid smoke, soy sauce, brown sugar, seasoned salt, pepper, and water.

  2. Cover and marinate for 24 hours or more, stirring occasionally. (You find that well marinated meat will lose all pink color.)

  3. Dry in a dehydrator or drying in the oven for about 6 hours on lowest setting, with the door slightly open. Turn once after a couple of hours.
