Smoked Venison Jerky Recipe

Smoked venison jerky is made by slicing venison into one inch strips. Drop the strips into a boiling salt brine. This brine should be just as strong as you can make it. Keep stirring in salt until it won't dissolve anymore. Let the venison strips boil about three minutes, remove, drain and place in your smoke box. Build a small fire in the stove and when it's blazing good smother it with a double handful of slightly damp green hickory chips or sawdust.
