  1. Cut your deer meat across the grain into 1/4" strips and make them about 1" wide.
  2. Mix all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir well for 5 minutes.
  3. Separate your meat into two evenly filled gallon size bags and add half the marinade to each bag. Move the meat around with your fingers by lightly squeezing the bags so that each piece gets a good even coating of marinade. Marinate the meat for 24 hours.
  4. Remove the strips of meat from each bag and lightly pat down with a paper towel before laying them on your oven/dehydrator racks.
  5. Sprinkle the meat to taste with the additional 3 Tbs of black pepper (more if you want more pepper flavor) and dehydrate for 5-7 hours or until done. Enjoy your peppered jerky!
