Yea- they are a little milder than duck.

We made some last year and enjoyed it. Be sure to remove all the fat- it has a green/grassy taste to me.

~ 1 1/2 to 2 lbs lean boneless meat, partially frozen
~ 1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
~ 1/4 cup soy sauce
~ 1/4 tsp onion powder
~ 1/2 tsp garlic powder
~ 1/2 tsp ground pepper
~ 1 tsp hickory smoked salt(or seasoning salt or garlic salt-use what you like)
~ 1 to 2 small bottles liquid smoke
*~few drops green tabasco if you like hot

rim all fat and ligaments from meat. Slice the meat as thinly as possible. In a bowl combine remaining ingredients and stir until dissolved. Add the meat and mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Shake the excess liquid from the meat and arrange in a shallow pan or cookie sheet. *Optional* After placing the meat on the cookie sheet, sprinkle it with coarse ground black pepper for a little spice. Dry the meat in a 150 to 200 degree oven until dry and brown.

If you want some more kick add some cayene powder to the mix.
Remember that the meat will continue to dry and harden a bit after you are done, so don't over do it.
I have marinated from 8-36hrs, i really don't see much difference in that range.

I went to 4 local supermarkets and none of them carry hickory smoked salt or liquid smoke.

Do i have to go to a specialty store?

Check the isle with BBQ sauce, Texas pete, and Creole seasoning. Liquid smoke is in a little container and usually on the top.

I found the liquid smoke at Albertson's they only carried one brand which was

Wrights's All Natural and I went with the Hickory seasoning liquid smoke.

the Jerky turned out great. I took some of my jerky I made to my buddy's xmas party and everyone liked it.

the jerky did not taste like duck at all it did have the hickory taste I guess that's why no one didn't believed it was duck jerky.

Thanks for the jerky receipt :thumbsup:
