View Full Version : My favorite goose jerky

11-07-2000, 01:53 AM
Here is my favorite jerky recipe.
Slice goose breasts about a quarter inch thick. Let sit in marinade in a covered dish in the fridge for about 3-4 hours, then dehydrate and rotate trays every hour.
Qty. 2.5 lbs sliced meat
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 bulb fresh garlic
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup (or bbq sauce)
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

I usually take a couple of bags into work and watch their faces when I tell them what it is after they have eaten a half bag. Everyone loves it, even the city/anti-hunting group.

I came home from work today to find a package at my door. Go figure it was some of Ganderman's goose jerky. Man, that's some tasty stuff. Anyone that makes jerky that good can slide on his choice of underware...LOL...

Thanks Ganderman !!!

Next time add a little ginger, coriander, and anise - and a lot more garlic.

only problem with this recipe is that I cant make the stuff fast enough. Wish hunting season lasted all year. Oh well, guess I better quit sharing the stuff. Thanks for the great choice.

sounds good i'll have to give it a try:TT:

01-07-2006, 03:50 PM
Everybody seems to really like this recipe some I am going to have to give it a try. I hope it taste good a venison as goose I want to make some of both.

Four years of this thread being read it most be good

Toss in some crushed red pepper and/or a little cajun seasoning. A little maple syrup or honey and teryaki adds to it as well.

I like the smoker over the dehydrator, cheap wall mart special, but it has seen some serious jerky in its time.

09-23-2007, 04:32 PM
very similar to my recipe, but...

add more brown suger, a handfull of rock salt, some molasses...

then, if you want heat...a pepper; "habinero-only one" or a couple serranos, or crushed pepper.

and a can of crushed pineapple...(secret)

been working on jerky for many years, and this is the bomb....
I use a smoker however, not that I dont have a dehydrator, it just tastes better...apple or cherry

works with geese/duck, venison, steelhead/salmon equally well.:cool:

i'll have to try that

10-03-2007, 01:15 PM
Holy shit,

This post is over a year old.

Now it's almost 8 years old !:TT: ...and still goin'.... hafta make some Energizer Bunny Jerky.:rof:

I'm gonna give it a go. It sounds pretty good, and all the testimonials can't be wrong.

Looks like a winner of a recipe. I've been using a dry jerky seasoning on my goose and I'm not happy with the results. Dry and not very flavorful. I smoke mine in a bradley smoker with hickory wood for 3 hrs at 200. I'll have to try this one as it sounds like a winner.

12-25-2008, 06:33 PM
Does this recipe work for smoking the jerky too?

Just received a SmokeHouse electric smoker from Cabelas for Christmas and wondering if I can make some great goose jerky in it.

09-24-2010, 08:54 PM
sounds Great!!! I have always used the Back woods stuff from LEM/Bass Pro Shops and I have not had a bad batch yet ....I would love to not have to buy it !!!
just wondering ....all the stuff I have used uses a cure and I notice this has non....how does it kill the micro org. and bacteria???
and how does it keep from spoiling if you are lucky enough to hide it from everyone lol
Thanks Jonathan

Banded the soy sauce is loaded with sodium plus he adds some more salt so that is what would be called the "cure" I use a different recipe I got here but its the same principal as soy sauce is a big part of it.
