Russ' Moose Jerky:

At the end of hunting season, you will need some recipes for your meat.  Here is a recipe for some great, homemade Moose Jerky.  Time to clean out your freezer, enjoy!

  • Moose Roasts or Steaks
  • Hi Mountain seasoning
Simple Prep: Take out your moose roasts or steaks and completely thaw out in your refrigerator.  Cut your jerky strips with the Hi Mountain Jerky Cutter (available at Island Outfitters,) the thicker the cut, the more moist your jerky will be.  Once cut, pat both sides with paper towel. Follow the cure to seasoning ratio, mix with the supplied shaker and season both sides.  If courageous, smear hot sauce on one side! Stack 4-5 slices of prepared jerky and wrap tightly with plastic wrap.  Place in the fridge for 48 hours, to seal in the seasoning. Smoking Day: Using your smoker, do a "cook slow and low" process.  Use a pan of alder chips, or two pans if you want a smokey taste.  Cook your thick slices for 8 hours, adjusting on thickness.  And finally, enjoy! *Island Outfitters has a wide selection of Hi Mountain seasonings for all types of sausage and jerky.  Our staffs favorite is Inferno and Cracked Pepper N' Garlic.
