“I went on a bit of a tangent when I created this turkey jerky marinade... I used some typical jerk-style seasonings; you can make it as hot as you wish. I use pre-sliced (about 1/8"-1/4" thick) turkey breast meat for this; it doesn't take nearly as long to dehydrate as beef, so keep an eye on it! Prep time includes overnight marinating.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a plastic zipper bag.
  2. Add turkey slices and coat thoroughly with marinade; refrigerate overnight.
  3. If you have a dehydrator, use it.
  4. I use my oven; it only goes down to 170 degrees F.
  5. Cover oven rack with aluminum foil then preheat to 170 degrees; place marinated turkey breast strips on baking racks and place racks in the oven.
  6. Prop open oven door slightly with an oven mitt to allow humidity to escape.
  7. Check turkey after about 4 hours; mine takes between 4 and 4-1/2 hours in a 170 degree F oven.
