Smoked Turkey Jerky Recipe

By Dehydrated & Delicious by Ron Popeil and John May

Cooked turkey is sliced thin and spiced with ginger and soy sauce to make this turkey jerky. If you do not have a dehydrator, you can place on racks inside baking sheets and use your oven's lowest temperature setting. Plan ahead for marination time.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 6 hours

Total Time: 6 hours, 15 minutes


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (can use light soy sauce)
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 2 pounds cooked turkey, sliced paper thin (turkey thighs are breasts are best)


Mix soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, and liquid smoke together in a bowl. Dip turkey slices into marinade. Place dipped meat in layers in a bowl or dish. Pour remaining marinade sauce over meat. Cover tightly and let marinate in refrigerator for 6 to 12 hours. Rotate layers of meat occasionally.

Place in dehydrator until dry. While meat is drying, blot excess oil with paper towel. Yield: about 1-1/2 pounds
