Some good recipes for deer (or beef) jerky.....

I got this list from a very helpful person over 10 years ago. Got some great results with it and then lost it a few years ago. Out of the blue, I found it backed up on a old floppy (yes, floppy). Anyway, some of this stuff is worth sharing.

Your own curing and smoking process apply of course, but some of these might be a good change of pace from the same ol' brown sugar and soy sauce.
