Why is this a "staple" when it comes to wild game preparation? I hate the flavor it puts in the venison.

Anyone have some good recipes using it they would share?

Dales,Allegro,Soy Sauce,Worcherster all have a lot of salt that helps in preserving jerky.

Thier web Site has good recipes for starters. Just use venison instead of other cuts of meat.It has a very strong flavor. You might want to use 1/2 as much.

No idea why it's so popular. When I first started hunting everyone gave the same advice of, "Soak for two hours in Dale's." Two hours in Dale's makes anything taste like a salt lick.

I use it, but very, very sparingly and even more rarely with game meat. Almost never, actually. I've gotten to where I like an extremely light amount of the low sodium version brushed onto beef burgers while grilling. That's about it.

I don't like it either. I prefer Allegro when it comes to the bottled "marinades".

I have started making my own that tastes similar to allegro. I try to stay away from anything that has high fructose corn syrup in it.

I do not use any of these marinades when cooking my meats. I firmly believe in less is more and when I do use something I use items that go with red meats and enhances the natural flavor—thyme, rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil.....use some of these or all of them for a great tasting red meat.

Thanks! I like the sounds of those herbs. I have a rack full of them.

Add some good red wine to the above and it's all you need.

I don't use Dale's very often, but when I buy it I get the low sodium version. The flavor isn't as over-powering, and the marinade process is slower (I think it says to use it for 30-60 minutes instead of 15, or something).

I basically only use it on chicken breasts when doing a quick grill job, so it takes a long time to go through a bottle.

I don't mind the flavor itself, it's just that most people turn it into an overpowering mess that makes you forget what you are eating.

I prefer Alegro because it is less salty and even with it I cut it by at least half and half with a can of beer.

TRY MOORE'S SEASONING, NOT NEARLY AS MUCH SALT AS DALES.

Works good for jerky, but like previous post is way too salty using straight, I dilute mine 1 part Dales 2 parts water and dry season with Ms Dash spicy blend and jerky is very good.

Mix the dales with pepsi or another carbonated beverage it levels out pretty good.
