Slice turkey thinkly across the grain, set aside.
Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl and add turkey. Refrigerate overnight to marinate.
Gently the turkey slices dry with paper towels (don't rub off the marinade). Place them in the food dehydrator in a single layer, and let dry until the jerky takes on a leathery texture but remains chewy.
If you don't have a dehydrator, you may dry the turkey in the oven on the lowest setting. Just leave the door slightly ajar to let the air circulate.
For spicier jerky, add 1 tbsp crushed red pepper, 2 tbsp pepper sauce, and 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning.
