I really love to eat beef jerky and buying from the grocery cost me a lot. So i found a way to satisfy my cravings. A beef jerky dehydrator will solve my problem. :0

I usually make deer jerky on mine, but beef works just as well. I put the meat strips in a gallon zip lock, add marinades, soy sauce, dale sauce, spices, etc., put in the fridge overnight to marinade, take it out the next day, and put it on the dehydrator. Works great almost all the time.

I've found that most jerky made using a dehydrator ends up being very moist, kind of like the Jack Link's Kippered Beef strips.

Default best dehydrator?

hey guys I'm looking for a little help before I purchase a dehydrator. I've ever dried food before or done jerky or anything but I want to get into it. I've been looking around for dehydrators and I'm leaning towards the nesco american harvest FD-37 that I found on this site http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-make-jerky-and-dried-foods-with-a-dehydrator and i'm curious what you guys think of nesco dehydrators or if you have suggestions of other brands I should consider? Any help would be great before I make a purchase, thanks guys.

I have only made beef jerky once but I make deer jerky every now and then with a dehydrator that is about 20 years old. It just has a simple coil in the bottom and multiple stackable trays.

The biggest thing is to marinate it for about a day in the fridge and then dehydration process takes about a day or so. The long you keep it plugged in, the more dry it will get.

I have an Excalibur dehydrator. It works great. I forget what I paid for it.

I've made a ton of jerky with my dehydrator. The trick is to use ground meat.

Really easy, and dries overnight.

1st you cut up the meat. I love cutting meat so do it with a knife.


Then you put it in a marinade of your choice for at least 20-24 hrs.


Then you put it the dehydrator. I use 5-6 trays.


This is what you get 5-8 hrs later depending on how dry you want it. I have a buddy who does 12 hrs and it is really good too.
