I have recently bought a dehydrator and made some jerky. It turned out pretty good but was a little gooey. I'll do better next time. Years ago, I made jerky in the oven. That turned out pretty well. I know others here have made some good looking jerky, like Limbkiller.

I've never tried in the oven.
If it's gooey just throw it back in for a while. Or the meat had too much fat. Fat doesn't dehydrate well.

I used to make it quite a bit,, not so much these days,, the equipment to make jerky that is available anymore is great in my opinion. When I was a kid, my father used to make jerky by soaking it in his brine for a day or so, then we would hang the strips, cover with cheesecloth and air dry it for about a month. It had a texture like leather boot laces, but tasted great and would last a very long time.

I do a batch of jerky 2 or 3 times a year mostly for the kids and grand kids. I usually start a batch with around 100 lbs. of london broil or eye round roasts cause they are pretty lean cuts of meat. I can do about 40 lbs at the time. Oh look to the right. A box of mini 14 and ar magazines. Where did those come from?

That must cost you a ton of money.

To be honest I have never tried to figure out how much it cost. I keep my eye out for sales on the cuts of meat I use and buy it then and freeze it till I have enough to get started. The meat slices better when its half froze anyway. Its not that much more work to do 100 lbs. than it is to do 10 lbs. I mix up about 2 gallons of marinate, slice the meat and put it all in 2 1/2 gallon ziploc bags and put it in the refrigerator for 3 days before dehydrating. I'll share my recipe for anyone that might want to try it. This if for 5 lbs. of meat so multiply or divide as needed.

1/2 cup Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp. Dejohn Mustard
2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
2 tsp. Onion Powder
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 tsp. Ground Cayenne
2 tsp. Liquid Smoke
2 tsp. Tabasco Sauce

Some people don't like it with as much zip as others. You can just shake on the Tabasco some of it after its in the dehydrator. I eat a lot of hot stuff. It keeps you from having worms. lol.

I started out with one of those round ones with 6 or 7 racks. Later I moved up to one about the size of a microwave with 9 racks. A couple of years ago I treated myself with that one from Cabelas. Now they have a slicer I want. My motto is anything worth doing it worth over doing.
