Thread: Beef jerky (food dehydrator)

    Beef jerky (food dehydrator)

    Hi all just see what you use to make your jerky looking to buy a food dehydrator. Any suggestions

    I have used my over before with the door open but not the best.

    Thanks Kris

    Never used dehydrator before - I make a lot of beef Biltong which is really easy and just needs a dry place with a light breeze to dry it. Love jerky though.

    I have a dehydrator, it cost me about 200 I can make about 3 roe haunches worth of Jerky in 4 hours unless I marinade it overnight. It took a little trial and error to get right and sometimes it over dries it and you end up with venison crisps. When you get it right though it is delicious, I have also used it to dehydrate wild mushrooms, which I then use like porcini for risotto's etc. and for Fruit leather which is lovely.

    +! for NEDS,

    I just did two fallow haunch in the attic with both velux windows open so there was a nice breeze. It takes a bit longer, but will save you 200!

    I made one out of a bedside locker and a 40W light bulb. You can borrow it if you like - and I've got some Biltong spice mix!
