    Has this tab for beef jerky always been at the top or did I miss some discussion regarding this?

    I used to make Jerky all the time when my oldest daughters were small, but I haven't made it in 10-years since the machine died. I was actually thinking of making jerky once again. It is much better, and a whole lot cheaper, than buying it from a store.

    Anyway, thanks for pointing out the Jerky link...cool!

    Yeah I put it up the other day for the hell of it. While we do make something like $2 for each one sold, the real reason I put it up was because its damn good Jerky. :)

    Its not often you can find Jerky this good.

    I am not going to push it but it is a good link and you like Jerky like I like Jerky.

    Mmmm Jerky. Speaking of Jerky, what's the best low-cost Jerky maker on the market these days - under $60? I came across this model at Bass Pro for $39.99 and I think I am going to pick one up in the near future.

    If your oven will go down to 170 degrees you can make jerky in your oven.

    You could also use Alton Browns box-fan method.

    I use to make Jerky all the time, but it got to be too much. Friends and family (and myself) would eat it as fast as I could make it.

    Well, the link is gone. What brand is it? I need to order some good stuff, not the crud in supermarkets.

    Tried searching for the brand, this is the closest I got.

    I love jerky but hate how it gets stuck in my teeth. For that very reason I usually avoid it.

    <SIGH!>

    I am open to all suggestions!

    Dieting. Oddly, jerky is allowed on the diet.

    Even open to recipes for making it myself. But I’m not sure how low my smoker can go. I think oven or countertop oven can go down to 190. Or recommendations for dehydrator for jerky and veggies?

    Can’t do spicy.

    I've got a run of the mill cheapo dehydrator (American Harvest, I think?). Probably bought from Walmart.

    For the meat (presume beef), a cut that's not too fatty. Venison works well for jerky.

    Slice the meat thin, marinate in a sauce of your desire - soy sauce, Worcestershire, salt, black pepper, liquid smoke, sugar, red pepper, teriyaki marinade are all fair game. Thin, watery marinade - not thick like bbq sauce or ketchup. Marinate 8 hours up to 24 hours then lay the meat on the dehydrator racks. Stack the racks, put the top on and plug it in.

    If you're unfamiliar with Biltong, it may be worth looking into. It's a preservation similar to jerky originating in South Africa. Uses vinegar and various spices. Finished product has a somewhat vinegary flavor, as expected, and is a tasty alternative to 'traditional' jerky.

    For store bought jerky - Hard Times Beef Jerky from El Reno, Oklahoma. Sometimes the original recipe packages can be a bit peppery, but has a good salty flavor (not bland). There are other varieties, including hot and teriyaki. Hardtimes Beef Jerky
