I did a blog post on a simple Jerky making. I know people are very set in their ways when it comes to Jerky making, but I also think that the commercial industry has turned Jerky making into a overly complex affair by propagandizing people into thinking that they need all kinds of uni-tasking equipment just to dry a pieces of meat out. In the end, it is a very simple procedure that can effectively be performed without purchasing uni-tasking equipment and using common household ingredients.

Yeah, all I have ever used is the oven on the lowest temp setting with the door propped open with something metal. Never used a dehydrator or any sort of special appliance.

I did about 2.5 pounds (pre-cook weight). Any more wouldn't have fit the the oven.


Should be done this afternoon.


I have to keep my oven door open pretty wide(maybe 6-9 inches) to keep the temperature around 160. Cant get it lower no matter what I try.

Making more tomorrow. Picked up the meat today. Talking with the butcher, he informed me they slice it for free. \:\) I know Jerky isn't about aesthetics, but its hard to get consistent thickness in cuts at home...consistent thickness=consistent cooking time till done.

Poser-
I stick a wood toothpick through one end of each piece of jerky-to-be and then use that toothpick to bridge two of the oven rack wires. So, the oven is full of pieces of hanging jerky. You can get them very close together this way.

However, I did break down and get a machine this year.
