Making beef jerkey

This past weekend I purchased a dehydrator. I have been wanting to try this for some time. I consume large amounts while traveling for work and I thought this would be a way to cut back some of that spending. I started looking for recipes and didn’t have to look far until coming across Alton Browns recipe. Back in the day I use to watch his Good Eats show and he is one of the few TV hosts that really gets me excited about cooking.  I plan to start out with his recipe as a base and start my experimenting from there.

Based on a few reviews I bought the Nesco American Harvest Snackmaster. The main points from the review (espicially related to their Pro version) was that the handle on this one was much sturdier and properly centered. This keeps the lid from tilting too much allowing an easier time getting it back on. Also that it is an “All in One” kit which provides some nice extras that the pro does not.

I will report back how it all goes!
