best way IMHO is to use a regular square 2' x 2' house fan and some A/C filters....the ambient dry air is better for long term storage than heat...stack the 4 or 5 filters with the jerky between them and blow air through them, hold in place with 2 bungee cords. I got this tip from a cooking show -the guy with glasses that M.C.'s iron chef... I tried it and it works great... :thumbsup:

How long do you blow the air through the filters? Sounds like a great easy way.

That would be Alton Brown, and the show is probly Good Eats. The guy is like McGayver. One show teaches how to make a smoker out of flower pots and a hot plate. Some shows use a few too many props and gimmicks, but if you can get past that the info is good.

My wife and I have tried several of AB's recipes, and I have to say they have all turned out pretty good. I'll have to try out the A/C filters, the episode can be found here.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

Do you re-use your A/C filters or toss them out?

at least 12 hours or more depending on the relative humidity in the air...until the meat is no longer moist

i do 10 hours, and let it sit in the dehydrater for two hours... it finishes just perfect that way, never to chewy

Inda, are you talking about the paper & fiberglass AC/ furnace filters? like to try it, since I don't have my dehydrator out here with me, and with the 15% humidity in AZ it probably wouldn't take long, but i want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. thanks!
