Default Jerky?

Hi

I'm thinking about making jerky

Any recommendations for dehydrators, recipes, websites, etc...

I'm leaning towards the Excalibur 4 Tray model 2400 for the
appliance by I'm not yet committed

TIA

I love my excalibur 9 tray. Be aware that they are not "expandable."
But mine will dry about 10# of round steak sliced for jerky. A google
will give you a gazillion recipes.
My fav is my curry, can't find recipe right now, but have posted both
to this group & rec.food.cooking.

Thanks much.

There's a Mexican grocery close to me that sells
the best marinated thin sliced carne asada that
screams out to be made into jerky. I'm figuring
if I can do 5 Lbs at a time I'll be fine.

I'm looking to try a few other recipes as well.

Mmmmmm. Chipotle.

I have a vacuum sealer that I was going to use, but I'm
thinking that none will be around long enough for that.

I'll have to try that. I want to try pastrami jerky too.

I still think it all will be "short shelf life" :^)

I like jerky. I'd eat more of it but most of what I can
get pre-made has someting in it (MSG?) that makes me feel
creepy after I eat it.

That sounds like a good idea too.
