EDITORS NOTE: THIS METHOD DOES NOT MEET THE USDA RECOMMENDATION OF HEATING MEAT TO 160 DEGREES PRIOR TO DRYING IT.
Passing this along untested. What you’ll be doing is buying a couple of furnace filters ahead, and then using bungee cords, which are universally handy anyway, to attach them to a box fan, making a forced air dehydrator. Can’t try it ourselves becauseit would drive the dogs absolutely bonkers to be that close to the wafting fan breezes over a good raw steak.
One good advantage to making your own jerky is you can use whatever meat you want and flavor it however you want; yet another reason would be you can make it lower in sodium yourself.
