After about 10 days of procrastinating, I finally decided it was time to get out the dehydrator and make some beef jerky. We're doing double batches now (2 lbs of ground beef) as it doesn't last long. It's a great snack and isn't all that bad for you...well, except the salt part. Our house now smells like cured meat - and in about two hours we'll have something to show for it. I use my friend Keith's recipe and then tweak it just a bit to make mine a little different - yum!
