this will be my 1st time at making jerky, so my question is how do I know when it is fully done in the dehydrator?

I err on the side of caution and get mine really dry, then bag and keep in freezer. I believe a certain amount of moisture is ok but I get nervous when its flexible.

Sorry I cant be of any better assistance. Use very thin very even slices so that all dry even and within a similar time frame (I am sure you knew this though)

Check some of these sites, it depends on the type of meat and the dehydrator models, heat or heat and blower. I make mine in the oven with the door cracked open at 165° rotating the trays for 6-7 hours or in the smoker in the back yard. ... u+leave+je

I would prefer to dry them enough so that they do not break but when you bend them, it shows a mark where they were bent. Always better to be safe than sorry.

This is the best thing to use for making jerky. You use ground venison. VERY fast & simple! :D

A jerky gun is cool and I have one because my ground meat wouldn't get used otherwise, however nothing beats sliced jerky.

I also have the LEM jerky cannon for making ground meat jerky. It aqlso gets used for snacking sticks and pepperettes. I love anything jerky......... :mrgreen:
