Flank steak is the best, but cost to much . I get 2 or 3 london broil steaks . cut them a little less the 1/4 of a inch put them in a container add black pepper ,onion powder, garlic powder, salt. mix it up and into the fridge for 2 days, stir it up 2 or 3 times , then set your oven to the lowest setting 150 , get a cookie sheet and put racks on it. lay the meat on the rack ,put it in the oven 5 to 6 hours. you also may need to crack open the oven door. Took me 2 or 3 times to get everything the way i wanted it.

We use what ever is on sale flank or london, mix up our own marinade, soak overnight, and load up the dehydrator, we have 17 racks on it, takes about two days to dry it out crisp, stick in ziplock bags....

yes 3 or 4 pounds fresh meat will get you about 1 pound of jerky.

all so you need to make sure it is dry all the way thru & fully cooled be for you put it in a ziploc bag or it will get mold fast.

Best Bet

To really get a better texture and flavor it is much better done in a smoker I have had my Little Chief Smoker for about 40 years and still does the job great. Now they have a Big Chief: Big Chief Top-Load Smoker: Fishing & Marine : Walmart.com You should get a variety of wood chips for use with different meats.Beef and Venison work well with hickory,mesquite and cherrywood,for fish applewood or chips from a lemon or orange tree mixed with alderwood.Here is good marinate for meats Making the best beef jerky You can also kick it up with things you like,I once did venison with a 1/4 cup of George Dickel sippin' whiskey YUMMM! My dad built a home-made smoker from an old refrigerator and a hot plate it used to be pretty common around the Land of 10,000 Lakes when fish was plenty.
