Picture, left- meat drying for 4 hours, right side has just been added to dry. Homemade peppered beef jerky made using Nesco Snackmaster Dehydrator (500 watts). For .7lb meat. I used ribeye and thinly sliced the meat. Marinade about ten minutes then layer onto trays. 155F for about 4-8 hours. Marinade; 4 tbsp soy sauce, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp dried chipotle chili flakes. I used a smoked dried chipotle flake to add the smoky flavor.
