Thanks to Gather and some other sites I'm on, I had a lot of Amazon gift cards built up. I used them to buy a Nesco dehydrator, jerky gun, and jerky seasonings. This week, I made my first batch of beef jerky. It turned out so great!! I used the leanest ground beef I could get from the local meat market, which is conveniently located 1/2 block away from me. The jerky gun is the greatest tool ever! I dehydrated the beef jerky strips for 5 hours. They are sooooo good!!

My new toy -- a Nesco dehydrator!
I can't wait to try dehydrating fruit! And I'd like to try some other flavors of beef jerky besides original. I'm thinking teriyaki next.
Anybody have good jerky recipes?
