    Has anyone ever tried doing ground beef jerky in a dehydrator?  I have a commercial cabelas dehydrator that I can get up to like 170 degrees but I am somewhat scared of the fan drying it out too much.  I was planning on doing something like bear's pepperoni sticks out of the jerky gun onto my dehdrator racks and then into the dehydrator.  I have done them in the oven in the past but I cannot get my new gas oven down to 170*.  I believe in the past, when I used the electric oven, I did them at 170.

    Thanks ahead of time for responses.

    Yes I prefer the leaner grond meats over just burger. however I have used the 73%. I'd go 80-20 or leaner.

    Remember to post a Qview.

    Happy smoken.

    OK.. do you have a rough time for sticks like I am talking about or are you just going to an IT of 152*?  I would assume it wouldnt take more than a couple hours.

    Thanks for the response,

  4. Jim I take them to 153° thenput them in a ice water bath. It will depend on what size your makeing as to how long it will take.  but yes it will be several hours

    Happy smoken.
