Jerky Maker

Discussion in 'Smoker Builds' started by cactuskid, Apr 20, 2012.

  1. A friend of mine gave me this metal box and I wondered what can I do with it? So I decided to make me a jerky maker out of it. Here are some pictures. It works good and holds the temp. right at 125. So next week you can bet what I'll be doing.[​IMG]

    Looks like it needs smoke in it, too shiney.[​IMG]
     
  3. Well made a stack of jerky for me and the grand kids. The jerky maker works pretty good.

    It was just a metal box?  Did you have to fabricate the shelves.   What did you use for a smoke source?     Glad you guys enjoyed your jerky,  bet that's great snacks for school.
     
  5. Yes I fabricated the shelves. I have a 1000 watt electric element I use for heat. I just use it to dry the jerky. Next time I might try a little smoke. I just figure all the spices you put in the jery is all you need.
