    Hi everybody,
    My name is Johnny Castellanos and I have to say that eating Beef Jerky is my favorite pastime. I am 19 years old and am looking forward to buying my first dehydrator and churning out delicious batches of homemade jerky. After that, I hope i can go on to smoke other meats and cook (and eat!) some delicious food.

    Thanks a bunch,

    Welcome to SMF Johnny! Lots of jerky makers here. Seems most of us smoke it, but it does not have to be smoked. Be sure to read some of the posts on meat curing, in case you want to develop your own cures, and to follow directions on store bought cures. The nitrates cure contains can be harmful in incorrect amounts.

    Hello Johnny, and welcome to the SMF. Read around this site and find a lot of helpful information that will get you up to speed real soon. You can also use your dehydrator for drying out chiles, pumpkin sees, and more. Good luck on the road to Smokesville, USA.
