just wanted to blog about my first ever attempt...it was a very spur of the moment thing...i have been wondering how to preserve meats and thought you needed brines and smoker/dehydrater...but after stumbling around i found that people do it in their ovens...so i said wth...ill try it...now mind you it was a spontaneous venture into the unknown for me...i didnt have top/bottom round or brisk...what i had was black angus steaks from redners....so this is what i made it from....i also had no soy sauce as my wife used the last of it for pepper steak last week....i used worchestershire sauce,onion powder,garlic powder,pepper,salt,and maple syrup...it dryed in 3 hours @ 145-150 degrees....i used kabob skewers and hung it from the top rack in my oven...my wife and son love it but i was less satisfied...i can taste the angus and the worchestershire.(which i didnt like too much)..and it needed more pepper...funny how my wife doubted the skills but is eating the whole batch...but all in all, it was a decent batch and a skill i wanted to learn...i am confident the next batch will be 30% better...as i know what it needs now to my flavor pallet...i love pawnee bill's beef jerky and plan to get the next batch as close to that as possible...sorry i didnt take pics as i was not sure how it wouldve turned out...but anyways thanx for taking the time to read my post and every comment will get a thank you as with all my threads :)
I would like to see the procedure thru photos if you are willing to take them next time. I want to try this out. I'm not sure if I'm envisioning the skewer procedure properly.

i sure will take pics next time and it wont be too long as i plan on doing it again fairly soon...my wife took the last of it to work with her...lol figures...as far as the skewers...i just skew thru the top of the strands of beef...and drape the skew'd meat down thru the rack in my oven....so the meat hangs vertically...you can use tooth picks too but thats allot of extra work...and it is way easier than you think it is as i thought it was a tough project but turned out to be very easy with great benefits...i will take pics or video next time so no worries there....you can also see vids on youtube to see how others do it. good luck and thanx to everyone that posted.
Ok, I think I understand now. I'll have to try this. When I do I'll try to photograph the evidence. :thumb:
