I made this for the boyfriend, a jerky junky, and he loved it! We couldn't believe how easy and mess-free it was to dehydrate it in the oven ... and mine was done in about 4 or 4-1/2 hours at about 180 degrees F. The only changes we'll make are to reduce the garlic powder (my request) and red pepper (his request), and he's thinking about giving it a little whirl on a "cool" grill, just to briefly smoke it with a few oak chips. Thanks for coming to my recipe request rescue (say that 10 times fast!

I used deer meat, about 2 lbs. It was great! I loved it, all the boys in the family loved it, and I will definitely make them again!. I laid the strips of meat out the oven rack (and on punctured aluminum foil where the slices were too small to not fall through). I baked at 150 for 6 to 7 hours, checking ever hour after 4.
