Very good flavor. I had about 4 lbs, but I doubled the soy sauce, smoke, garlic and onion powders and left out the chili powder (and used 1/4 C Worc. sauce). My Nesco said to dry at 160° and I think I left it in too long (9 hours). They were really dry and harder to chew, but my kids still love it. I used tenderized round steak and chicken breast. Some people liked the chicken better even.

Great flavor! I used a dehydrator to render a london broil sliced very thin into delectable jerky. Yum. My diabetic DH found he can snack on these as they have minimal carbohydrates. Thanks PugMomma Brenda for posting!
