How to make beef Jerky

If you want to make a young boy happy have some homemade Beef Jerky waiting for him.  He will love you forever.  It’s the best snack for the eat me out of house and home boys .  Keeps them full until dinner.  That’s another story.
You will need pre-sliced beef (bottom round)  for your jerky.  It’s not very expensive and  it is pre-sliced.  All you have to do is cut your strips how wide you want and trim off some fat.  Good to go.
Next you will need this Hi Mountain Seasoning pack  I’m sure there are other brands of seasoning out there to, but this one is the easiest to find.  You can order it online or find it at Bass pro shop.
This is my food dehydrator that I’ve had for about 9 or 10 years now and it works great.  Got it from Walmart way back then for about $40 bucks or so.
The meat is all seasoned up on both sides and ready to go.  Place your seasoned meat strips on top of each other and place into a Ziploc bag.  You will want to put it in the fridge for at least 24hrs.  for it to get the cure to be absorbed into the meat.  You can place your jerky strips in the dehydrator the next day.
In the dehydrator it goes for about 5 hrs. or so depending on the thickness of your meat.
He likes it!  He really likes it!  Hee, Hee….
