Well??? Was it worth the investment?

Sorry to say I have not had a chance to use it yet. Been busy getting things ready for my daughter and grandson who are coming to visit from Guam. Son in law is in the Coast Guard and they have not been home in over a year. I'll report back as soon as time allows.

Sounds like the perfect excuse to make some good-old home cooked jerky...:p

Ok finally going to have some time this coming weekend to try the jerky drier. What cut of beef do you like to use? Bottom, Top, Eye for making your jerky

I just got my Smokin Tex today but I have made jerky in my oven in the past with flank steak and it turns out amazing.

Finally got the time to make some jerky today. Turned out really good. Smoked at 200 for 2 hours. Emptied the wood box, turned the temp down to 130 and started the drier. Dried for 2.5 hours. Here are a couple of pictures.

Great pics! What an awesome idea. If the pictures say a thousand words, I bet the first word is "delicious!"

and in looking back at your thread, a Jerky Drier is next on my list of must-haves.

What an awesome way to extend the usefulness of the SmokinTex!

I use it for smoking Tuna and salmon also, it works good, and built well.

I bought one several months agot with my smoker. I have used it several time to make vennison jerky and works well.

Looks yummy Sodaking27,
Does the jerky dryer have a notch in it to accommodate the temp probe wire? Have to get a dryer.My first attempt with leaving the door ajar is too inconsistent. The smoking tex has just taught me the difference between drying and crisping (blahh!).
