About a month ago I bought two Excalibur dehydrators for the purpose of making and selling beef jerky.
I have a question regarding marinating times.
So far I've been going for a 20 hour approach, drying for 2 hours, re-marinating, drying for another 2 hours.
Literally everyone who has tasted it has liked it, and there is a huge demand for my jerky in the two places I've been distributing for the last month.
I'm wondering if I can cut the original 20 hour marination time down.
What would the shortest amount be if I am still re-marinating during the drying process anyway?
I use a low fat rib eye cut, and the marinade contains Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, honey, maple syrup and some spices.
I do not currently smoke any of the meat; but I do use liquid smoke.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated :)
