Cooked or Dryed: Advice for Temps and Times for Jerky

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I had made ground meat beef jerky several times with an electric dehydrator.

I always use Instacure #1 and set the temp to 160°F for several hours until done.

I like a lot flavor and consistency.

So my jerky is cooked and dehydrated.

Is there a better temperatures set and times to make jerky in an electrical dehydrator? Something like a "best practice".

Please advice.

Sounds like you have the recipe down pretty good.... I read somewhere, meat will only get to about 15 degrees below the oven temp setting.... For what reason, they didn't say... soooo, you are good to go... If you think the temps aren't killing all the pathogens, I'll put a couple of pasteurization table below so you can be sure the jerky is pasteurized and safe to eat....

When I use the tables below, I usually double or triple the "time required" for insurance.....
