Smokin' in a dehydrator

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Anyone ever tried this? I'm thinking of an A-Maze=N pellet tube behind the dehydrator and let the fan suck the smoke in. Would this gum up the dehydrator?

Trust me, you won't want to use that dehydrator for anything you don't want smoke flavor on ever again. One hour of smoke through the fan and you'll have smoke flavor for years to come. Give it long enough, yes, you'll have a lot of smoke residue all over inside the dehydrator.

Thanks Eric. 

I hadn't thought of the residual, that's why I come to this place :77:

No problem. If you had 2 dehydrators, one could be for smoke and the other for clean air drying...just a thought.

G93, figure out a container of some sort to hold the smoke for an hour or so(big box?) and then finish your jerky in the dehydrator after it gets some smoke.

I have a couple of the cheap round ones but the capacity is very limited. If I get a nicer one like an Excalibur maybe I could build something to hold the trays and just move them over. that would be along the lines of what CrazyMoon suggested.
I have several smokers and use them for summer sausage and such but I like the dehydrator for jerky as it need less babysitting.
As a side note, I have some made in a smoker and some in a dehydrator, can't tell that much difference.
