So how is the taste? I am going to be making some venison jerkey today but I just received a new dehydrator so I am going to use that instead of smoking them. I have never made jerkey before my dad has always done it in the past so I am pretty excited about the whole process. My dad has always used a dehydrator in the past I should try some on my smoker as you did and see how that goes. Contrats on the jerkey.
