Looking at buying a dehydrator for making jerky and or sausages. Couple I looked at get temps up to 170 degrees( Cabela’s). Is this good/ high enough for what I need?
Steve H - my plastic trays clean fine on the extended sani-cycle in the dishwasher. Also, lightly spraying the plastic trays with non-stick cooking spray helps a ton.I've had a few over the years. The only thing I hated with them was the plastic trays. And how big of a PITA they were to clean. If I got another. I would find something with better trays. Some have stainless steel trays. Though with SS trays. The price goes up. I just bought some jerky pans. And use my oven.
Here it is last year. Blanket across the top and tented in back. I put a lit anmps tube under it . It pulls smokey air in from bottom and exhaust out back. Since I add smoke I have to use out side so the blanket helps with heat retention in cold weather. I think it's the excalibur unit. Probably 15 years old or more. I'll get the exact numbers off it if you need them.What model you have phathead69?
