I have recently gotten into jerky big time. I make it in my electric smoker, and I've been making about 7 lbs each weekend (pre-cook weight.) That's 1 batch Saturday and 1 batch Sunday. This never makes it past Tuesday :) I have everyone hitting me up for jerky all the time! I just upgraded my smoker by adding more rack capacity (same smoker, more racks), so I'm about to more than double my output! My question to the jerkymakers - does anyone know if this will significantly increase my drying time? So far I've consistently done batches of 3.5 lbs. That takes me 6-8 hours. I'm wondering what I can expect if I up that 7 lbs. As always, any insight is appreciated. Thanks all!
