I'm buying a dehydrator today and I can't wait to start making my own jerky! I was buying these organic bison sticks at at local health food store but they ran out this week and I'm completely addicted to them so I figured since I'm in the military and go to the field a lot I'll be needing my own jerky cuz I know I'll get sick of eating tons of tuna and salmon packets for days on end in the field. Our MRE's are full of absolutely crappy-for-you ingredients so half of my ruck sack is usually food!!! I'm going to attempt to make squid jerky and turkey jerky too so hopefully those turn out well. I just finally decided it'll be worth it to make my own jerky rather than put up with all the sugar and preservatives in the regular ol' store brands.
