I got one of those stainless ones from LEM. I like it, but cannot figure out why it does not have a drip tray. I line the bottom with foil and all is well, but it should come with a drip tray.

Make sure you get one with a temp controller.

Some of the basic ones do not.

I’ve had one of the American Harvest Snackmasters for 20-odd years. Keeps on chuggin’, and you can still buy trays for it. Right now the China Doll is cranking out peaches, 7 trays at a time. Saves space in the freezer, and they’re very tasty.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a man a welfare check, a forty ounce malt liquor, a crack pipe, an Obama phone, free health insurance. and some Air Jordan's and he votes Democrat for a lifetime.

Another vote for excalibur. Used the cheap nesco and american harvest for several years, the excalibur blows them away. The cheapies are used for drying brass now.

20+YO Mr.Coffee round 5 tray.

$29 at Walmart[last time I stepped foot in one].

It's not about the dehydrator though. wink

Done ronco, nesco, etc… over the last 30 or so years.

Excalibur all the way, I’d go timer with less trays if forced to choose and shopping to a price point.

American Harvest here. I don't make jerky often enough to justify the $300+ for the fancier units. Just make sure you get one with square/rectangle trays. They are much better than round. Especially if you're using a jerky gun to lay out your strips.

Pulled up. Tooted the horn and they brought it out to me.

Listen Buster, we don't do none of that fancy curbside whatchamajigger stuff round these parts!
I was blindfolded and dragged into the Walmarts that time!
If Don's One Stop Shop don't have it on the shelf then we don't need it!

That what Laura runs for us.

Does lots of red meat jerky and some fruits and veggies (not so good there). Figs did fair. Kiwis were better.

Did some tuna and Sierra jerky last year that was outstanding... I'll do a post if we try that again. Tabasco or Honey Mustard... still playing.

Whatever you get, get one that costs $15,000 so you can come back here swinging big cock about how much money you spent.

It has to be one that runs off of 3 phase current and that you built a dedicated building just it and its purpose.

And have a couple of silver pigeon shotguns in the background when you post pics and maybe a 2/3 smoked $21 cigar and some brown water.

Get a big one, if'n you're gonna run it might as well have it full.
Get the rectangular shape as mentioned, not a round one. I have a gourmet elite round one it doesn't hold much.
I put it outside in the heat, no sense in pumping out hot air in the house in the summer time.

Mine is sitting here at work, I run it around the clock during/after deer season.
I run it at night at home, bring it to work and run a batch here.
Rinse
Repeat

We 'jerk' 3,4 whole deer every year
Has at least 1k hours on it[probably more like 2-3K] and works like a champ.
When it fails I'll chuck it.
Go down to store and get another.
