OK.. I'm in the process of doing my first batch of beef jerky. Used Alton Brown's recipe. Marinated for about 2+ days and put them on the dehydrator at about 1pm today. it's now about 10pm. Looks good, smells good, but how do I know when it's done?

Thanks

I do jerky in my dehydrator all the time ......usually takes 5-6 hours at 160 degrees....I don't like it brittle...but will bend and break....but not snap in two pieces.

Take it out about a 1/2 hour before it has reached the consistency you are looking for, as while it cools it will dehydrate at a more rapid pace. Jerky consistency is a matter of personal preference.

If you get it too dry, remember you havn't over cooked it, you've over dried it. Place in plastic bag and spritz with water, let set for a day ----it will come back.
