So we bought a dehydrator. Mostly to make jerky, because this is pretty much my favorite snack, and Shawn is a huge fan too. Added bonus that we can dry the extras from the hopefully prolific garden this summer. Anyway, I got the marinade from an old Alton Brown recipe, and followed it to the letter – it as awesome. Next time I might add more soy sauce and less red pepper flakes, but overall it was delicious! Our first attempt at jerky was a total winner.
