Food dehydrators

Anyone dehydrate stuff? I'm looking at picking up a Nesco (FD-75 model) to make apple chips as well as jerky out of some of the 10 pounds of moose and caribou I have in the freezer.

Spend the $$ and get a bigger one. or buy a ton of those trays. I bought one of those and by the time you load it up, and the time it takes, it's a huge pain.

Depending on how much you plan on doing (10 lbs) is a ton for that little thing to do. you'll thank me later.

I'm not doing it all at once LOL. Just want to play around with doing a couple apples, pineapples, herbs, and some meat. Looks like you can go up to 6-8 trays before having to rotate top/bottom trays during.

Ha, yeah you'll be drying that stuff forever at 5 trays deep. It's cheap enough though to get your feet wet and see if you like it. If you do and plan on doing more stuff more often, i can almost guarantee you'll buy a bigger more professional style.

I have some cheap one you can buy at Target and it worked pretty well. Honestly, I never used it for human consumption, just a cheap way to make dog treats. Take some chicken, wrap it around a banana slice and set it on the tray.

One tip though, don't run it inside your house (I used my garage). It will smell good, but very, very strong.

also don't load it up like is in the pictures, if you load the trays full like they have in the pictures the air can't circulate at all.
