Can you use store bought marinade for jerky?
YES! Most of the time when slicing meat for jerky, I will have left over pieces that are too small or too fatty to turn into primary cuts of jerky. Uniformity of thickness and shape helps the cooking process which results in even and consistent end-product.

While salt adds flavor, it’s not necessary to cure the jerky, as it is for curing ham or fish for example. Make your own jerky for much less cost than you’d pay in the store. Choose from lean beef, pork or chicken. While you don’t need curing salt, there are a few other things you do need.

Just jab your meat with a fork a bunch of times, put it in a ziploc (or tupperware or bowl covered with saran wrap), cover it with enough of the marinade to coat it well (just eyeball it and err on the side of a bit too much, keeping some in the bottle to use as dipping sauce), and leave it for 15-20 minutes out of the
How do you know when jerky is done in a dehydrator?
Take the piece of jerky and bend it gently to about a 90-degree angle. If any moisture squeezes out, it’s definitely not done yet and can go back into the dehydrator. If it cracks and breaks, you’ve left it too long, and it’s already past the point of best flavor and texture.
