What was your process with Jerky from Excalibur? It should be held in water and seasoning overnight unless you have a vac tumbler, the vac tumbler gets the seasoning cure and water to penetrate right away so can go right to smoker.
Testing A New Dehydrator With Pepper Garlic Jerky Seasoning
Testing out our NEW Weston 9in Meat Slicer and Weston 10 Tray Digital Dehydrator
Now, we’ve got the dehydrator set to 155F and we’re just waiting for things to finish.
I haven’t tried our Pepper and Garlic Jerky Seasoning yet, but by the smell, I’m already dying to taste it and it is sure to be fantastic!
For a small kitchen slicer, the Weston 9in Slicer works really well! It’s a nice a small unit but easy to use, slices really well, and cleanup was easy. It’s a great small unit to keep around in the kitchen. We also sliced some bread and cheese on it and I was quite impressed at how well it sliced. Keep an eye out for the full video review from WaltonsTV coming soon!

The jerky finished and it turned out awesome! I’m so glad I tried the Pepper and Garlic seasoning!
I left the dehydrator set at 155 for what ended up being just shy of 12 hours, to reach the level of consistency and dryness I like.
I also did need to rotate the trays a couple times, just to keep it cooking as evenly as possible.
For anyone else out there making jerky at home in an oven and/or a dehydrator, I’d really recommend using some Hickory Smoke Powder. I normally don’t use it since I normally smoke jerky in one of our smokehouses, but since I didn’t add any natural smoke, I added the hickory smoke powder to try and imitate the smoke flavor and it worked out beautifully. Definitely tastes like I had actually smoked it!
Austin do you sell replacement trays for this Dehydrator?
SamOller Currently, I don’t have any extra trays, but I think that I probably could get them. Are you just asking out of curiosity, or do you need extra trays?
I’ll have to contact our vendor and see what we can do…
Austin I have a Dehydrator that needs trays, and these look like the same ones.
