Howdy![p]Gonna cook some beef jerky for my backpacking expedition, and also gonna try something I have never done. My friend lent me his food dehydrator (no fan, just heating elements and rotatable trays). Anyway, the plan is to smoke a smallish brisket, and cut it up into small pieces to dehydrate. Also want to smoke some peppers and vidalia onions to dehydrate. My buddy is dehydrating tomato paste to bring, and I was gonna put together a nice pot of backcountry brisket chili up in the hills.[p]A few questions..any help/tips are greatly appreciated:
1) Zip mentioned using Tender Quick to help preserve the meat a bit. How do I use this stuff??[p]2) Will the food dehydrator cook the brisket additionally, and if so should I pull the brisket off just after the plateau temps are reached??? [p]Any other tips also welcome!! Thanks a bunch.
