I think I should look into a dehydrator... although.. I do have a box fan handy LOL. Is this very cost effective? Seems it would be compared to a small package here that costs around $5.

Buck and I found it to be much more economical to make our own jerky. Also, we thought the commercially-produced jerky was a bit too salty for our taste. Making our own allowed us to control the salt. We've had our dehydrator for so long it's probably paid for itself. Although, I did see one like ours at the Salvation Army thrift store a while back. It was only $2. Almost bought it.
