Beef Jerky

The one thing we didn't run out of was the beef jerky, thank god! Beef jerky is a mandatory staple in the canoe campers pantry. Two days before a trip my house fills with the smell of liquid smoke. Waking up in the middle of the night to rotate the trays of the dehydrator, I have been known to return to bed gnawing on what has become know as the only truly necessary food product to accompany a canoe camper. 
Many times the fancy meals will almost go forgotten in the trance of a soar jaw making love to a slender piece of dehydrated beef; a properly seasoned slender piece of dehydrated beef, that is.
Make no mistake, there is no better beef jerky available that is better than what you can make yourself at home.
