Basic Beef Jerky Recipe Wanted

sekelmaan | Jan 11, 2013 08:07 AM

I am wanting to make some beef jerky at home. I was wondering if anyone had knowledge as to what the minimal ingredients one needed for jerky. Is it just beef and kosher/sea salt? Then dry that?

If it is only salt and meat, what is the minimal amount of salt to keep the sodium levels down?

Also, I was wondering about dehydrator suggestions if anyone has any. I am going to try Alton Brown's HVAC filters and box fan method this first time, but if I like what comes out I may get a dehydrator down the road.
