The FIL takes my youngest to buy my wife a present. Comes home with the $250.00 Ninja Foodi. Can’t complain. Nice addition to the family. Made some wings using the air fryer. Gonna pressure cook a butt Saturday.

Woh now....You make fun of me for $150 on a quality chef knife because I actually cook, but talk about a $250+ novelty gadget that'll end up in a garage sale in 6 months? :lol:

Actually I got an air fryer as a gift. Just a uni-task air fryer, but I gotta say that it's pretty great for fries or when it's raining out and I don't want to grill wings in the rain. Definitely better than fries in the oven.

I want to try making some jerky using some flavors and bacon.

Those things are tiny. Don't know how you can make any significant jerky in it.

It's pretty straight forward, really. But you only end up with 1/3 of what you start with. It may feel like you have a lot, but once that shit dries out...that 5 lb roast ends up a daytime snack :lol: Make sure no pieces are touching, needs 360 degree circulation. Recipes are all flexible, but if you're using soy or Worcestershire, don't use any salt. I prefer using low sodium when I do it.

And don't be overly paranoid like a lot of what the internet will tell you. You don't need to dry it out to complete shoe leather where it gets brittle.

I have a 9 tray Excalibur dehydrator. It holds 10-ish pounds and I end up with maybe 4 pounds.
An 8qt air fryer won’t make much.

And if you want some damn fine jerky, buy Hi Mountain cracked pepper & garlic seasoning. So damn good.
