    No worries.

    Scottrods, yes you can use a dehydrator, haven't done it personally but know of people that have, just got to be careful not to overdry it.

    My biltong rack just consists of a cube made from batons, it has slots cut in the top for dowells to go across for the tong to hang on and I just use a desk fan to speed up the drying process. My brothers rack has sides and a computer fan at one end to create a windtunnel effect, also works really well.

    For beef biltong I like to use rump, buy it whole and cut it WITH the grain into strips about 1 o 1.5cm thick. I then dip it in vinegar, this kills most bacteria and stops flies laying their eggs on it.
    The recipe I use is really simple, equal parts crushed black peppercorns, coarse sea salt and ground up dried coriander. You can add chilli to give it a bit of spice. Lay the spices in a tray nice and thick and then slap the meat either side in them and get a nice coating.

    Then you just need to hang them, either with stainless S-hooks or you can use butchers string, and leave them to dry.

    Depending on humidity should take 3 or 4 days with a fan on till they are getting ready to eat, just check one piece and keep going as needed.

    I built my own biltong box years ago from a kitset cabinet cheap from bunnings, I am happy to list a few pictures of it and my recipe if there's any interest ? My recipe is good for engineers, everything quite precise, none of this "a dash of x" and "a dollop of y" stuff
