The mention that the "texture is much better" motivates me to give it a try rather than my normal method.

Just curious--Does that have any effect on the fan motor? It would seem that it would overwork the motor and burn it out. Or does the air move through easier than I am imagining?

What about using a "trail mix" approach to treat training? I used to do this with Paisley when she was a pup - it was a mix of cheese, hot dogs and natural balance rolls all tossed in the same bag.
These days, I tend to use either cut up chicken, turkey hot dogs, cut up steak/meat or I use Real Meat brand air dried raw food (although I don't use the trail mix approach as often anymore, but I will occasionally).

The time really depends on how you cut the meat, how wet it is when you start it, the relative humidity and the temperature.
Typically, 8-10 hours. As little as 5 and up to 16.
I dehydrate this way because the texture is much better, and I can do large batches.

Super G, you crack me up! Military people ALWAYS have the best ways to rig things! When you spend a lot of time in areas where you can't have all your luxuries, you find ways to do them.

If you are really into dehydrating your own meat, you can use a box fan and pleated furnace filters. Slice the meat, add some garlic powder, lay it on the filter until the valleys are full, stack another filter until you are out of meat or filters. Stack the filters on the inlet side of a box fan with a final filter as a lid and secure with a bungee. Turn on the fan and check it from time to time for dryness.
You can do this outside to keep the smell out of the house.
