I have a Ronco dehydrator, and have recently made both liver and lung treats in it that I was very pleased with.
For both meats, I cut them in smaller pieces (probably about the size of a fun-size candy bar and half the thickness), nothing too thick, and layered them on the trays so that they weren't touching one another. I didn't do anything to the meat aside from rinsing it a few times after it was cut to get out a lot of the blood. No cures, marinades or anything.
I let my liver and lung dehydrate for about a full day, if not a little more. I want all the moisture out, since I don't feed treats often so they tend to stay around for a while, and i don't want to run the risk of molding. I would rotate my trays usually about once an hour, except overnight or when I was at work.
The liver came out nice and dense, dry and crisp. The lung came out dry, very light and airy with an easy, clean break.
