Default Are dehydrated meat treats okay?

I treat, often, but only tiny pieces. I'm wondering if dried meat (jerky) would be okay. I found a DIY food dehydrator (Which is WAY cool) and I really want to try it. I don't know if anyone likes the cooking show "Good Eats" but I love that guy. And the dehydrator is his idea - you can see a vid here:

I just watched the vid again and that small amount he's making would last me many months! I bet you could even plug it in outdoors as it appears it would block bugs from getting into it...hmmm...

Quite a few members here dehydrate their own treats - I particularly remember a good thread by Pigeonsheep - search dehydrator and you should find a few threads about it

Many people on here, especially the raw feeders, dehydrate meat and organs for their dogs. I've made dehydrated liver treats, personally, and Toby loved them!

Oh yes; my dogs eat almost exclusively dehydrated treats with exceptions of what friends/family get for them, lol! I have a dehydrator and have made various kinds of jerky. I even arrange some in shapes so that they better fit in one of our kong-type toys; that can keep a dog busy for hours! Rob and I have honestly debated investing in a larger scale dehydrator just so we can make truly safe dog treats and chicken jerky. We'll see!

Do you need a dehydrator or is there any other way of doing it?

I'm going to try the DIY dehydrator. I was going to just do "sun-dried" but apparently it takes a really long time and it seems to me that sun-drying would almost be like cooked meat.

I dehydrate meats/organs. Fairly new to the organs. But yes you can make them without a dehydrator. Set your oven to 140F, leave the door open a little, and a fan on to circulate the heat. I have tried this with my toaster oven and desk fan. Did pretty well for chicken strips. Took about the same time a dehydrator.
