Using less salt this batch is far better but a bit too dry for personal taste. The fan that is used to dry the beef strips keeps dying (I suspect a dodgy battery is not holding charge from the mains correctly) so I put in a bigger one and left it running over night.
It did the trick all right but it could have done with less drying time. Lesson learned before I begin the next lot. But this time I will be making a new box with a proper fan, new cooling racks and I don't think I will bother with the light either.
A case of trial and error but I will get this sussed before long.
