    tray and dry jerk before cooking
  • Once dry, cook on roasting grates at 175 degrees for 1 hour if you have a convection oven or 2 if you do not. You are removing the moisture from the meat, this is the goal. The time you cook it should be determined by when the product reaches a dry jerky consistency. It should be chewy, not brittle or charred. The thicker your meat, the longer it will take.
