In this video, Alton Brown shows you how to make beef jerky with a box fan and some air filters, for those that don’t have a food dehydrator. I also learned a couple useful/interesting tidbits:

  • To easily cut beef into very narrow strips, first freeze it until it’s practically frozen.
  • Worcesterchire sauce is based on an ancient Roman sauce called garum.

If you enjoy Alton Brown’s inquisitive approach to preparing food, you should check out the book Cooking for Geeks. It gives you a completely new way to look at the amazing processes that occur in your saucepans, ovens, and steamers.
