I was trying to find the word for this -- basically you don't cut across or with the grain.

Lol -- you still cut it, just diagonally relative to the grain. I wonder how long a whole 20oz NY strip would take to dehydrate

Anything from the hindquarter will work nicely. Top round, bottom round, eye of round, top sirloin. They will all work well. As said earlier, trim away all the fat and silverskin. Cut them thin against the grain and you will have some nice jerky. You don't NEED a deli slicer, but it will make things easier. But your knife had better be good and sharp.

Oh, my knife is sharp!

I hit it with the steel after almost every use.

Actually, I hit it before I put it away so it's ready to go.

I've told the family how to use, wash, and sharpen that knife. Now they're all afraid to use it!

Picked up a flank steak last night. Now to find an awesome marinade. Kind of partial to classic and teriyaki.

My in-laws neighbor made jerkey once. He used the whole steak. We ate it all in one sitting.
