Tips for Making Bacon Jerky
Elevating the bacon above the cookie sheet is essential to ensure the fat has room to escape and that heat can evenly circulate around the bacon.
Use regular cut bacon, not thick cut bacon as you want the meat to dehydrate.
You can cut the recipe in half and store the bacon in your refrigerator until you are ready to prepare it.
