Hamburger Beef Jerky

I made a half batch of this and it filled my 6 tray dehydrator!  Don loves beef jerky and I had been looking for a 'homemade spice mix'.  He loved this! I did not let this sit overnight before using my 'jerky gun' and getting it drying.  Still had great flavor.
Hamburger Beef Jerky

5 lb ground beef
4 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
3 tsp onion powder
3 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp cumin
3 T brown sugar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 T liquid smoke

Mix meat with all the seasonings. Use hands to mix well. Marinade in fridge overnight.

Press onto parchment paper with hands, 1/4 inch thick. (Or use a jerky gun.)

Dry according to your dehydrator's instructions. Beth let it run all night and it was done in the morning.Flip the meat and rotate the racks halfway through drying time.

Store in freezer for long-term storage.
