In response to it didn't happen.
I litetally threw the recipe together as I made it. my 1st attempt at beef jerky and as far as taste it went pretty well. A little over done but* over done is always better than under done in this aspect. I will modify the recipe to bring forward some of the subtle flavors. There also was, unfortunately no hot pepper powder in this batch as I was making it for everyone else as well.
In case anyone is wondering, the new Weston dehydrator CRANKS! sounds like an F14 on a carrier deck. 4 lbs of Angus bottom round in 8 hrs could have been completed in 6 hrs maybe 5.5 hrs.
