Alton Brown: Are You Man Enough to Make Beef Jerky?

If you buy something from an Eater link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics policy.

Alton Brown is concerned about the men of America, who he claims have forgotten how to cook without appliances. He is particularly concerned about beef jerky, and showed Jimmy Fallon how to make it Friday night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

He uses a box fan and some furnace filters, because buying a gadget to dehydrate your jerky is "un-American." [Ed note: Because real Americans always have a bunch of furnace filters lying around.] Brown is very bossy! But maybe that is a testament to his love for beef jerky. Get schooled on the process below.
