Thanks for the recommendation Dave.

Since I have the model #1, that will definitely help. I better recheck the length of that skewer to see it fits.

What spacing are you using between the skewers?

Dave,

Never mind...about the spacing, I guess it'll depend on the width of the cut. This is what happens when you get old. Ha!

Checked the dimension of the skewers...too long. My #1 is 13" deep.

You should easily be able to cut the skewers  to length with tin snips or side cutter pliers and file the cut to dull the edges.  I like these skewers because they come with a container.

Dave,

Cool...I was just on Amazon looking at skewers, came back to the forum and did a search on skewers. Low and behold, your post came up. Talk about saving me some time.

Thanks,
Craig

I had trouble getting jerky to come out properly. Looked at the jerky dryer, built my own out of fan similar to what others posted. Still not happy with results. Did a couple batches without dryer fan, by leaving door slightly open to allow moisture to escape. It worked better than the fan dryer. Went a step further added a $10. Weber vent to top. Jerky texture comes out just right for my tastes. KISS works for me. Happy 4th everyone.
