Weeds are getting out of hand

Beef jerky

Not gardening, not woodworking. But I did it and want to record it, so here it is. I put the fan flat, up on blocks so air still flows, then stack the filters full of meat on top. I ran air through it for about 24hrs.

Thanks Kimberly for turning me on to this, and Alton Brown
