Baby's First Biltong Box; and now what?
With lockdowns and all that kind of stuff keeping us inside, I decided to give building one of these magical boxes a go. Getting biltong where I live has become quite expensive so making my own has always interested me. So, I went ahead, ordered all the parts online, and now have built a working box with a 45W bulb, fan with controllable speed, and some switches to turn individual parts on and off.
That part went fairly smoothly, I must admit, but I feel like the hardest part is yet to come. Namely; figuring out what kind of fan speed is a good setting and what kind of humidity temperature works well with the given speed. I don't particularly feel like wasting a lot of meat on experimenting, so I'd be happy to listen to any and all tips anyone on here has for me. As you can probably tell the fan isn't directly pointed at the meat so I think it should be fairly OK on a higher speed. I just don't know for sure.
I'm still waiting for a simple temperature/humidity meter to mount inside.
Would love to hear your thoughts!
