Picture of Biltong Maker
This is how I made my own South African biltong maker.

Things Needed:

Dremel with bit(i used a soldering iron because i didn't have a dremel)
Black Box about 65 cm long, 50 cm high and wide.
Computer Fan that can handle 220-240v
Electric Cable that can handle 220-250v
Light bulb holder and bulb
Electric Tape
Plug that will fit your house
Paper Clips
Cover to cover the computer fan ( if yours didn't come with one)
Screws and nuts that will fit your fan and light

This works by drawing air through the meat dring it. The light is to help it drie and make it a bit warm to speed up the prosses.
The bitong can stay ebible for like 1 1/2 month in the fridge and it is delecious.
Biltong is the main snack in SA and knowbody in South Africa hasn't eaten it.

Step 1: Clean It

The first thing you must do is clean the box VERY WELL because you don't want your biltoing all dirty.
Then you must trace the size of your fans blades NOT THE FULL FAN. Then trace the size if the light fitting.
Now using the dremel tool cut out your marked spaces.
The picture is a bit ahead.

Step 2: Wires!!

Now take the elecric cable and cut about 1 1/2 metres of it. Strip one end and wire it to your plug the strip the other end an leave it there for now. Now take 1/4 a metre and connect it to your light fitting.


Step 3: Place it

Now place your fan on the inside and secure it with the screws do the same with the light fitting but only the actual place where you fit the bulb must fit through the hole. Make another small hole just above the fan to the left and pull the fans cable through.

YOUR FAN MUST SUCK AIR OUT OF THE BOX!!! Although you can have it blow in it takes longer to drie.

i luv it

sweet sweet banter

Mmm this is interesting because you are sucking air but it has no effective entry point so it wont circulate properly. This will mean that some meat could be in a dead zone which means it wont 'cure' properly. If you put a hole in the top furest from the fan input you will draw air right through the box and this will not speed up but improve the process ending up with a better product in the end. The fan is just pulling hot air from around the bulb it would be better blowing air in and having an exit point. I hope that is useful.
