Dehydrator Experiment

When I have gone to the pet food stores recently, it seems there is a craze for dehydrated dog treats made of duck and sweet potato. They are quite expensive, but Drizzy and Chloe just love them. I decided to try and make my own version. I bought a couple large yams and got some free venison meat from a friend/hunter. Fuzzy sliced the potatoes into long pieces and the meat very thin. I wrapped the meat around the potato and placed in my dehydrator. Here is a before picture.
After about 7-8 hours both the meat and potato appeared done.

Here is a side by side picture of the store bought $10 a bag and my version (on the right). The dogs loved them!
