Here I am eating my Beef Jerky snack.


I am playing with my Ninja Foodi Grill (AG/IG300 Series) again. I used the “Crisper Basket”, which is one of the interchangeable parts of the grill, to make Beef Jerky.


What a great snack. Easy to do, but it takes a long time. – 7 hours in the “dehydrator” mode. The directions are very clear in the instruction sheets provided with the Ninja Foodi Grill.




  • About 6 ¼-inch slices of raw beef round
  • Himalayan salt



  1. Cut the individual slices of beef round; make sure all visible fat is cut off and discarded
  2. Add salt to each slice
  3. Place 6 individual slices in the “Crisper Basket”, which is placed inside the “Cooking Pot” in the Ninja Foodi Grill
  4. Set the Ninja Foodi Grill on “dehydrator” mode and set temperature to “150 degrees” for “7 hours”
  5. After dehydrating for 7 hours and the timer sounds, set the Ninja on “Roast” at “330 degrees” for “1 minute”
  6. Remove the jerky, cool and enjoy!
