hi, not smoking my beef jerky...prefer to not cure. I have been readying the comments about making sure the meat hits 160 degrees. If I use my air fryer at 160 and the meat totally dries do I still need to check the internal temp of the meat?  

New to this whole thing thanks!

If you're not smoking the jerky, I would use the house oven. As to checking the temp of the meat, yes you should to make sure it is up to a safe temperature.

We use our air fryer for lots of stuff, but mainly small quantities. If I wanted to do a few pounds of jerky, it wouldn't work, plus no smoke flavor.
