The UK does not have the right kind of weather for making biltong outdoors, although I found a place in SA where you can buy a biltong-maker - for £75.00!
How do you do it flameliliy? The only time I made it was on a farm in Namibia and I hung the biltong out to dry on wires in the garden.

I have a food dehydrator - just one of the multi-purpose round ones with trays..(for fruit and stuff) I cant make the huge chunks of beef, it needs to be sliced a bit smaller, but it works really well - sure you would be able to get one for less that 75 pounds... mine was under 100 AUD. It dries a LOT quicker than 'hung' biltong - mine is usually done over night..
the temperature I use is really low compared to what they recommend for meat - think they want to cook it lol!
My Uncle has a dehydrator with just one setting, and his makes biltong perfectly too.
this is a link to the sort of thing I have:

Definately dont need a special biltong maker - even the oven on plate-warming setting will do.. nice dry air is all you need...
Go for it Laughing out loud

You can make your own biltong drier by installing 4 40watt light bulbs in the bottom of a cupboard to keep the air dry, and if possible add an extractor fan to the top. Don't want to cook the meat, just dry it.

Here in the us, winter is the best time because the humidity is at its lowest

I make my own biltong - whenever I can afford the beef! dont do game because the game over here is wallabies or koalas and thats just WRONG :shock:
Grew up on biltong, love the stuff and have converted half my aussie friends to it! Mine tends to be quite peppery and spicy.... oh dear I havent had breakfast... my mouth is watering.... sigh.....
