Well, actually surprisingly easy. Just get some lean ground beef (I use Bison after several tries with 80/20 and turkey ground beef), add Nesco BJ-18 Jerky Spice Works, let it sit for 2-6 hours in the fridge, then put it in the jerky gun.
I usually do the thin sticks or the thick 1 " strips (actually my favorite). line them up squirt them out in layers.
Some people spray cooking spray on the shelves, but I have not had an issue where the jerky stuck to it. Put it on highest setting for about 3-4 hours, then put it on kitchen towels and pat the oil up. Then i put 5-10 in a vac seal bag, seal them and freeze them for later use. Write the date on the bag. 1 pound will get you about 20-30 sticks or about 20 thick strips. not a whole lot, but good enough to get you 2-4 good servings when you go hiking.
I also add a few drops of hot sauce and Liquid smoke to the mix to give it a little sting! but there are a ton of recipes on the internet.
Clean up is easy - just put each of the shelves in hot water, brush them off and let them dry. I also put them in the dishwasher if I only use 2-3 of them. Cleans up easy.
For fruit it is a little more difficult to get the perfect dryness. I like apple chips, but they have to be crunchy. So cut them a little thicker than you think, then dry them on high for about 6-8 hours. After that put them in the oven and put them on about 220F and bake them for 15-20 mins. Take them out and let them completely cool down. They will get crispy. then vac seal them and you have a nice healthy snack for a few days. Just don't expect the same crunchiness you get from story bought fruit chips.

This came with seasoning packets, enough to make several batches of beef jerky using lean ground beef - which I had never done it this way before. As I've always bought a big lean roast, and sliced it, then marinate it in various sauces for at least 2 hours (min), then lay it out on the trays to dehydrate. Which to be honest, even though the ground beef version was good, I still prefer the roast version.
While beef jerky is my main use for this dehydrator, I have also done banana, and apple chips in it as well. I know it can do many other foods, but I just haven't tried much other foods (yet). Also, even though it says not to place in the dishwasher, I do it anyway - but I use the normal cycle, and I skip the heat drying cycle - which works just fine, no cracked trays etc.
This is the slicer I bought, in case anyone else is interested...
