I was set on buying an electric meat slicer for making jerky with all the deer I hope to slay this year. Scratch that, I'd like to make jerky if we get any more deer.

Anyway, after looking around it seems that any of the economical slicers are junk and you don't get anything good until you get into the $350-$400 range. If you have a good cheap model I'd like to know about it.

On a side note I saw this model at Cabela's and it has piqued my interest. I would still have to slice the meat into 1" sections first but then it would make fast work of it once that is done. The smaller pieces would probably marinate pretty quick too. Does anyone have experience with one of these?
