  1. Preheat convection oven to 175-degrees F (actual temperature, not adjusted. Or heat to 180-degrees on a regular oven. Lay aluminum foil or parchment paper (for easy clean-up) on 2 large metal baking sheets; place a wire cooling rack on top of each tray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix all the spices well with a fork; sprinkle about a third of the spices on a plate, set aside the remainder.
  3. Trim the meat and slice in slices 1/8-1/4-inch thick. Lay meat on spice covered plate; flip to season the other side. Arrange meat close together on cooling racks.
  4. Bake 2 1/2 – 4 hours; begin checking at 2 1/2 hours. Meat should be no longer pink and dry, but still pliable. Store in air-tight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. Freeze for longer storage.
