I recently acquired a dehydrator and I have a couple questions. Do I need to cook the meat in the oven for a little while before putting in the dehydrator? Or will just putting the meat in the dehydrator be sufficient? I see where some people do one and some do the other. Also, do I have to put a cure on the jerky, or can I just marinade/season and it be ok? Just want to make sure I don't make anybody sick with my first batch. Thanks for your help.

with jerky, the optimum way is to dehydrate the meat without actually cooking it.
Because of the temperatures being so low, and the length of time involved, you will want to use cure#1 to negate hazardous bacteria growing during that time.

Cure also creates color retention and the proper texture for jerky.
Otherwise you'll just have overcooked dried up meat
