I sliced up a 2.5 pound eye of round, and marinated it in soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and brown sugar.

Sounds good.

I know nothing about making jerky, but do you think it could be made from deli sliced roast beef?

I use a dehydrator. If you are going to do this in the oven put it on 150°-160°. Put on a cooling rack on cookie sheets so air can circulate. This is from Wikipedia.

Most foods are dehydrated at temperatures of 130°F, or 54°C, although meats being made into jerky should be dehydrated at a higher temperature of 155°F, or 68°C, or preheated to those temperature levels, to guard against pathogens that may be in the meat. The key to successful food dehydration is the application of a constant temperature and adequate air flow. Too high a temperature can cause hardened foods: food that is hard and dry on the outside but moist, and therefore vulnerable to spoiling, on the inside.

The lowest my oven will go is 170*, and the Beef Jerky is in the oven. It smells so good. :) :)

I make venison jerky but I have a dehydrator. The temp. is 160 degrees and it usually takes 7-8 hours.

Be the person your dog thinks you are .... I love you Maggie dog!

I put the meat in a single layer on cooling racks placed in 2 sheet pans. I took a paper towels and patted the meat dry on one side. I turned it over and dried that side. I put it in the oven at 200* for 4.5 hours. I turned it over every hour. It turned out great. :) :)
