Thank you, I have had a look at this one, but I do not like it's  
design. To my understanding we need to separate the heat-source and  
the actual drying box in order to gain better control over the airflow  
and thus over the temperature. Also the food we wanna dry sits right  
in the sun (under the glass but still), which is not good for  
preserving the vital content. So I am looking for a building plan for  
a dryer, that has a box with a lid where we have the racks in, so the  
food stays in the dark and the air flows trough the racks, and a  
separate heat collector - and it would be great if there would be  
thermometer at the hot air inlet, and a way to regulate the flow right  
there, maybe mix it with cooler air just like water in a faucet.

Construction plans, anyone?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
