Billies Biltong Maker...

Below we refer to the only biltong maker we could find on the net. Included is the verbatim sales pitch found on the seller's webpage:

Most household biltong makers are made of cardboard box. They get wet when biltong are hanged, and create unhygenic conditions for drying. They also have an electric globe inside the box, which is unsafe to use.
