This from www.greatjerky.com -- they concur about the use of a convection oven, but add the following:

IF YOU HAVE A NEWER ELECTRONIC CONTROL OVEN THAT IS NOT CONVECTION...
You may also be able to use it for jerky as well. I also have a brand new Whirlpool non-convection wall oven (RBS245P..)that allows the bake function to be set for 170°F as a minimum temp. BUT HERE'S THE TRICK: If you hold the BAKE pad for 5 seconds, the control enters the user "calibration" mode. This allows you to adjust the actual temp +/- 30°F in 10°F increments against the temp shown on the display. IF YOU SET THE CAL FOR -30... and SET THE BAKE TEMP for 170°F YOU GET 140°F!!!

MOST electronicly controlled ovens have a form of this user adjustment on the controls. READ THE MANUAL or call the manufacturer's toll-free consumer assistance number for assistance (if you have a newer product). Your oven may be an untapped resource for great jerky that you didn't realize you already had!!!
