How do I make crushed red pepper from my cayenne peppers?

I want to take my cayenne peppers and make crushed red pepper. Is there a sure way to dry them out?

We have not done this here in our test kitchen. You would need a dehydrator or you could use your oven. I imagine you would need a well-ventilated area to do this, as when peppers are heated they do give off vapors that can irritate throats.  There are methods that come up when searched online.
