    I've got this thing for beef jerky. The kind where the smoke flavor comes from being smoked instead of being in liquid form.

    I'm always on the lookout for good jerky - just ordered a bunch from Tillamook and before that The Jerky Hut.

    Brands I don't like are Oberto or Jack Link. Bridgeford and the new Slim Jim aren't bad but are OK in a pinch.

    I like old fashioned smoked jerky and beef/pepperoni sticks but not the kind that ooze fat when you take them out of the vacuum pack.

    Internet companies or mail order, I'll take all your recommendations.
     
  2. hint: make your own ;)

    Once you seasoned and dried your own you'll never go back to store bought or commercial sources. Try all lean beef or elk for a good taste and texture.

    You can also find alot of jekry aficionados that do a good job also ;)

  4. Hey not to hijack but that sml 4 & 5 trays do they work pretty good? I could use something like that for peppers?


    Right now I'm averaging 2-3 weeks hanging by the window for drying some pepper up, I could double duty this excalibur ( starter kit ) and crank out some jerky also.

    Here is a link to a Jerky store here in Oklahoma City, that does mail order. They also carry a large line of hot pepper items.
