Beef jerky is definitely one of my guilty pleasures, but I usually do not really like the store-bought stuff. The type of jerky that you will find at a gas station is usually loaded with preservatives, and it does not quite have the authentic flavor as jerky that is either made at home or by a local company. I do not like wasting my money on bad jerky, and so I set out to find the best hickory smoked jerky that I could possibly find in my area. No matter where you might happen to live, there are probably quite a few local food companies that make their own jerky. Trying to find the one that you like the best often comes down to trial and error, but usually the popularity of a specific type of jerky will help you to understand whether or not you might end up liking it.
I ended up finding a local restaurant that made all kinds of jerky products. They made beef jerky, bacon jerky, turkey jerky, and much more. After trying their beef jerky for the first time, I fell in love. It was so good that I wanted to have some in my home at all times in case I wanted a snack. Thankfully, they do sell the jerky in bulk, so I was able to get big packages of all of their types of jerky without any problem whatsoever.
These guys are now my go-to when it comes to jerky, and everyone I have shared their jerky with has loved it. I hope they do not ever change their recipe, because it is some of the best stuff I have ever tasted in my life. I don’t know how they prepare it, but I love whatever it is that they do.
