Books on Beef Jerky

One of the things I quickly found when I talked about this site with friends was that many wanted to have a try at making Beef Jerky. I found a few online resources, and later I’ll try and put together a list of useful links, but in the meantime I thought I’d point readers towards Amazon and the multitude of books about Beef Jerky, and other sorts of Jerky of course, that they have for sale. The links below are part of an affiliate program, so clicking through from here will help us maintain the site and buy more Jerky […]

Nobby’s Beef Jerky – Teriyaki

Nobbys Beef Jerky - Teriyaki (packet)

In the interests of fairness I stopped and grabbed some of the ‘commercial’ jerky I frequently disparage. So how does this stack up against the rest? Well it gets of to a good start, opening the packet and you have a nice flavoursome smell, very little meat and definitely no gamey aroma here. This is going to appeal immediately to the mass market.

Territory Jerky – Camel Jerky

Camel Jerky Packet

I’ll warn you straight away, this first review is not a glowing one. After deciding to put this site together I stopped of at a servo on the way home which I know has a pretty decent range of Jerky. I grabbed a packet of each of the Australian Territory Jerky flavours and headed home. I started with the Camel Jerky because I knew it would be a mild flavour and not knock my taste buds for a six like I expect the hotter varieties to. Now Territory Jerky is an old favourite of mine. In fact I’ve always considered […]
