    Beef Jerky & Biltong

    Any fans of either on here? I've enjoyed beef jerky for a long time but haven't had any in ages. Honestly I haven't tried a great deal of jerky flavours. I used to just buy whatever packs of jerky I'd found in supermarkets. Jerky's good. I've known people who don't see the appeal or think it's too chewy. It really depends on how the jerky is prepared but the chewiness makes it last longer I guess!

    Biltong is a newer discovery of mine. It originates from South Africa and like most jerky it's made from beef. I found a few packs quite cheap and figured I'd give it a go. I had them sitting around for a couple of months and kinda forgot about them. Plus, I feared that I might find biltong awful (and thus wasted money) but it's actually really similar. There's a very subtle spice to the taste (goes for a lot of jerky anyhow) but the main difference is that it's a lot less chewy.

    I always thought that it would be a bad idea to give a cat jerky if it's too chewy (might get stuck in throat, etc.) but it turns out that biltong is a pretty good pet snack (researched it of course) and breaks up quite easily. My cat likes it.

    Use this thread to discuss other meat snacks if you like. I think pork scratchings are nice. I believe they're similar to what Americans call pork rinds. I have a couple of friends and family who are disgusted by them. They're nice! (You could at least try some...)

    Peperami is a really popular meat snack in the UK. It's literally preserved salami but I haven't tried it since I was a kid, probably around the mid-'90s. Normally they just come as individual sausages and I'm not really sure why I never got into them. I vaguely remember that a friend (some tosser) gave me the red hot variety and I called it a day. After hearing it's pretty much the perfect keto snack I do want to try these. In that snack box you'll probably only get 1-2g of carbs. I bet the US has some kind of equivalent but unsurprisingly they come from Germany so a US one isn't going to be as good.

    I started eating beef jerky shortly after I stopped being a vegetarian because I had low blood pressure so the salt content was perfect and it was low in fat which was a plus. I got my husband eating it after he got it here on one of his visits before moving to the US. Now he gets it all the time. I like the Jack Links brand and the Walgreens (US drug store) brand.

    I like peppered beef jerky.

    Teriyaki is so-so.

    I hate how expensive beef jerky is!

    I would love to try foreign beef jerky.

    I'm big into beef jerky, but it's so damn expensive! I don't care much what flavor it is, I care a lot more which animal it comes from. I like to try all kinds of whacky animals in jerky form rather than a variety of flavorings. There are a lot of variety packs out there (check Amazon) that have Gator, Kangaroo, wild Boar, turkey jerky, deer, etc.

    The most interesting 2 I've had are horse jerky I imported from Russia & some manta ray jerky I had in Japan, it came with mayo dipping sauce
    Last weekend I ate a pack of shark jerky that my buddy brought back for me from his last trip to Japan. I'd had shark a few times before but it tasted way better as jerky than mixed into a dumpling.

    tl;dr: yes, I adore jerky whether that's beef or otherwise!

    Yeah, the cost of it sucks. You get such a small amount for what you pay but when you look at the cost of other things in a similar category (healthier, more nature snacks) they are pricey too. I used to order nuts and seeds from nuts.com and they charge $13 for a pound bag of pistachios!

    This morning Thursday July 9 at 5:15am, I bought some peppered beef jerky just because of this conversation.

    It was $7 dollars and some cents for 1/4 pound of meat (4oz).

    Yup. Expensive
