I've been loving some bison jerky I picked up a while back but it has too much added toxic stuff. Can anyone recommend a place to get bettr jerky reasonably? Even beef would be ok. I tried making my own from a bison roast I had but it was just too weird and tough. LOL also too much trouble and I still have to buy the roasts. Any help is appreciated! I need my snacks!

All Natural Buffalo Jerky from SmokinSnacks It's Crazy Good and not filled with a bunch of preservatives or nitrates.

I have to agree. Just bought a Nesco dehydrator 5 days ago-my favorite new toy. Simple to use, lots of variety with perfect ingredient control. Healthy for my family and pets-they love everything I've made.Saving a ton on store-bought treats! I figure it to be ~$4 per week (spoiled animals), so I will have completely paid for my dehydrator using it for only pet food/treats in 4 months. Still working on cracking the code for the perfectly seasoned-for-people (for pets only use dog/cat friendly rosemary, sage, thyme, and a wee bit of salt), but having easy meat treats on hand is wonderful.

i have to say nay on the paleo kits. i was so excited to get them and boy was i disappointed. the beef is REALLY TOUGH! the nuts were moist and soggy... absolutely no crunch at ALL. i dont know how it gets so many good reviews. good ingredients or not, what's the point if it doesnt taste good?

US wellness meats. Here is their Jerky Page, I also buy the pemmican. They aren't the best tasting I have ever had, but then again -they are pretty pure, grassfed beef etc.

I'm a pretty big fan of http://www.primalpacs.com/ I haven't done any head-to-head comparisons though. This thread may inspire it in me. :)

Steve's Original sells what are called "Paleo Kits". Basically different types of jerkey - some of them packaged with dried fruit - all paleo :) And might I add delicious.

Here's the site:

http://stevesoriginal.com/

I highly recommend The Coconut Paleokit - jerkey packaged with coconut & dried strawberries. Yum.

@James3,

If you a looking for the nutrients from beef, you should try biltong. Instead of being cooked to 160 it is cold cured and uses a ceviche cooking method similar to how they cook fish. The meat is soaked in salt and vinegar brine and the acidity of the vinegar is what "cooks the meet" It's a totally different experience. I buy it from jerkyspot.com. As of this post they give $5 off your 1st order. Not sure how long it will last. P.S. 1st time post...woot woot!

I always make my own using Alton Brown's recipe, it turns out really good.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/beef-jerky-recipe.html

You can use a gluten free soy, not sure about the worcestershire though. I use london broil, and just stock up when ever it goes on sale. The best part about this is that it is dried at room temperature and not cooked. The worst part is that it's kind of a pain to make. But at least this way you know everything that goes into it.

You gotta try www.ShurkyJurky.com. They have a delicious Whole30 option. It's quite badass and tasty.

I just have to say I ordered several large packets of your meat jerky and am through 3 bags in two weeks…I can’t get enough of this stuff. Incredible. So addicting. I remember it tasting well when I first tried it, but it is way better than I even remember. Their products are really well done.

I need to sign up for a subscription program...once it's available...

I've tried two types of beef (not bison) Paleo jerky, and wrote about them here: http://www.unfinishedman.com/paleo-beef-jerky-reviews-primal-pacs-vs-hunted-and-gathered/

The long and short of it are that both Hunted & Gathered and Primal Pacs are excellent jerky, though I happen to favor one over the other. I too would like some bison jerky, so I'm on the hunt for that as well.

Making jerky at home using a dehydrator is AWESOME. If you purchase one with stackable trays (and buy extra trays), you can make loads all at once. It takes a few days to fully dry out, but its pretty hassle free and soooo worth it.

Thank you everyone. We already have a jerky machine, typically making venison jerky, which just doesn't do it for me. I gave ground bison which dehydrates nicely but haven't found a seasoning recipe I like yet. I was careful in choosing and experimenting but the jerky upset my stomach. I am not sure why because I used spices I typically cook with! If anyone can make recommendation or has a recipe please let me know!

try to make your own, its pretty simple and there are many many recipes online. I am starting to make my own and I am loving it. It beats the price and besides that, you know exactly what is going in your jerkey

I think Jerky is something you have to do yourself. I was working with a friend who has an awesome recipe for Jerky and when we went to commercialize it, all of the weird commercial kitchen regulations and cooking stuff for meat basically ruined the texture and taste so we didn't pursue it. So, even though it's a pain, about every two weeks or so, I just make my own.

I wouldn't be me if I didn't say ... make your own!

While it's easiest to do it with a dehydrator, an oven at very low temp will do. Also, you can form ground meat jerky, too -- saving money and time trying to cut that hunk of steak down perfectly.

A (good) dehydrator will be the best investment you ever make.

Cowboy Dan's Jerkey Emporium has a good selection of grass-fed bison jerkey, plus some wild Alaskan Salmon jerkey and a good selection of sugar free jerkeys. http://www.cowboydansjerky.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=grass+fed.

It really depends on what you're looking for from your jerky. I don't know that there's a commercial "best" really in the US, just a least worst. Because of the FDA rules on beef jerky, all commercial jerky has to essentially be cooked at 160 or so degrees. ie. if you were eating a steak, that would be at the "Well Done" stage. Kills off any bad bacteria, but essentially cooks the beef to death too. So you're not getting any other benefits other than protein. You're "best" would be making it yourself, but as you saw, it's a pretty big freaking hassle. To be honest, I haven't found a good solution yet myself, so I've been limiting my beef jerky intake since I can scarf down a pound+ a pop, and you know how expensive that gets.

My coworker gets his from here, and I've tried it. It's really tasty: http://stevesoriginal.com/ Also, you can get goldenvalleynatural.com easily too. Health food stores carry it, and they have organic beef. It still has some added sugar I think. It's tasty, however.
