Paleo Board, There have been several posts about finding paleo jerky for sale online. Any developments on this front?
Glenn, Yes! I know Robb Wolf's paleo brands frozen dinners got dinged here for being a bit small and pricey, and I don't know how much they will charge for this, but I would pay a fair amount for tastey, low salt, grass-fed jerky!
Make your own. Get some meat, slice it fine, pat it dry, salt lightly, and stick in the oven on the lowest setting with the door propped open slightly, leave it for several hours.
Voila, jerky, and so easy even a caveman...
Great 100% grass fed jerky available through www.uswellness.com I get all our meat there and the jerky and beef sticks. Everything has been top quality and their customer service is great.
I've also purchased jerky and other goodies from USWellness. To tell you the truth, I didn't like the jerky all that much. Mine was pretty gamey and it was really, really dry. On the other hand, their beef sticks are FANTASTIC! They're like a Slim Jim only with grass-fed beef and spices and not all that processed junk. I've also bough their shredded beef (awesome), spice rub (awesome), turkey/provolone sausage (good), honey (good), and cheese (TERRIBLE!). The prices are OK though and they ship very quickly so give them a shot.
I made my own as well using this method: http://www.rawpaleoforum.com/display-your-culinary-creations/lex%27s-$10-beef-jerky-maker-and-recipes/

Clean-up is definitely easier than a dehydrator (which I own as well), plus you can control the spices/ingredients. I always get fantastic results and it's extremely cost effective.
I'd echo to steer clear of DickStevens. I ordered paleo cookies on May 25th and have YET to receive them even after jeff himself sworeeeeeeeeeee multiple times that he would personally pack my order and ship them the very next day himself.
I requested finally a shipping confirmation number as well as a tracking number to verify something had actually shipped and geee imagine that - he stopped responding to my calls and emails and then my emails started bouncing.
I have as of today requested a refund and have reported him to the better business bureau. When I get a refund (which I am assuming will be months seeing how all the reports I've found today seem to show that he delays refunds as long as he can) I will post an update to let the record show how responsive they are.
BTW - the reason I kept being given for my order being delayed?
The reason my cookies were delayed was because "there was a shortage of grass-fed beef". When I demanded in every communication an explanation about WHY a BEEF shortage would impact a COOKIES o*only* order, the question was (of course!) ignored.
The reality is any company ought to be able to fulfill an order on a dozen stupid cookies within a 3 month period. And if they had actually sent out EVERY order they said they were going to - at least ONE of them would have made it to me.
This company is a scam. Put your money into a reputable company that actually WANTS their customers to return and have a long-term POSITIVE business experience with their customers, is my advice.
So hey Jeff, yup it's me Alyssa again posting my experience with your company here as well as everywhere else. Check it out, it's like I told you in my last email - YOU decide how your company writes this final chapter with me. Do you try to screw me around, or do you show some integrity? YOU decide how you come out looking with your experience with me. Do I report back here tonight or tomorrow that I was refunded? Or months from now? It's your call bud, the ball is in your court. I'll merely report the truth, so you decide what the truth of the ending of my experience with you and your company is going to be.
I'd prefer to report today or tomorrow that my money is back in the bank. I'd like to still think you weren't a complete jerk and scam, but I'm not really holding my breath on it this time. lol. Kinda hope you prove me wrong, but we shall see what we shall see.
BTW ... he now has been given a "F" grade by the BBB:
Keep it up folks!! Document this scam!
Best bet is to make your own. Do some googling on companies before you order and read EVERY COMMENT, not just the first few that a company will post about their own product. Dick Stevens aka Jeff Eckert apparently takes your money but doesn't deliver. In fact, in his latest fiasco he told his customer Pam Munson (a CrossFit affiliate owner) that he hopes she dies in a fiery car crash: http://www.matthewmunson.com/archives/55 WTF?
Dont purchase anything from DICK STEVENS!!! I purchaed some caveman mix and never recieved it. Jeff sent me numerous emails saying my order was shipped and never showed up. I finially got my money back last week after asking numerous times.
I'd stick with Steve's club aka paleokits!
And as of today - I still have not been refunded.
He's been a complete and total jerk to me as well - he is quite a hateful and nasty little vermin. I have reported him to the BBB and apparently judging by what pops up on Google - LOTS of people have been ripped off.
Steer very very clear from this company or any company that man is behind - it's a total and complete scam as far as I am concerned.
