Took your recommendation for the beef jerky at New Foo Key and am planning on taking it on a week long back packing trip, ( a good break from the standard trail mix), given its extreme freshness and lack of preservatives, do you think it will be ok for a week in the backcountry?

  1. Hi Christina -- which part of the country are you
    hiking in ? It would depend on the temperature there.
    If it's hot weather like what we have now in NY, I
    wouldn't keep it for for than 2 or 3 days (just to be
    safe).

    But then again, those things are so addictive that
    they won't last a week in your backpack.

      Christina's backpacking up around Banff (sp?)British
      Columbia, right now. She's with my brother so I'm sure
      you're right Gary, the jerky is LONG gone by now!

        Gary and Janet, you were right. Christina and I ate
        the whole thing (one pound) before the plane took
        off!!! The regular pork jerky was awesome. Good find,
        Gary!
