Hounds, what is your favorite store-bought brand. I'm too busy these days to think about making my own. I tried a great nitrates-free brand about a month ago and forget the name.
Thanks all

    I like Jack Link's products when I am grabbing jerky from the grocery store. The only flavor of their jerky that I don't care for is Peppered - something is just not quite right.

    Jack Link's Tender Cuts are actually very good as well.

      I second the Jack Link's, especially Teriyaki.

      If you can find it in your area. The Jim Beam beef jerky is absolutely fantastic.

        If you are in an area that has Mexican markets, go to the meat counter and ask for carne secca. Most make their own in house ... no preservatives and at a better price than the packaged stuff.

        Thanks everyone! I know I can get Jack Links and think I can get Jim Beam if I travel up to NH. RWOrange, I do have Hispanic markets but in my area I *think* they're mostly Dominican and P.R. I will give it a shot and also consult the yellow pages. Thank you!

          I love the beef jerky from Red Rock Beef Jerky in Gallup, NM. It's probably not available in stores outside of NM, but can be ordered here: http://www.chilipepperemporium.com/sn...

          The lemon pepper is really good. My husband and I both thought the teriyaki was too sweet and chewy -- much like mass-market jerky.
