On the way to Mammoth Mountain, up the 395 is a place called Mahogany Smoked Meats. Skiiers often stop by to pick up some so that we will have something delicious to knaw on while sitting on the lift. I have friends that do the mail order. I stock up when I am in the area. I like the slab, teriyaki and the western.
My husband loves the jerky from www.amanameatshop.com
What i do is this, order some delicious bacon from them, then when you check out, you can do "ride along" which is add some things for less price, so i add the jerky, yo u can add as much as you want. I know that he thinks its the best jerky.
