The Ultimate Jerky List

I just read the following article in the NY Times Online about artisinal jerky:

Now I'm suffering from an itch that can only be scratched with, you guessed it... jerky! So, please, I ask you... please let me know your favorite places to get jerky, whether it be artisan buffalo jerky in some high-end restaurant, or amazing homemade beef jerky from some small stand somewhere... please help me create the ultimate jerky list for the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area...

      1. Manhattan Meats in Manhattan Beach has awsome jerky. Made in house..

        Manhattan Meats
        1111 Manhattan Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

      2. When Gallegos used to be in Santa Monica they had the great big peppery sheets of jerky. Sadly, I haven't been to the new location due to geographical issues but if they still have it, it is good.

        1. The jerky stand inside the San Gabriel Superstore (next to Yum Cha Cafe).

          San Gabriel Superstore
          1635 S San Gabriel Blvd, San Gabriel, CA 91776

          1. Hands down
            A & Z Nut Wagon. 816 S Lorena St Los Angeles, CA 90023

            Los Angeles Magazine named it the best beef jerky for 2006. Nothing like I have ever tasted before. Awesome!!!!
