Lou's Beef Jerky
I love the beef jerky made at Lou's Fish House in Two Harbors. Unlike most jerky available at meat markets and butchers, Lou's jerky is a length of beef approximately 3/4" square. It's been smoked and is deliciously tender. Lou's will ship its smoked fish (also excellent) but not the jerky. Anytime one of my friends heads up to the north shore I send some money with to pick some up, but that so rarely happens. Does anyone know where I could get a similar jerky near the twin cities?
You might have a peek at the "best beef jerky" thread from this past summer. I'm not familiar with Lou's beef jerky, so I don't know how it compares, but I like McDonald's meats' (which I mention in the thread I'm linking), personally. Unfortunately, it's not really "in" the Twin Cities--it's a little bit of a drive. http://www.chowhound.com/topics/417972
