Beef Jerky in Calgary?

Where can I get good beef jerky in Calgary? No time to drive down to Longview... Any suggestions from hounders...

  1. how about Fernie, then? Seriously the best jerky i've ever had was from the fernie meat market, way better than the longview stuff imho. but the longview stuff is tasty as well and pretty easy to get ahold of, even in town. heck, i think i've even seen it in the grocery stores.

        I've seen the Longview stuff at Coop for sure. Also Valbella meats makes awesome beef jerky (Mr. S is a big fan) . It's available at their Railway Deli in Canmore, about $5.00 a pack.

    2. Just a tip if your traveling North, the Olds College meat department makes and sells the best best best ever beef jerky. Its also reasonably priced because its been butchered and processed by the students.

      1. ive seen longview stuff everywhere,if you cant find it your not looking.its in vac pacs by the other meat snacks(the 5th food group)

        1. There's a butcher on Edmonton Trail North - I think it's called Calgary Meats & Deli, and they've got awesome jerky. Give the chicken a try, it's definitely worth it.

          1. I like Oh Boy Oberto jerky from Costco, or Big John's Beef Jerky (ordered online, shipped from the states)

            1. I get my Singapore style jerky fix when friends bring Bee Kim Heng jerky back from Vancouver, but if I'm looking for it here, ABC Restaurant in Chinatown sells it for a bit more here.

                Great - thanks for all of the ideas!

              2. Some of the best beef jerky I have ever had.......... go to TJ's meats. It is just east of the city limits on 17 Av SE, you will see the sign. Bizarre little place. Tim has jerky in a few different flavours. A must try........

                1. On the way south out of drumheller is butcher shop called alberta meats. The jerky there is 20 bucks a bag, but is the best I have ever had.. Its on the west side of the road..

                  1. Another one here for Calgary Meats Beef Jerky. We buy the Cowtown Jerky from them,and my husband cant eat enough. Last time in, we tried their new Pork Jerky, and I was pleasently surprised.
