Where's the best beef jerky in Edmonton?

I have no idea about meat (see username lol) but I figured while visiting Edmonton I could get some delicious jerky (beef or bison) to ship to my boyfriend in Afghanistan. Any suggestions? If it's a motivator, right now the guys over there say that a jerky from Ontario is the best, and I know that Alberta can totally beat out anything from Ontario, right?

    The best dried meat is ONLINE. and it's not jerky. It's called BILTONG. It's a south african version that is all natural, air dried and so tasty that I all but had to remove the vendors website from my browsers bookmarks to save money.
    I got it from an old couple in B.C. who sell it online. Just google bilitong canada and you'll find them. The Peri-Peri spiced one is my fave.

      If in Edmonton, great Biltong can be had at South African deli Betsy's Boerwors.Calgary Trail and roughly 70th avenue? But i do agree with meatnveg - Biltong and Chilibites are way better than beef jerky, and i love beef jerky.
