Most beef jerky sales come from convenience stores. In fact, it’s one of their most profitable items so you can expect your local Mom & Pop shops to keep their shelves fully stocked.
Beyond the convenience store, jerky can be found in a variety of other locations. Large supermarket chains often carry jerky products of varying qualities and flavors. And meat specialty stores are also prime locations to score quality beef jerky.
Much like any other unique product, beef jerky can also be sold at branded locations as an exclusive item. A quick web search of “where to buy beef jerky” should point you in the direction of gourmet beef jerky outlets near you.
There are also trade shows that specialize in homemade and gourmet jerky. At these locations, you’re sure to find some of the best beef
You Can Also Buy Homemade Beef Jerky Online
Homemade jerky is next level stuff when it comes to flavor and quality.
I’ve often explained to my friends and family that the best beef jerky is made by the little guy in his (or her!) backyard. He’s hard to find, but once you do find him, you’re never going back to store-bought jerky.
So if you aren’t willing to make jerky yourself, there are other means of getting the delicacy.
The web is the ultimate domain of shopping convenience, with jerky too only a few clicks away. And it should come as no surprise that these “internet outlets” will deliver homemade jerky right to your doorstep!
Before you buy from an unknown source though, do your research. If you haven’t purchased online before, be weary of buying the first item you find. You’ll see that jerky online varies significantly so be prepared to see big variations in price, ingredients, flavors, delivery, and even packaging.
But be sure to check customer reviews (when available).
Unfortunately most of these sites aren’t going to be very polished so reading customer reviews may prove difficult. Remember, these guys are busy making jerky, which is what you want. They’re jerky masters, not web masters!
Once I began dabbling into the homemade world of beef jerky, the options near me never quite had the same luster.
So what’s your favorite jerky place? How about a flavor or a spice that really changes up the taste?
