What stores has the best Jerky ?

Recommended Posts

What meat stores have you tried that has the best Jerky? I will have to say that I have sampled Jerky just about all over the state everytime I see a meat store, and the best I have had is Osseo meats. Followed close behind would be Petty Bro's. smile The worst McDonalds in Clear lake! Thin, hard to chew, and tasteless! frown

Mine, of course, is the BEST! Pat's Meat market in Lonsdale has some great jerky as well as lots of other goodies. Mrfish have to concur the jerky at Von Hansens is pretty good stuff as well. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

I just made some geese and a deer round into jerkey last week. That to me is the best. Favorite meat market has to be schmidt's in nicollet though.

If you ever get close to Grand Forks stop in at L&M Meats on South Washington. Best of the Best. The owner is a avid outdoorsmen who spends more nights in his fish house than in his own bed at home during the winter.

McDonald's Meats in Clear Lake

Cant beat it

Bigs, hate to differ, but I have tried McDonalds in Clear Lake about 3 times over the years for Jerky. Thin tasteless shoe leather is the only word that comes to mind!! sick They have good meat and brats, and I do see they have won some ribbons at the fair, but their Jerky ick! frown

Another vote for Osseo meat market on 81 just off of 169. Great jerky and lots of other stuff. Plus they sell Heggie's frozen pizza.

Schroeders in New Germany is great. So is Ittel's in Howard Lake. When my oldest son was in Afganistan, the jerky sold at the base was bad. He thinks he knows what they did with camels that wandered into the minefields. We tried to put Ittel's jerky in every care package we sent. His friends there would watch for his packages to arrive and find an excuse to visit him.

Have you noticed that all the great butcher shops have German names??

I second the vote for Ittels. While you're there pick up a ring of the Winsted bologna. There is none better. The recipe is the original from many years ago. Just remember it tastes best if it is eaten fresh and cold. If you freeze it, it gets a little watery.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
