What stores has the best Jerky ?

23 posts in this topic

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

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.

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.

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
