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

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.

    • Put an L behind his name with the exact same contributions and Carlos would be silent.
    • I understand everything you say.  I'm just sorry you think anything you post is intelligent or has an original thought.  But hey if you have the need to feel important do I have a job for you.
    • I put those in there so that you COULD understand what I was saying and you confirmed it works. Sometimes we just have to try harder to communicate at a level you are comfortable with. 
    • Del, i do believe the chiropractic approach to healing an injury is significantly better then painkillers and muscle relaxers. Which may create the need to visit MD again to get something to loosen the stools from the pain meds. He's now billed for multiple office visits and services, you know, running a business. Stop being so naive.
    • I'm thinking the same thing.  
    • He is so outside that he only managed like 18 million in contributions in 24 hours from the biggest names in the political and financial elite but yet you think he is an outsider. Jets owner, Hollywood producer, Wall Street titans helped drive Trump’s $18M day http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/09/29/jets-owner-hollywood-producer-wall-street-titans-helped-drive-trump-s-18m-day.html Looks like a real outsider to me lol.
    • I would say 1x4 is over kill for furring strips aside from where bunks and cabinets are located and 1x1 is under sized for the studs.  Personally I would run 1x2 to have enough room for insulation.  Couple bucks extra up front. It saves you from hearing your furnace as often and spending as much down the road on propane.  
    • I use 1x4's as furring strips, which will give me another 3/4".  Then having it spray foamed. My last house I used rigid foam boards for insulation in the walls and ceiling.  I've never had anything spray foamed before, so if that's not enough let me know what you think.
    • Sounds like just another party hack blaming others for the fact they are fielding a terrible candidate instead of just owning up to the fact.
    • Did you even read what I said?
