Online source to buy good paleo-friendly beef jerky?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 16, 2010 at 12:25 AM

I'm a big fan of beef jerky. However, the stuff that's easy to find is loaded with junk ingredients -- sugar, MSG, soy, preservatives, etc.. Anyone know of a good online supplier where I can get more natural stuff?

I'm aware that it's possible to make it yourself (and there's a question on that already). I'm looking specifically for good online places to buy from.

It's Sodium Nitrite, so probably is from celery, not sodium Nitrate.

No joke on the gamey. I have a hard time with it. Love the price but I don't find eating it enjoyable at all. Spicy does taste better. It drowns out the gamey quite a bit. Have you tried any of these other brands? I like Sophia's a lot but it's pricey.

US Wellness has the best price, Its good but a little gamey, im going to shoot for Spicy next time. Slank Shack is the most interesting as you can fully customize.

I love Paleo Kits. I just wish I could get them in jerky-only form in addition to the great mixed kits.

Paleo Kits has a great product, and is obviously geared to paleo concerned people. http://paleokits.bigcartel.com/

Their kits are packaged according to calorie amounts and contain not just jerky, but also nuts and berries.

Mahogany Smoked Meats in Bishop, California, has great stuff - some not paleo. IMO, the best stuff is the Dried Beef (think 1/2 inch thick and very smoky beef jerky) but I think they only sell that in-store since it has to be refrigerated.

Mountain Beef Jerky is MSG and nitrate-free. It does have a bit of sugar though.

I realize you're not looking to make it yourself, but this is my favorite online explanation of how to DIY jerky. i was looking for methods that are used in warm climates since I live in one. I also like how this article debunks the use of additives. Thanks for the list of sources, @Stephen-Aegis , much appreciated!

http://www.fao.org/docrep/003/x6932e/x6932e02.htm

I like the idea of briefly frying it since I have a high fat diet, and also packing it in fat since jerky is a low fat product. I'm pretty sure organs were eaten fresh, muscles eaten as jerky, and fat was added to meals in Grok's time... which wasn't that long ago really, if you count cold climates and modern day tribes.

Amazing jerky that I have recently discovered! The Garlic Jalapeño is out of this world! The peppered is extremely tasty as well! You can purchase it here!

It's Sodium Nitrite, so probably is from celery, not sodium Nitrate.
