New Paleo Jerky Source

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 15, 2010 at 6:01 PM

Paleo Board, There have been several posts about finding paleo jerky for sale online. Any developments on this front?

Glenn, Yes! I know Robb Wolf's paleo brands frozen dinners got dinged here for being a bit small and pricey, and I don't know how much they will charge for this, but I would pay a fair amount for tastey, low salt, grass-fed jerky!

Been doing this for a couple months, I usually make about 3 pounds of starting weight at a time and end up with a LARGE ziplock bag full of grass fed jerky for about 20 bucks. Just use any jerky recipe you fancy with grass fed beef and non-gluten seasonings/marinade. I'll never go back to store bought now that I've perfected my craft. SO much cheaper and tastier.

without any spice mixture or liquid added? Just shoot the ground beef out? the oven technique definitely works, I've done that, but wouldn't it be pretty gross just as boring beef?

hey Paleo_Gal. It probably would be easier to try and make your own cookies. It sounds like you were ripped off or they were incompetent. I mean they don't even list the ingredients of the Almond Raisin cookies I'm looking at on their site. What if someone has an allergy to something in the cookie. Or are the only ingredients almond flour and raisins, that doesn't sound that delicious.

They charge your cc when you order, NOT when they ship. After I heard about the "Pam Situation (above)" I started contacting them to cancel. They claim they will refund me but, who knows. The bad thing is that I really enjoyed their product, but the customer service and shadiness is too much!

Make your own. Get some meat, slice it fine, pat it dry, salt lightly, and stick in the oven on the lowest setting with the door propped open slightly, leave it for several hours.

Voila, jerky, and so easy even a caveman...

I'd echo to steer clear of DickStevens. I ordered paleo cookies on May 25th and have YET to receive them even after jeff himself sworeeeeeeeeeee multiple times that he would personally pack my order and ship them the very next day himself.

I requested finally a shipping confirmation number as well as a tracking number to verify something had actually shipped and geee imagine that - he stopped responding to my calls and emails and then my emails started bouncing.

I have as of today requested a refund and have reported him to the better business bureau. When I get a refund (which I am assuming will be months seeing how all the reports I've found today seem to show that he delays refunds as long as he can) I will post an update to let the record show how responsive they are.

BTW - the reason I kept being given for my order being delayed?

The reason my cookies were delayed was because "there was a shortage of grass-fed beef". When I demanded in every communication an explanation about WHY a BEEF shortage would impact a COOKIES o*only* order, the question was (of course!) ignored.

The reality is any company ought to be able to fulfill an order on a dozen stupid cookies within a 3 month period. And if they had actually sent out EVERY order they said they were going to - at least ONE of them would have made it to me.

This company is a scam. Put your money into a reputable company that actually WANTS their customers to return and have a long-term POSITIVE business experience with their customers, is my advice.

So hey Jeff, yup it's me Alyssa again posting my experience with your company here as well as everywhere else. Check it out, it's like I told you in my last email - YOU decide how your company writes this final chapter with me. Do you try to screw me around, or do you show some integrity? YOU decide how you come out looking with your experience with me. Do I report back here tonight or tomorrow that I was refunded? Or months from now? It's your call bud, the ball is in your court. I'll merely report the truth, so you decide what the truth of the ending of my experience with you and your company is going to be.

I'd prefer to report today or tomorrow that my money is back in the bank. I'd like to still think you weren't a complete jerk and scam, but I'm not really holding my breath on it this time. lol. Kinda hope you prove me wrong, but we shall see what we shall see.

My documentation with photos: http://lowcarbnorthwest.com/?p=149

Clean-up is definitely easier than a dehydrator (which I own as well), plus you can control the spices/ingredients. I always get fantastic results and it's extremely cost effective.

I've also purchased jerky and other goodies from USWellness. To tell you the truth, I didn't like the jerky all that much. Mine was pretty gamey and it was really, really dry. On the other hand, their beef sticks are FANTASTIC! They're like a Slim Jim only with grass-fed beef and spices and not all that processed junk. I've also bough their shredded beef (awesome), spice rub (awesome), turkey/provolone sausage (good), honey (good), and cheese (TERRIBLE!). The prices are OK though and they ship very quickly so give them a shot.

Best bet is to make your own. Do some googling on companies before you order and read EVERY COMMENT, not just the first few that a company will post about their own product. Dick Stevens aka Jeff Eckert apparently takes your money but doesn't deliver. In fact, in his latest fiasco he told his customer Pam Munson (a CrossFit affiliate owner) that he hopes she dies in a fiery car crash: http://www.matthewmunson.com/archives/55 WTF?

Just to keep this current - STILL nary a penny in terms of a refund from Dick Stevens Nuts for the product that I ordered and never received.

Didn't think that he WOULD - but I will keep reporting it until the day that he actually refunds every penny, and then - I will HONESTLY report that he gave me back the money that he STOLE from me. (cuz at this point, he's a blatant fraud, cheat, and thief in my opinion and experience as well as a generally nasty little troll).

At this point, I might consider adding interest! ;)

He's been a complete and total jerk to me as well - he is quite a hateful and nasty little vermin. I have reported him to the BBB and apparently judging by what pops up on Google - LOTS of people have been ripped off.

Steer very very clear from this company or any company that man is behind - it's a total and complete scam as far as I am concerned.

Okay ... my update ...

I finally after numerous emails to the BBB and investigators on this case received a refund from a Mike McDermott on behalf of KBR foods.

So it took from May 25, 2010 to August 1, 2011 to receive ANY kind of satisfaction from this company.

BTW I had to dispute the whole reason why my order was not fulfilled, Jeff Eckert was saying to the BBB right up to the end that the reason why I did not get my order of COOKIES was because there was a shortage of grass fed BEEF.

He and KBR foods have NEVER explained how a BEEF shortage would affect a single order of cookies to this date.

So yes, I finally got a refund - after countless phone calls, non stop insults from Jeff Eckert for having the nerve to expect to get something for my money, and numerous emails to the authorities and documenting my HONEST and TRUTHFUL experiences with Jeff and KBR Foods everywhere online there was a discussion about their products.

So even though I got a refund 15 months after ordering for the first time, I would STRONGLY urge people to NOT spend their money with ANY company Jeff Eckert is a part of.

I found his conduct unprofessional, slimy, immature, hostile, passive-aggressive, malicious, misleading, unethical, dishonest and nasty in every aspect. Getting a refund does NOT erase the past 15 months of obnoxious juvenile behavior that has so clearly been documented by his own conduct online and by trying to bury the truth by posting stupid stuff pretending to be other people, like we all can't figure out who it really is.

Steer FAR FAR FAR away from this man and anything he has dealings with is my best advice borne of my personal and direct experience with him extensively over the past 15 months.

IMO, he has earned EVERY warning and bad reference you find out there if you google him or Dick Stevens Nuts. Consider yourselves warned!

Now we will just see if anything goes wrong with the refund ... I just don't trust this guy at all ...

From the Paleo brands website:

When meat is lean, it actually lowers your cholesterol levels and because grass fed meat is so lean, it is lower in calories. The greater the fat content, the greater the number of calories. Although grass fed meat is low in bad fats (including saturated fat and trans fats), it gives you from two to six times more of a type of good fat called "omega-3 fatty acids."

Who wrote that? Goes against a lot of Paleo principles.

To simplify matters we are issuing checks for everyone that wants a refund, we are sending the refund with samples of our cookies, possibly our lame attempt to win you back someday.
