Jerky Addiction In The House

Hi! My name is Brian and I do love me some jerky! Jerky is to me what cocaine is to a crackhead - it's addictive! My absolute favorite is homemade venison jerky. When done properly, it can't be beat in my opinion. Give me a bag of jerky, a six pack of beer, and a knife and I could survive a very long time on a deserted island. Well, a couple of days at least. A couple of very happy days!

Unfortunately, homemade jerky normally isn't around in unlimited supply. It doesn't help that I go through it like a starving squirrel through a nut cache. So where do I go to get my jerky fix when I don't have any of my own? My favorite supplier is House of Jerky, bar none!

House of Jerky is owned and operated by a lovely lady named Janie. And HOJ has just about any kind of jerky you could want - beef, venison, turkey, boar, buffalo, salmon, and exotic jerky, including alligator! You can get it in natural, black pepper, teriyaki, hot, and sweet and spicy flavors.

I've had most of the jerky with the exception of salmon and exotics. It's ALL good! While venison remains my all time favorite, the turkey jerky blew me away! Awesome stuff! I'm not a big fan of teriyaki, hot, or spicy flavors in general. That's just my personal preference. It has nothing to do with the jerky itself. However, I have tried all of those flavors from HOJ and they're very good. What I like personally is the black pepper! Holy dried meat, Batman! The black pepper ANYTHING is killer! I'd fight a rabid skunk with both hands tied behind my back to get some of that stuff!

House of Jerky doesn't use any preservatives or funky additives in their products. It's all natural and USDA approved. They slice their jerky, too. It's not chopped, pressed, minced, processed, hammered, stabbed, beat down, slapped, or stomped on. Not only is the jerky excellent, but so is the customer service! On top of that, HOJ is a huge supporter of our troops! They routinely send jerky care packages to our men and women in uniform. You can help with that effort, too. Check it out on their website.

I have to be very careful about ordering jerky for the simple reason I could easily spend too much money! Unlike crackheads who steal to fund their addiction, I come by my money honestly. And HOJ jerky is honestly that good! In fact, I'm starting to twitch and get that craving just from writing this post. It reminds me of what I went through a few years back while getting cured off the Wild Turkey.**

If you're a jerky connoisseur or you just like gnawing on it while slugging a cold beer, you'd probably like what House of Jerky has to offer. Give it a try. If you don't like it, you can send it to me for proper disposal! Guaranteed.

Another great and laugh-inducing post! You must have some good strong intestines to handle all that dried but delicious meat! (TMI, I know...)

Nice! Now I just HAVE to go over there and get me some. I ran out and have not found the time to make more. I eat it too fast!

Trey said...

Thanks! I will check it out!!

Joe said...

There's other things to eat and drink besides jerky and beer????????? :)

Gosh, Brian, wish I had known you a few months back. I am the deer jerky maker in this house and I know what I'm doin' after 10 years.

Next November remind me to send you some. :)

Like Kari said, HOJ jerky is the best! You wouldn't be disappointed if you tried it.

Darn, Nancy, I wish I would have known you sooner, too! I'd love to try some! Don't forget me this fall.

It's like crack cocaine at our house too. We had to invest in an industrial dehydrator since I burned up two cheapies from Walmart in one year from over use....But your post has my curiousity up now so I may have to purchase some to try it out especially knowing its sliced ....which in my opinion is the only way jerky should be made

heyBJK said...

I agree, LB. Love the sliced jerky! Glad to see you're serious about your jerky - re: industrial strength! LOL

I love jerky along with red wine...man...if it wasn't 645 am...LOL

The stuff is also such a convenient, and travel friendly protein source it's really hard to beat.

Thanks for the heads up on another source Brian!!

I've never tried it with wine, Dennis. Actually, I've never thought of jerky and wine together. But, I'm not really a wine drinker, either. It is convenient...so convenient it's hard not to eat the whole bag!
