I will attempt to do a price compare. But I dare somebody to give me a reason to not pull the trigger on this.

Had this on my last trip to Florida. Had to buy so many more bags.

If you like Sweet Baby Ray's, and you like beef jerky, there is absolutely no reason not to get this deal.

I recently purchased this in a store and thought the beef jerky was very low quality. I was very disappointed because I love Sweet Baby Ray's. It could have been just the one bag but based on that experience I would not recommend it.

This shows up at Big Lots a few times a year for $2.50 (same size). You know, if you're not in a hurry or anything.

Bridgeford is a good brand of packaged jerky, but this price isn't anything special. gonna cost you with shipping 22$ for a pound. I'm a big fan of uncle mikes it comes in 3lb bags and puts these thin cuts to shame.

Price point isn't too bad. Minor savings when compared to the price on Amazon, so I guess this will be my first woot!

I am a big fan of Big John's Jerky, out of York, PA.
They have specials that should be looked at...

Ah, the hell with it.

Love this stuff! Walmart sells it for $3.54 a bag though if you don't want 6 bags at a time.

this jerky is really a quasi-deal. I see it at BJ's for the same price and in smaller quantities.. I think 2.

This however IS a deal if you've already blown your shipping on something else you wanted and use this jerky as the proverbial "cherry on top".

There's nothing special about this jerky and it tastes like any ol' OTC jerky. Nothing bad, nothing good.

This is the exact reason I came into this topic. $22 a pound here. You can get John's for as little as $15 a pound I guaren-damn-tee you'll love it. I just ordered 10 lbs for christmas gifts this year.

From the ingredients... "pineapple juice power"

How much power? Can we use it for off grid sustainability? Is this why Larry Ellison bought that island?

Hi everyone. My company makes this product so if you have any questions I'll try to answer them as best as I can.

Thanks!

I bought a bag of this previously at Walmart. I was pretty underwhelmed. There were a few really good, almost juicy pieces, but the rest were much drier. There was also a good amount more tougher materials (cartilage or tendon perhaps?) than other brands. Maybe I got a bad bag, but I think I'll just stick with their amazing sauce.

How much power? It's over 9000!!!!

As somebody mentioned upthread, this stuff is no better or no worse than your average store bought jerky (take that however you like.) If you're looking for stockpile cheap road food and don't feel like paying $6-7 for this stuff at the local convenience store, this woot is for you. If you're buying this woot looking for top-shelf jerky, well....ummm.....I'm sure it's better than some other stuff but I wouldn't couldn't consider it the best.

In for 3 (or 18). I like to keep my cubicle stocked with snacks, and beef jerkey is the perfect breakfast. It's portioned, low fat, and delicious! Never tried this brand, but I've only had 1 or 2 brands I didn't like in my lifetime. And I've had quite a few. I know nothing beats straight from an actual smokehouse, but I'm lazy, bring it to my door, please

Jerky was made for one reason... so big burly men (or women) sitting naked around a roaring fire re hydrating the jerky with strong drink, can share tales of their conquests on Woot!

You are the only person so far to really describe the texture of the jerky. Everyone seems to be assuming we wall want the same thing in a jerky.

Personally I like my jerky to be as tough and chewy as possible. The longer it takes me to chew a piece the better I like it.

I have tried big john's before and it was tasty but awfully tender compared to the beef jerky from a bin at a gas station.

I am a little put off by your description that there were a few 'almost juicy pieces' though. Can anyone else attest to how tough this stuff is compared to other tough jerkies?

OTC jerky? Is there a prescription jerky market that I am unaware of? I need to talk to my doctor, as I have some unspent Flex Spend dollars I'd love to sink into jerky.

Wooty woot!

OK. I can buy this at my local Walmart for $3.89 per bag. Woot's price equals $3.83 bag after shipping. (ok- $3.27 per bag if I bought three...) Still, not worth waiting the three weeks it'll take to get here.

No, but there IS a gourmet market! I've had some from Cabela's and other woodsy-related catalog companies that was incredible! Not worth the premium price on a regular basis though...

There is at least one reason NOT to buy this and it has to do with the ingredients.

For those who have a reaction to monosodium glutamate (MSG) like I do, you don't want to eat this.

For the rest, you shouldn't accept the fact that a neurotoxin is added as an ingredient to your food.

Here is an article about neurotoxins in food: http://www.naturalnews.com/026244_food_MSG_neurotoxins.html

There is no reason MSG needs to be an ingredient in beef jerky and there are brands that do not use it.

Enjoy!

You would so totally love the stuff from a little market in Standish, Michigan. They have the thicker, juicy stuff, but they also have 'prairie' and 'cowboy' varieties that are thin, dry as hell sheets of meat. They are gristle free too. And let me tell you, you can chew for a week on one bite (may be exaggerating slightly, but not much) and still chew flavor out of it. We always stop and pick up one pound (more if we are visiting and might have to share) on our way north, and it lasts us the whole trip, and up to a week after. It is our favorite to chew on while travelling.

I have so much *good* jerky available at (semi) local butcher shops, I do not buy the prepackaged junk any more.

There is a reason, it's delicious. Also, your article is completely sensationalized and doesn't cite any of it's "studies". The only thing it actually links to is: itself, an answers.com search, a page that doesn't load, and a MSNBC article that explains what natural flavors are. Most people who say they are sensitive to MSG actually aren't. It's the old version of the current gluten free craze. Except celiac disease is a real disease, but it's rare and most people who demand gluten free food don't have it.

Read Wikipedia, at least it will cite it's sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosodium_glutamate

That link looks less than reputable based on the list of 'Neurotoxic Chemical Food Additives' which includes such highlights as 'broth of any kind', gelatin, malted anything, milk solids, natural flavor, and yeast extract.

Well said. I met a woman recently who claimed to be allergic to meat, but I only have personal skepticism for that. The MSG issue has actually been studied, and as far as I have seen there is no hard evidence of any reactions to this "neurotoxin." If I am wrong, I would appreciate evidence.

Also completely agree. I typically hate soft and/or prepackaged jerky. In my opinion, the whole point of jerky is that it's tough and dry and chewy, otherwise it's just crappy, salty meat. This looks like the usual convenience store variety, but again, please contradict me if I'm wrong.

Walmart is almost $4/bag ($3.92 I think).

This is $2.99.

When you add the freight it's higher but chances are you'll spend $5 in gas to and from a Walmart with gas prices where they are!
