Beef Jerky: Why Is It So Expensive?

I really like beef jerky. Always have. I almost always have a bag with me, especially when I travel. My favorite brand (store-bought, anyway) is Jack Link's with KC Masterpiece. However, I never realized how ****ing expensive it is until yesterday. $4.89 for 3.65 ounces? That's more expensive that tenderloin. I've never noticed before.

Why is it so expensive? I assume the processing expense?

It's time consuming to make. There's a smokehouse right down the street from me that has the best jerky I've ever had, it's $25/lb.

I'm not really complaining. I was just surprised. I don't really look at what things cost at the grocery store, until now. I only know that jerky is more expensive than tenderloin because I my wife bitched at me about it, and pointed out that the steaks were less expensive.

I don't know why it's expensive, but I love those Jack Link's nuggets - the peppered kind, oh they're good.

Do they ship it out-of-state?

I think you misunderstood her. She meant "meat jerky" and you missed your chance.

i found a recipe for making jerkey out of hamburger/deerburger in an old missouri conservationist about 12 years ago. don't remember all the spices, or the oven temp, but it's pretty much just a matter of forming the burger into turd-like shapes and freezing it. then slice it as thin as you want and toss it in the oven.
wasn't too bad...

I think a lot of the cost is due to the shrinkage that takes place. Probably takes five lbs. of meat to make a lb. of jerky. You're gonna pay for the whole five pounds.

Considering how much I like it, I've never looked on the Internet for beef jerky stores. Some are rather frightening.

Look at this one: http://www.thejerkyoutlet.com

At first I thought it was a porn site, but it isn't.
