My mom sent me a USPS flatrate large box of this stuff and when I inquired about the price I was shocked.  It is even more expensive than Jack Link´s stuff now which can be easily ordered online.  Costco´s Jerky isn´t that bad either.

I used to prefer Vietnamese beef jerky but lately American jerky has gotten quite good. There are a few Local jerky shops around here that make a number of different flavors and the meat is nice and moist. I think their deep smoky flavor goes even better with my green papaya salad.

Amazon is like the world´s largest beef jerky market.   I now order exclusively from Amazon.  I am really not sure if the Asian beef jerky sold at Asian shopping centers are actually Vietnamese but they do have the "made in USA" label in the back with no USDA certification. At least Jack Link´s and Costco´s Jerky have USDA certification.  So I think the Vietnamese or Asian jerky is way overpriced for what you get.

For the vnmese jerky, I find the  curry type which is cut thicker but kinda dry. red jerky is too thin.

Where do you live? Around here i can go into semi rural areas they make their own jerky.

I live in NYC so there is quite a variety of jerkey to choose from.  Even the hispanics all have their own national of origin beef jerkey.  However, nothing beats the internet.  We Vietnamese inherited a lot of shopping habits from our parents who shopped exclusively at these Chinese and Korean owned grocery markets with substandard products and interior hygiene.  I don´t mind paying more for organic products and healthier choices inside a place that doesn´t have that eau de cockroach perfume floating in the air.
