    So I have been hearing a lot about this JoJo's Jerky.. I know to each their own but wanted to see what Jerky is recommended by the VMB group that has tried this Jerky.. I typically like some Spicy food but sometimes the 2nd time around-(BELCH) it doesn't taste so good.. :0)

    So Thoughts on What to try- Beef Turkey- Sweet or Spicy...???

    Thank you in advance...

    Haven't tried JoJos but I've been really enjoying Lorissa's Kitchen -- from the makers of Jack's Links. Really quality stuff that tastes amazing.

    Whittington jerky in Johnson City, Texas. Pricy but great. You can google. If nearby it is worth a stop.
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    Thanks All. Anyone try JoJo's out of Vegas? Thinking about getting some Jerky from there in my next trip out. What is recommended from JoJo's?

    I bought a few assorted flavors from JoJo's, the mildest ones. I think one was teriyaki and another was pepper, although it was milder than one would expect for something called pepper. What I didn't like about them is I thought they were a little drier and tougher than others I have had. However my coworkers really seemed to enjoy it. I also bought mine with a Groupon on a discount. Otherwise I would consider it very overpriced for the quantity receive. With the Groupon it was fine for a take-home item.

    Been to JoJo's, and I used to go to the Beef Jerky Store on 4th St, but lately, my favorite is Gus' Beef Jerky in Searchlight. Their Cowboy Beef Jerky is my favorite.
