I just discovered the best beef jerky I've had... possibly ever. I had no idea what it was at first, but I wanted to buy it immediately anyway - I'm such a sucker for good packaging. But branding isn't the only thing Jerky Baron does well. They certainly know what's up when it comes to jerky. This is not your run-of-the mill gas station bag 'o' jerky. Locally based in Mt. Pleasant, their beef is free range, grass fed, and grain finished black and red angus. "Love and care" are cited as ingredients, along with molasses, garlic, cardamom, cumin, cayenne pepper, and more... I dig it.

I scored this amazing find while wandering around Gastown at Crome Yellow. (If you're local, I know what you're thinking - they sell beef jerky?! They were surprised, too, but as they said, this jerky is just that good).

You can also get it at the lovely Le Marche St. George and a few other local vendors, but allegedly Crome Yellow sells it for the best price in town at $14 a package. Jerky Baron boasts many flavors. For the first go, I decided to stick with what I'm told is 'the original,' Mt. Pleasant, but I can't wait to try Maui and Tartufo.
