People are stealing beef jerky! understands that beef jerky is the greatest snack food around, but some people always seem to know how to take their addiction to the next level.

A recently published article by the Palm Beach Post takes notice of a 23 year old man (that will remain nameless, because that’s embarrassing) who was caught shop-lifting $25 worth of beef jerky and meat snacks from a local convenient store.

He had placed an estimated 2 pounds of jerky products down his pants before punching a man an innocent bystander in an altercation. He didn’t get away however, because his get-a-way vehicle was a red bicycle, authorities said.

This occurrence obviously caught the gas station clerk and local police authorities off-guard as well as provided them with a funny story that will last a lifetime.

This got me to thinking.

If I was absolutely desperate for some beef jerky, what kind would I steal??

No, bacon jerky is not a myth and yes, it does taste as good as it sounds.

Made from 100% pork and cut into really thick strips of meaty bacon, each strip is marinated and smoked as usual, very much like beef jerky is made.

This gourmet product is receiving rave reviews from both customers and industry insiders. Having only been introduced just a short time ago, this seems to be the perfect stocking stuffer for any guy during this holiday season.

Cranberry Thanksgiving Turkey Jerky

house of jerky teriyaki turkey jerky Cranberry Thanksgiving Turkey Jerky


  • 2 pounds of turkey (or any meat type)
  • fresh cranberries
  • brown sugar or regular sugar
  • an orange
  • water
  • salt & pepper (optional)


  1. Before you touch your ingredients, go ahead and cut your meat into slices about 1/4″ thicks.
  2. Next, you can either chop up your cranberries in a blender or food processor to make more juice or line the bottom of a cake pan with the cranberries and smash them with a fork adding just a little water.
  3. After you have done that, lay your strips on top of the cranberry juice and salt and pepper both sides, if you like, you do not have to season at all if you’d like to maintain more of the sweet taste.
  4. Go ahead and sprinkle on your sugar but not too much if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth and squeeze that orange to zest your meat strips with a light orange flavor. Turn strips over if you’d like to zest both sides.
  5. Let marinate in the fridge for as long as you’d like, flipping the meat strips ever so often to soak in that juicy cranberry flavor!
  6. Once you have let it sit to your preference, set your oven on the lowest temperature and transfer that cake pan from the fridge to the oven, leaving the door propped open for ventilation. Dehydration takes anywhere from 3-9 hours in an oven but check periodically. Take out if you like it more chewy or leave in longer if you like it more crispy! Hope you enjoy this great Thanksgiving appetizer!
