Biltong vs Jerky

The New Kid on the Block

Jerky and biltong appear pretty similar and it’s easy to confuse the two but there are important differences. 

Typically biltong meat is cut into this strips, marinated in vinegar and spices, and then cured through an air dried process that results in tender meat. Jerky generally adds a lot of flavoring and fillers after the drying process that make the ingredients list a little long for our liking. 

The biltong air drying process lends to higher protein and less fillers. Jerky is generally smoked or heated in some manner to dry the meat. The biltong production process never includes heat. This helps to keep the meat tender and full flavored. 

Biltong has a different taste than most store bought jerky. Biltong really does taste like beef first and then the marinade. While every flavor of biltong has it’s own unique taste, every flavor we sell will always taste like beef.  We always want the beef to be the star of the show while some commercial jerky want to over power your taste buds.    

Lucky for us, we get compared to the top jerky brands everyday. We’re not saying it’s a competition but let’s face it, we’re a competitive bunch. So, in the spirit of competition we lined up our Biltong to the top selling jerky’s found in the grocery aisle.
