BKH JERKY IN VANCOUVER BC. Don't waste your money elsewhere! :)
*Laughs in biltong* Biltong is superior by light years.
It’s the packaging!! That packaging is an optical illusion. You see that window thinking that the whole back is full when in reality that is ALL OF IT. You see IT ALL.
The thing is, the Jerky is x4 bigger (literally a whole piece of stake) except they drained all the liquids out of it and dried it.
You mean they are EA games but for beef jerky it really should be illegal for them to give so little for an unhealthy snack I don’t understand.
Pro tip: make your own jerky it’s very low effort just fill the tray with meat, put in machine, and set a timer.
Nice video 😨😨😨
That’s why I eat old trapper jerky
Look like a skinny Chum Lee
Over here in the UK it's 2 pound for a packet of Jack links and I think that's 3 dollars
Goto Cosco and grab two FAT bags for 15 bucks. You guys are suckers buying jerky from 711
In unrelated news beef jerky company shares plummet
Now actually thinking about it. This actually makes since
you should try Lorissas kitchen beef jerky
You need to eat R meat. Get some R Jerky at eatrjerky.com no scams over there!!
Just realized he sounds like a slightly deeper Ross from friends
Good hypothesis bad experiment
How do you classify what a 'full' piece is?
It's not like they're tricking you. It tells you by weight what you're getting. If you don't like the prices make it yourself.
Charlie, try old trapper
Beef is expensive, and dehydrating is a bit of a process. Then it has to be flavoured, packaged, and sent. I know its expensive but like idk what you want em to do
I’m starting a beef jerky business and I’m doing it the right way
That's why I make my own jerky
The Jerky Jerks
If there's any VTuber fan here, you may know a VTuber called Mori Calliope and she likes Charlie's content cuz Charlie is Jesus and Mori is the Grim reaper
one bag in my local store is $40 for 500grams $40 Austral;ian
How do people not know this?
Jack Links is only £1.70 in UK
been sayin this for years now honestly
and this is why i make my own beef jerky lmao you get more than double the jerky for the same price
Five finger discount
Finally someone brings this to attention
You must be so rich Charlie...you’ve got like a million dollars worth of jerky there!
Weight the jerky
Beef jerky wtf man.
I thought they would get scientific and at least make some of their own to see how much un-dehydrated meat goes into the process....silly me.
So which one of you watching this video is going to make their own jerky company now?
It's called dehydration
Buy jerky from hunters and that way your money is also going to wildlife/environmental conservation. Venison jerky is amazing and is actually worth the price instead of getting scammed by the big companies
Seems like 4 to 5$ per pound which is roughly 75% water, so 1 pound gets you around 4oz. So you get more with better quality making it yourself. Between employees, spices, and distribution it seems somewhat fair to charge 6+ for the store bought.
Beef is expensive
I recommend bucees jerky. Little bit more expensive but you get like over 3x the amount of jerky. It’s also some good shit too
I typically don't buy jerky unless it's $1 or less per ounce.
They sell it by the ounce. You price it by the ounce. Bro for someone as well versed as yourself, how do not understand how food works?! I used to look for jerky that was around $1 per ounce, could only find that price on the big like $11 bags you know? How much do you pay for steak? Someone cooked this shit and put it in a handy little bag that you can take anywhere and you're too stupid to find a decent deal so you're mad at the whole system. Hahaha this is the most ridiculous concept 😂
Each bag is about two pounds of steak before it dehydrated. You pay more for the water in steaks
Have you ever made jerky though.... I mean you can start with 5lbs of meat and end up with like nothing
An 8oz steak runs around 15 bucks. So you dehydrate that same steak and lose almost 80% of the volume of the meat your left with 2oz of dried meat. This is why jerky is so expensive...
Bro I love jerky but lowkey they're is literally nothing in the bags, and they are so overpriced for how little is in there.
You were lazy and paid for convenience, you're only mad at yourself.
This sounds like discussions I heard during Grad School, in certain *ahem* circumstances, in group discussions, in the wee hours...cough cough.
i worked at walmart n i never complained about the jerky prices .... ... Because i stole every bag of jerky i ever ate from walmart
I got a 15$ bag I’ll buy and send to you guys that Ik you wouldn’t be dissatisfied with 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
why beef jerky
you should make your own.
Make your own. I spend $30 on 5lbs of london broil and have 2 gallon bags of berkey when I am done. Also it is way better than the store shit.
Go to your local jerky manufacturers! You can get double that which is the actual value for money
Mike's Country Meats from Tigerton, Wisconsin. You can find it online. $26 for a pound of the best jerky in the world. The Hot Jamaican is my favorite. Blows all this crap out of the water.
You gotta buy wholesale jerky Charlie
Near me in Illinois we have a place called Reams Meat Market they make their own in house beef jerky you get waaay more jerky per dollar.
Well as someone who makes jerky homemade regularly I have a few explanations. one pound of fresh beef shrinks by over half when dried. it takes about 2.5 pounds of beef to make one pound of jerky. it also takes quite a bit of time and patience to make good jerky. not to mention we are in a pandemic and the price of beef has gone up. generally if I have to buy the meat and all the seasonings and sauces to marinade the beef it can cost upwards of 40 dollars for 1.5 pounds of jerky if the meat is not on sale. even more expensive if you buy a better cut of beef. So you have to think logically here. if I spend 3 days on a batch of high quality jerky I'm going to charge for it plain and simple. its not very cheap to make, it takes time if you make it right, and it is freaking delicious! not trying to be a Karen here but conspiracy theory debunked. oh and the reason they have a monopoly on the jerky game is because there is a million restrictions and guidelines you have to follow to sell dried beef. I have looked into it as a possible business venture but sadly I don't think its worth it unless you have millions in the bank account.
I love jerky honestly make ur own 6 dollars can make u the whole pound and it tastes way better or go to your local Mexican meat market usually have fresh jerky 14 dollars a pound half pound is like 8 bags of jack links
Make it yourself and save lots of 💰 And you can season it however you like
The beef jerky you buy required 3 times the amount of quality beef to produce. So a 3 oz bag is 9 ozs of premium beef. Which explains why it's so expensive - sorry, not a scam.
One thing to consider, regarding jerky is that half the weight of the meat is lost in the drying process. It’s still expensive, but worth mention.
nobody tell him about potato chips for real though, you can buy good homemade jerky vacuum sealed and shipped to you from ebay. I got 10 lbs for $70 really good stuff too
My germophobic inner self is screaming in pain watching this video.
You must order you some south African beef jerky (biltong)its also dried beef with fucking nice spices on its fucking good to eat🤤 you pronounce biltong like bil like bill the name and tong like thong without the H or 🤣 i just don't hope you roast me for any English mistakes i speak afrikaans ,its like the dutch language just a bit different but we have very much english words and similarities in our language for people that is afrikaans its easy to learn English and for English easy to learn afrikaans sorry if i bore you lol give me a thumbs up if you find this cool me and my son freaks out on your videos fucking hilarious and interesting
We will rise against Big jerky!
Ive stopped buying it for a good few years cause its too expensive.
YEP COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE
You can do better just making your own beef jerky. The price of beef round is not much more then a price of Jack Link's and you can make 10 times as much jerky then what comes in the pack of any these.
get old trapper beef jerkey
I’ve always thought this but never spoke up.
Make it yourself. Lol.. it's still expensive to do it yourself too.
real niggas don't buy jerky they jam it like mans used to make them restock that shit so much and we never bought it
It’s way better in the uk, you can get like half a kilo for a pound
It's so expensive because of the large amounts of meat you need to make the jerky and how little you get from all the meat. As well as all the stuff they use to make it. We all wish it was cheap. $7 is like... Probably $2 profit a bag. If that.
I thought you were the guy that knew everything. It’s an expensive process. For one, 2.5 pounds of meat makes 1 pound of jerky. And god damn, I didn’t know I could have gotten away with making this video and getting that kind of views. Lucky asshole.
the reason why its so expensive is because jerky shrinks A LOT during the whole drying process, there's a bunch of videos about it if u just look a little. those bags are probably about a whole beef filet dried each. and beef is not a cheap product either. its just a bad combo, just eat sun dried apples instead.
This is why I eat biltong from South Africa or go to a deli and get proper beef jerky I don't know who eats 6 pieces and goes well that was worth my money
dude you got youtube money, just make and brand your own beef jerky and price it accordingly
Okay I agree the price is too high and it’s deceptive packaging. But y’all know it takes like 10oz of meat to make 2oz of jerky? A pound of round steak is (Feb/‘21) wholesale is $2.80/lb (probably cheaper for Jack links) that’s $0.175 an oz, so $1.75 for 2oz of jerky (from 10oz). Let’s add another $1.25 for processing, packaging, labor, shipping, marketing, management and executive management. That gets us to $3.00 min. There’s the wholesaler’s markup which is like $1.00 (min) and the final retail markup which is like $2-4 depending on a lot of factors. So $7.99 looks like a fair price once you factor in what it took to get it to the gas station. But thats capitalism baby. Go to your local butcher or make it yourself.
There is a local butcher joint down the road from my work, shout out to B&D Meats in Green, OR. It makes straight up mouthwatering, fucking amazing jerky. $20 a pound, worth every penny. It did shits on any store bought jerky. Besides that place the other manager I work with makes some really, really good stuff from home, too. He makes it from London broil he cuts himself, puts all these seasonings on it. It isn't dry as hell, moist and so flavorful. Wish I could get these guys a batch of each, they'd LOVE it, I'm positive.
You want to know why, THIS IS WHY, beef jerky is priced BEFORE the drying process occurs. Beef is over 60% water so imagine after being dehydrated, it becomes MUCH smaller of course. It takes 2.5lbs of beef to make 1 pound of beef jerky. Then factor in all the extra processes that go in making dried meat over just a normal steak. Then you have each brand that can mark it up for their own brand. I agree it's expensive, but there is a reason why and most people have no clue why you get such a small amount.
In Japan, I can grab a whole bento-box meal for like ¥328 which translates over to about $3.20. 🍱
If you're buying jerky right, 25-30 dollars gets you 1lbs
Just make your own....Super easy and a lot cheaper
Inflation is a hell of a financial instrument
"you bunch of jerks"
Charlie looks like a beautiful girl with a beard 😂
6:10 what a freaking score
Damn. These jerky companies out here slanging dubs of beef jerky.
That's more that $36 a lb! LMAO What are these, fkn' filet cuts??
If you want a good amount of Jack links, get their "sticks" they’re usually 1 dollar or so and it’s honestly the same amount of meat but well...in *stick format*
This video symbolizes the feeling of getting old.
I really appreciate this, because the price of beef jerky outrages me.
Well beef is 75% water so if you make beef jerky out of 10oz of beef you will get 2.5 oz of beef jerky so technically your paying for 10 oz of beef but because it doesn't have much water in it you are getting 75% less
Not gonna lie this made me have cravings for beef jerky
