United States -( Jerky, one of the oldest forms of food preservation, has become a national obsession.

Exotic jerky—wild salmon, buffalo, alligator—was even projected to be the hot culinary trend of 2015 by Parade’s Community Table. The average consumer has begun to realize that there is nothing like tasty, chewy jerky for satisfying those hunger cravings. And homemade jerky is far superior to the packaged kind, is much less expensive, and is surprisingly simple to make.

All Things Jerky: The Definitive Guide to Making Delicious Jerky and Dried Snack Offerings ( focuses on one hundred of the best tried-and-tested recipes from around the world and includes recipes designed for everyone from supermarket moms to the avid hunter and fisher.

While authors Andy Lightbody and Kathy Mattoon are accomplished hunters, this book is not a hunting or fishing how-to book. Instead it is a culmination of their last forty years spent sampling jerky and dried snacks around world while traveling, hunting, fishing, and writing.

Through their adventures they’ve amassed an incredible collection of simple and economical recipes that utilize easy-to-find ingredients for wild game, domestic meats, poultry, and fish.
