The world's most exotic meat?

We Minnesotans like our jerky, its the perfect snack for when you're out fishing, hunting or hiking. At last summer's Aquatennial Parade I was almost knocked to the ground by people trying to grab feel samples of jerky being thrown to the crowd. Heck, I've even been known to search out a small butcher shop in Duluth because they supposedly made great homemade jerky. So, when Jerky.com asked us if we wanted to try a sample of an exotic meat jerky we enthusiastically responded yes. Boy, when they said exotic did they ever mean it! We were certainly thrilled to have the opportunity to try Sasquatch Jerky.
Now, we've tried some interesting cuts & types of meat in our time but I never thought we'd get to try sasquatsh. I understand that fresh sasquatch meat can be a little tough because it is so lean but that doesn't make a difference once the meat has been dried for jerky. This jerky has been marinated in brown sugar & soy sauce before being smoked which gives it a sweet & salty flavor that we really loved. The meat itself is a bit gamier than say beef or turkey jerky would be but that's to be expected from such a wild meat. We love the fact the Jerky.com's jerky is all natural without a ton of over-processing so we could really taste the flavor of the meat. 

Apparently, sasquatch is quite hard to source so Jerky.com only has limited quantities available from time to time (they do currently have it in stock). The price is a bit dear at $549.99 for 8-oz but you can get it right now for $50 off & shipping is free. It's just the thing for those who feel like they've tried everything.

So they find Bigfoot....and they turn him into expensive jerky?

I thought £30/kg for biltong was bad! It does look like a really delicious jerky though.

This has to be an April Fool's joke, right?

Wow! This sounds so like a April Fool's Joke! ~_^

Last I check, sasquatch has not been verified to exist.

This is hilarious! I kept waiting to read that their sasquatch was really bison or something else, good job!

Check out the story that we worked with the guys over at jerky.com to write about how the sasquatch jerky came to be.
