This is the best beef jerky I have ever had. Period. I am certainly not an expert on dried meats, I just know what I like and the people at Fatted Calf are crafting a product that tickles all my fancies. This jerky is lean and fatty with an ideal toughness. It's like chewing succulent leather, pure bliss. Fatted Calf takes finesse and in fact it's places like this that are responsible for Poor Young Gentleman's conception. At $40/lb, this jerky is a little bit of a splurge, but who buys a pound of jerky anyway? What this stuff truly represents is another example of excess in moderation. My friends, I am telling you, this concept will change your life. I’m not going to buy a pound of this jerky, but I’m certainly not going to tell myself I can’t afford it either. At $8-$13 a sleeve, one is more than enough to quench your beefy cravings. We can do anything we want as long as we know what we can get away with. Indulging is just a healthy response to your gentlemanly disciplines, so stop doubting yourself and go get some fucking jerky for God’s sake.
