A Visit to Jerky Land

The Beef Jerky Outlet (Knoxville, Tennessee)

Day 10 of the Shonali tour: We had planned on going to Dollywood theme park while we were in Tennessee. Everyone in the band had gone except for me. I was surprised they were all willing to go again so I could experience it. Well it was too hot and I made the decision to go to the Beef Jerky Outlet instead.

The Outlet was smaller than I expected, but they had everything. Smoked Elk, Venison, Buffalo, Gator and Kangaroo Jerky. I got that Kangaroo. Expensive ($15.95). It tasted like a big chunk of smoked ham meets beef jerky. Not bad.

Because some of the meats like the kangaroo weren’t cured as much as the beef jerky, they had to be refrigerated. I’m surprised I finished all that kangaroo....
