Jerky is dried meat. Beef is the most popular one, but there also are salmon jerky, venison jerky, trout jerky, and turkey jerky. Originally developed before refrigeration as a way to preserve meat, jerky is a handy way for outdoors types to carry nutrition. Modern jerkies, readily available in supermarkets, come in a variety of flavors that include teriyaki, habanero, garlic, and booze-infused.
