>>  What is the difference between the jerky and biltong?

Our jerky and biltong are made from the same meat and both are made with the same spice. The only difference is we have to cut the jerky into small thin strips and we've left the biltong in large slabs. Therefore the jerky is very dry and the biltong is still moist on the inside.

>>  What happens if I accidentally eat the oxygen absorber?
Our oxygen absorbers contain natural Iron and they will not harm you if consumed.
>>  Do you use any meat other than beef?

YES! We now have a variety of meats used to produce the jerky!

  1. Topside Beef 
  2. Kangaroo
  3. Venison
>>  How long do the jerky, biltong and drywors keep and how should I store them?

Because Jerky is so dry it has a ‘best before’ date of 6 months! We do recommend you keep it in a sealed container. It can be kept in the cupboard or a cool dry place. 

The Biltong and Drywors still hold some moisture and therefore need refrigeration after opening. They will be best consumed before 6 months and is also recommended to be kept in a sealed container.

>>  Will Biltong spoil if I don’t get it into a fridge?
Jim’s Biltong products have water activities of .85 or less, which means no bacteria can grow, however as it contains some moisture which can allow spoilage mould to grow, we recommend refrigeration after opening and placed in a sealed container to prolong its life.
>>  What is Boerewors and how should I cook it?

Boerewors is a South African sausage traditionally rolled into a coil instead of lengths like normal sausages. It is slightly coarse and is 100% Aussie Beef. Do not overcook the sausage as it becomes very dry. Instead, slowly cook it and even add a little water to its own juices for a moist and delicious sausage. Alternatively throw it on the BBQ and again, don’t overcook it. Keep the boerewors in its length to keep the juices bubbling inside.

Please note that Boerewors is only available for purchase at selected retailers or our Charlton, Chermside and Carindale stores.

>>  What is Drywors?

Beef drywors, also known as droewors, is made from beef sausage as opposed to just plain beef. The key to the best beef drywors is to use the leanest beef that Australia has to offer. Like biltong, drywors is a dried meat with South African origins. However, its worldwide appeal, exquisite taste, and nutrient-rich content has given beef drywors firm footing throughout Australia. High in protein and able to keep for months, beef drywors is a great go-to snack for anyone seeking a healthy way to curb and satisfy those hunger pains.
