We, like many other easily influenced kids in the late ‘90s, had a burning desire to snap into a Slim Jim, thanks to Macho Man Randy Savage. However, as an adult, we learned beef jerky doesn’t come in one manufactured flavor—there’s a whole world of jerky out there. In the great spirit of amateur cook-offs at the Bell House, the World’s Biggest Jerk Off rounds out the best jerky makers this side of Montana, or at least in Brooklyn—so if you have a dehydrator or the NuWave oven, get to it. Prizes will be awarded to the best jerk and jerk runners-up.
