Is biltong beef jerky?
Is biltong the same as beef jerky? is one of the most common questions we get asked.
Both biltong and beef jerky originated as a way of preserving meat as people traveled without fridges in South Africa (Biltong) and America (Beef Jerky).
The difference between them is that biltong is cured and then air-dried, while beef jerky is cut into thin strips, then marinated and cooked/smoked.
