What biltong isn’t: a method for picking up ducks, the sound of a wrong note on a didgeridoo, a Michael Bolton album. What biltong is: South Africa’s version of Jerky. But what makes this jerky different is that instead of drying the meat by heat, it’s dried with wind, much like the way Native Americans cured their game. Different drying methods produce different mouth-watering flavors, each packed with protein, low in fat, and devoid of MSG, gluten, and nitrates. What’s more, for the free range loving type, you can get grass fed biltong that’s hormone- and antiobiotic-free for a few extra bucks.
