What's the difference between Biltong and Jerky

There is a big  difference between beef jerky and biltong because beef biltong is made by air drying meat, never cooking or smoking
Selected beef cuts are seasoned and air dried,  and when ready to eat can vary between moist and chewy, to dry and rather hard.
So is biltong better than beef jerky?  A matter of individual taste!
 Biltong is (usually)made from the best cut of beef such as topside, silverside, fillet and sirloin but other meats are also used, such as bison, ostrich and other wild game
Spices used to make biltong are basically the same, with  individual biltong makers giving their own brand of biltong its unique flavor. Unlike jerky, sugar is not used in the biltong curing process Beef biltong benefits are that it is a healthy protein snack, easy to carry on a hike or outing, and it is good for you.
How to eat biltong?  Whole pieces can be sliced or it can be bought already sliced. Can your dog eat biltong?  You bet!  Dogs LOVE biltong, so be sure to hide it away if you love it too!
