Is there a snack quite as satisfying as good beef jerky? I don't think so. There is something about the amazing smoky, meaty flavor and distinctive chew that makes me feel I'm honoring the ancestors by eating it. And honoring my appetite, too. Not to mention that is a low-calorie/low-carb snack that's packed with protein.

Good jerky can be hard to find, but luckily for Lubbock and the surrounding area, Boys Beef Jerky is now open in Plainview at 918 Broadway. These are exactly the types of businesses we need more of in our area- specialty shops owned by locals that are unique, interesting, and not the same-old, same-old.

With flavors like hot and mild, lemon pepper, chili lime, and pickle (yum!), they are sure to have the flavor you're craving. They also have "thick" available if you like a nice chew to your jerky, as I do.

Since they are brand new and family-owned, I do suggest giving them a follow on Facebook for updates on hours. This jerky is made in small, fresh batches, when they sell out, they are done for the day. And they have been selling out, so get there early.

I usually make a stop for a coffee or soda in Plainview any time I'm traveling north, either to Amarillo or Oklahoma. Now I have a "must-stop" place to get Texans' most treasured road snack. Here's hoping I get there before the pickle sells out. I might just have to make a special trip just for jerky. It's as good of a reason as any!
