    I have been using their seasoning for a long time and my friends and family love my jerky made with this seasoning!

  2. Ashley B Bardstown, KY (verified owner)

    We’ve tried just about every seasoning on the market, and it doesn’t get any better than this! We get so many compliments on our deer jerky and we recommend Nesco original jerky seasoning to everyone who asks!!!! (Just wish Wal-Mart still carried it)

  3. Shellie B Beggs, OK (verified owner)

    This original Nesco Jerky Seasoning is the best seasoning on the market. I have processed over 50# of deer jerky and I wouldn’t use any other seasoning! My family and friends say its the best deer jerky they have tasted. Thanks for such an awesome product.

  4. Denise C Grinnell, IA (verified owner)

    I have tried many jerky mixes over the years but keep coming back to your Original blend that I use with our deer burger. I am done trying others. I have friends who want to buy it from me saying it is the best they have ever had. Thank you for your GREAT product.

  5. Robert R Forest, VA (verified owner)

    Your original jerky mix is AWESOME! I make about 50 to 100 lbs a year and have a very high demand from family an co-workers to make more! Seriously, better than any jerky in the grocery stores! I have never tasted any better! Thanks and keep making it!!!

  6. Denise O Martensville, SA (verified owner)

    I have made jerky with deer, beef, pork, salmon and goose. I use the Original spices. It is always awesome and a huge success. My husband, son, grandkids, family and friends all enjoy the numerous bags of jerky. It is the best product available. Thank You! Saskatchewan, Canada

  7. Robin S Williamstown, NJ (verified owner)

    I have been using this seasoning for over 10 years and I still love it. I use a large peice of London Broil as my meat and season it in the fridg for 2 days then dehydrate and eat. Yummy!!!

  8. Jeff G Carthage, NY (verified owner)

    I’ve been making venison jerky with the original seaoning from Nesco for years. I add a couple other ingrediants to the mix, and everyone-everyone- tells me it is the best deer jerky they have ever had. Several have told me I should sell it, but of course that’s not legal. Seriously, this is the best!

  9. Chris W Rolla, MO (verified owner)

    Have tried many recipes but keep going back to the “Original” by Nesco. It is by far the best Jerky recipe I’ve tried! Just went through a 25 pack and getting ready to order more!

  10. Alvin C Decatur, TN (verified owner)

    I have used most of the flavors but I prefer the original, I have used 2 of the 25 packs and will soon order another.

  11. Gino M JUSTIN, TX (verified owner)

    I have been using your seasonings for quite a few years. I first started making jerky 8 to 9 years ago. I started with one of your small jerky kits found at the local super center. Since then, I have used the variety pack and determined, that the Original, is the best all round, for taste and heat. Just perfect for my family. Other friends try to give me their own recipes and say it’s the best. However, I will not deviate from Original, since we only make Venison jerky and I will not take a chance on ruining any meat with another seasoning. I now send my jerky to friends and family to FL., Canada, Ga. and HI. Thanks for the great seasoning. Gino, Justin, TX.

  12. Joan M Zanesville, OH (verified owner)

    Just love the original flavor. Even us older people can eat it and not have heartburn. I am ordering my 2nd 25 pkg.

  13. Jeff Levittown, PA (verified owner)

    Received my Jerky spice/cure packs. I made some over the weekend and all I can say is wow This has to be the best jerky I’ve ever had, the proof is when my 9 year old son told me this stuff is better than that junk at the store! To me that is enough to be said! Thank you nesco, I’m a super hero again!

  14. Scott H Oologah, OK (verified owner)

    I have been buying and using this product for years. If you follow the directions you will consistently produce the best beef jerky you can make at home.

  15. Becky S Queen creek, AZ (verified owner)

    My brother from Colorado, Charles told me about nesco jerky seasoning mix. I am from Arizona and when I tried it myself, I was completely taken by how great the flavor is! When I make my jerky now with the original seasoning mix, I have to hide my jerky from everyone or else its gone in a new york minute. I also spice it up at times by adding red pepper flakes to the mix and marinate for 24 hours, it gives it that extra kick. I also hide my jerky in the freezer, wrapped very securely and it stays just as fresh as when I put it in there. I highly reccomend this to everyone that loves to make their own jerky.

  16. Mike H Brooklyn Park, MN (verified owner)

    I’ve been on a huge jerky kick for the past couple years, and I think I must have tried about 50 different seasonings. In my opinion, nothing tops the Nesco brand of seasonings. My favorites are the Original or the Hot N Spicy. When I make original, I usually throw in a little bit of liquid smoke, but it still tastes good without it. Another thing I like to do when making jerky is to pour out the marinade liquid, but retain the spices at the bottom to apply to the meat. This really makes a difference in the taste. I usually make at least 5 pounds of jerky a week, and anyone who knows me asks if there’s jerky ready before coming over because that’s what I’m now known for. Regardless of what you read about other brands of seasoning, don’t be fooled. Nesco can’t be beat!

  17. Jeff P Helper, UT (verified owner)

    I have tried many different brands and flavors over the years and I and everyone that tastes my jerky absolutely loves it! The original is definately my favorite, but the others are also very good. I have gone through 1 25pk. order and also a variety pack of 10 of each flavor, good stuff.

  18. Samuel J Pflugerville, TX (verified owner)

    I ordered a 25-pack Original and 12-pack Variety one. I made 1 lb. or each Variety took the samples to work and have been making 1 lb. and 2 lb. orders for people at work, I’ve already gone through the Original 25 pack, ordered another one, and also ordered the 10 pack of some of the others. I also add a variation to the Original. I add 1 tsp. of Course Pepper and 1 tsp. of Garlic Powder to each pound of Ground Beef. I get rave reviews from people tasting the Original and have almost 10 orders per week from people at work.

  19. Vanessa K Johnson City, TN (verified owner)

    This makes the best jerky I have ever had. I have tried it on beef and also made chicken jerky and it is amazing.

  20. Gary L Winchester, VA (verified owner)

    I have been using NESCO Jerky spices now for more than 8 years. I make Deer Jerky the year round and my family and many friends cannot get enough of it. I have even come up with a method for making the Jerky a “soft” jerky for us older folks with our “Store Bought” teeth. Keep up the great products, I am a customer for life

  21. Cliff F Raymondville, TX (verified owner)

    I have been using the original seasoning for years. I use nil gai and venison to make my jerky and everyone who’s tasted it loves it. Have to hide it, if I want any for myself. Has been great for Christmas presents too. Everyone who’s had it tells me it’s the best they ever had and always wanting to know if I have any or they want me to make them some. Hope this seasoning is around for a long time! Raymondville TX.

  22. Diane V IOWA FALLS, IA (verified owner)

    I have been using this product for 10 yrs now and even tho we have tried other brands we go right back to this one. We only eat deer meat with 30% beef and i have to make at least 50 lbs of jerky a year!!!! LOVE IT!!!!

  23. Brandon K Jefferson, OH (verified owner)

    i got a nesco dehydrator 6 years ago for my birthday, (which is in hunting season), i got some original seasoning to go with it, best jerky i have ever had hands down, tried probably almost 50 different kinds since then and they dont even compare, you cant even buy jerky that tastes this good. Nesco i hope you read this, DO NOT STOP MAKING THIS SPICE!!!! you havent let me down so far, and for the record my NESCO dehydrator has well over 1000 hours on it and it works like the day i got it. Go Nesco, thank you for making products that last, and spices that are superior to all others.

  24. Gary N dallas, WI (verified owner)

    best all around jerky spice.great with beef,venison,even turkey

  25. Brian M Gretna, NE (verified owner)

    This jerky seasoning is very flavorful and makes great beef jerky.

  26. KEN S Hookstown, PA (verified owner)

    I tried them all, NESCO jerky spices are the best hands down!!!!! Don’t waste your money on any other brands!!!

  27. Pat C Hancock, MI (verified owner)

    Easy to make, flavor isn’t overpowering. All my friends and family love it too.

  28. Ano N (verified owner)

    First of all, a Nesco Dehydrator was given to me as a Christmas gift years ago and I still use it to this day. This seasoning is wonderful. I have used the Original and the Teriyaki mix and have even combined the two to create a different taste. I will even use different types of BBQ sauce with the Original to add a unique twist on my beef jerky. I find that the packets have a wonderful blend of spices and are terrific just using them the way they are even though I like to add BBQ sauce to it.

  29. Bill W North Charleston, SC (verified owner)

    I have been enjoying jerky for years, mostly due to generosity of my friends. I have tasted all of their fantastic jerky recipes and a few of my own before I ordered the Nesco Original Recipe. This is by far the best flavor of jerky I’ve tasted. Some will not like it, hey, that’s life, but, it’s just the right mix of spices for my taste. I have already been through 25# of jerky working on another 25 pack. Some, not all, of my friends like the Nesco better than their own recipe and have switched. Some reviews mention that it is a bit on the salt side. It is a little on the salty side, but not to the point that I don’t love the stuff.

  30. Kevin H Tallmansville, WV (verified owner)

    The original seasoning is awsome. Friends are constantly want to buy jerky when I make it. My wife would not touch deer meat until I made jerky with the original seasoning. She thought I made beef jerky. After she ate several pieces I told her it was deer and now she is practically grabbing it from the dehyderator. It is also alot cheaper to buy it from the site. Wal-mart charges $9.96 for enough to do 6 pounds of meat and on this site you can get enough for 25 lbs for $19.99 (plus shipping).

  31. Mrs. M Willisburg, KY (verified owner)

    We tried other jerky seasoning, but none even comes close to Nesco. We’ve used it for years on our deer jerky. I’m picky and this is the only brand that I like. Every time my husband makes jerky, someone new asks “Where did you buy this, it’s great”! Keep up the good work Nesco!

  32. Pam R Walker, WV (verified owner)

    As long as you guys sale this online I will never buy another brand. I went to Wal mart ( which is where I used to buy this) and they had none so I bought a brand that they are now selling, I mixed up my jerky and when it was done there was NO flavor at all, the only thing that it is good for is jerky treats for my dog. So believe me I will never by another brand. You guys are the “BEST”.

  33. Andy M Reeds, MO (verified owner)

    I’ve tried many different brands of seasoning, but Nesco’s Original seasoning is by far the best I’ve tried. I’ve been using it for years now. I order it directly from Nesco now that Wal Mart in my area doesn’t handle it anymore. (Wal Mart’s loss) You can’t beat the flavor of this amazing spice. Try it. You WON’T be disappointed!

  34. Pat C Hancock, MI (verified owner)

    I have tried other jerky spices but this is the best and the easiest—marinating–just mix and put in a dehydrator. Every body loves it and begs for more.

  35. Robert R Forest, VA (verified owner)

    I make about 100 lbs of jerky a year and I must say that the Nesco brand seasonings get better responses than any other brand I have used! The original is by far the best flavor ever! I have everyone I work with addicted to it! They absolutely love it! Great job Nesco!

  36. Ted S Glasgow, MO (verified owner)

    We have been using this mix for 12 years to make venison jerky. We really like it and always receive compliments on it. We also get requests for us to send it as gifts and share! Thanks for making it! Our jerky is way better than any of the pre-made jerky at the store and I prefer your jerky mix to any others I have tried at higher prices. The 1 lb packets are handy and keep well over a year without spoiling. We recommend using ground venison for making jerky, it is way easier to make and eat than jerky made from strips of meat.

  37. Robert L Sackets Harbor, NY (verified owner)

    I have been using Nesco products for about 18 years now, and I have always liked the jerky spices. It makes it so easy to use, 1 pound of ground venison per package of spices and curing salts. I used to buy it at Wal-Mart but they quit carrying it so I searched everywhere for it. I finally started ordering it directly from Nesco. I will never buy another brand. My family, friends and relatives have me make all the jerky because of the fantastic taste that I get using the Nesco original jerky spices. My original dehydrator which is still working is a Nesco brand that I purchased some 18 years ago and the only thing that I have added was the trays. I love this product line and you will too. Give it a try!!!

  38. T M (verified owner)

    I went to buy original spice at Walmart, could not find it. So I asked one of the associates and she told me that Walmart doesn’t sell it anymore . I thought “What do I do now”. So that’s when I thought to go on line and see if I could find it. And presto here I am!!!! I am so happy. I bought some other spices couple days ago and made some beef jerky, I had to throw it away, could not eat it…it was horrible!!!! It was an expensive mistake. Hey hamburger isn’t cheap anymore, especially 3 lbs. extra lean hamburger. Which is what I use for my beef jerky. Please I beg, don’t ever stop making the original spice seasoning. Everyone in the reviews knows how good it is. There would be a lot of people disappointed if they couldn’t find this spice anymore, me encluded. I have had my Snackmaster dehydrator for now going on 18+ years and I love it. It is still going strong. Been dehydrating fruit with it here recently. I love the fruit in my cereal. Keep up the good work!!!!! Love your product. Happy dehyrating and God bless and Happy Easter!!!!

  39. Mark A Washington, MO (verified owner)

    My oldest son gave me a dehydrator just like his years ago, probably because he wanted me to do all the work. His plan has been working, but that’s ok. We process our own venison with 20% pork into 1 pound bags. A lot of work. There’s quite an investment of time and material in our meat. Usually about one third of the meat ends up as jerky. I will not waste another pound of meat trying to find other jerky seasonings that might be better than Nesco. Our favorite is Original. I add chili, jalapeno, habanero, or jolokia peppers to suit taste for heat. As for not being able to find this line of jerky seasoning at local retail, it was a blessing in disguise for me. Nesco.com offers variety of packaging that can save time and money, delivery has been prompt, but best of all, the product is fresh when I get it.

  40. John H Mountain Home, AR (verified owner)

    I have used this mix for many years. Could not find it locally in Arkansas, so have been ordering on line. Just recently tried sliced meat in lieu of ground meat. Still the best mix around. I have also modified it somewhat for the sliced meat. Substituted beef broth for the water, added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, onion powder, curry powder, crushed red pepper and 1 tbs liquid smoke for extra kick. I like to experiment! !

  41. MRY C Plaistow, NH (verified owner)

    Original is what origina does! Nowhere on this God’s green earth can you find anything like the Original brand sp;ices! While my husband and I have tried Fajita, Smoked Mesquite Hardwood, ETC.,…..NOTHING compares to the original blend of incredible spices! Addictive!!!!

  42. Cynthia P Walters, OK (verified owner)

    I received the Jerky Works Dehydrator kit about 3 years ago as a Christmas gift, and it has proven to be the gift that keeps on giving. It came with a sample of Nesco jerky mixes and when I used them all and ran out, I couldn’t find any locally. I tried other brands and also tried a variety of recipes, but none came close to Nesco’s original jerky seasoning mix. I ordered some online and have continued to do so ever since. I’ve also tried the cracked pepper and the variety mix, but we all prefer the original the best. I use it with venison, with wild hog, and with a combination of venison and wild hog, and we like the hog jerky made with the original flavor the best. (For safety’s sake, you have to also bake the port jerky 30 mins at 160 degrees after you get it of the dehydrator.) I always make homemade candy and treats for my kids’ teachers for Christmas, and their teachers have already begun asking if I was going to make jerky again this year. They don’t want to get left out! lol Last year our cable television went out during an ice storm, and my husband gave the cable guy a bag of jerky as an additional “thank you”. The cable guy called us later giving us his personal cell and saying he’d work after hours for us anytime for jerky. You can’t go wrong with Nesco’s original jerky mix!

  43. Linda K Greensboro, NC (verified owner)

    I purchased the Nesco dehydrator for my dogs, when the jerky treats were pulled from the market. My dogs love chicken jerky, I use the Original Flavor with 2.5 lbs of chicken breast sliced thin, marinate overnight. This gives just enough flavor that my dogs go crazy for it. I do have to share with my friend, her 2 dogs also love this. Have not tried the flavor for dogs, but I will. Hope they like it as much as the Original. Best purchase I have made for my pets. My husband & I also eat the chicken jerky. 2.5lbs chicken breast = $5.50 This gives me a gallon size zip lock bag full of jerky. Pretty cheap compare to store bought.

  44. Jay Z Nazareth, PA (verified owner)

    I have been using the Nesco dehydrator and the Original Jerky Seasoning for about 20 years now. All I can say is what a great product.

    looking to order original jerky seasoning

  46. Angelique G Clarksville, TN (verified owner)

    I began making jerky with thin sliced eye of round beef in 1993. Nesco’s original seasoning was the first I used because it came with the dehydrator. In the early years I tried a few other brands for small batches because I couldn’t find the Nesco brand in stores. Nothing’s has ever even come close to Nesco! Over the years the demand from family and friends for the original and hot and spicy flavors has been overwhelming. Everyone waits anxiously all year long for their personal bag of jerky. In 2002 I bought a commercial slicer and in 2005 bought an enormous glass front digital dehydrator that holds 25 pounds of meat at a time. Up to that point I had acquired 8 of Nesco’s round stackable dehydrators using maximum number of trays in each. In one season several years ago I made 75 pounds of finished jerky for friends and family. I visited my local meat whole seller several times to buy eye of round roasts by the case. The only thing that holds me back from those large batches now days is the price of beef. The Nesco seasoning has always been the cheapest part of jerky making, however the MOST important part of great jerky. Needless to say I have invested thousands of dollars in equipment and beef only because the Nesco seasoning made it all worth it! Thanks Nesco, you and your seasoning has brought enormous happiness and hundreds of smiles to all those that are so dear to me. It’s amazing!

    Hve been using these spices for years. Give out jerky at Christmas, can’t make enough!!

  48. Linda W Galt, MO (verified owner)

    I’ve tried making my own recipe for making jerky but gave up because it doesn’t get better than this. I make a lot of jerky for my g’daughter who has type 1 diabetes and parents don’t have to dose her for this jerky. Recently she was diagnosed with celiac disease and I was so happy the spice mix didn’t have ingredients she can’t have. She tells me she never liked jerky until she ate mine.

  49. Laura G (verified owner)

    I’ve had beef jerkey made several different ways using beef & deer meat. Nesco’s Beef Jerkey mix, using lean ground beef, is the best I’ve ever used! AND SO EASY! WOW! LOVE IT!

  51. juanita R Obrien, FL (verified owner)

    Hadn”t made jerky in a while so bought some at a local store. thought my husband would like it. Boy was I wrong. He point blank told me he liked mine better, to make it worse my dogs wouldn’t eat the store bought stuff. l picked up meat and made a double batch of original and it lasted about two hours. Got another batch going this morning so maybe I”ll get a taste this time. This stuff is great and easy to make.

  52. Misha G Fayetteville, TN (verified owner)

    I use this as a base jerky cure. I am big into hot peppers and I add my home grown hot pepper powder that is freshly ground at my house. I like super hots such as the Carolina Reaper and the Ghost Pepper. To make it even better, I use a 1/4 cup whiskey. The jerky is so hot that I dip it in my fresh honey straight of my hives.

    Kansas is known for big deer, and as a deer hunter for the past 30 plus years i have made 100s of LBS of deer jerky, but i can say i have only used the best jerky mix on the market (nesco AH original deer jerky mix ) i make all my deer jerky of burger and i can say even the ladys – people who dont eat deer love my jerky, and a bag of jerky makes great Christmas gifts for alot of family and friends, i used to just run to walmart and bye it – but they dont carry it anymore ( big mistake on walmarts part ) so i have to order it online here, ps; it also works GREAT ON GOOSE JERKY

  57. Herbert C S Lucedale, MS (verified owner)

    Best spice mix I’ve ever had.. Been using it for years.. For a long time I couldn’t find it when Wal-Mart stopped selling it.. Then i looked up the maker of the kit we had bought.. Wala all the spice mix i need.. Of course used on my wife’s Nesco FD-75PR dehydrator i bought her last year to replace the old several year old dinosaur that died. Best jerky I’ve ever had.

    Ordered the Kit with the Gun and 12 example pack and wow so impressed with the product, I made a mistake and added 3 different spices to 4 pounds of burger and I thought I would have ruined the whole batch but the combo was awesome, (Original, Andouille and Teriyaki) lol…Sometimes mistakes turn out real good..Thanks again Nesco =)
