Note: A new update has been published with our April 2022 One Pound Beef Jerky Price Ranges, where the price of beef jerky went up $5 per pound.
A user comment on our Jerky Price Range (July 2017) post prompted me to do some research. The comment posted was a question asking how much one pound of beef jerky should cost. Well, surprisingly, not all that many jerky makers even sell their jerky in a 1 pound/16 ounces quantity. Especially puzzling in lieu of COVID-19.
Based on twelve different jerky makers, the results were all over the map, ranging from $16 – $42. Of course Jack Link’s being the cheapest, and some smaller craft jerky companies being the most expensive.
Here is a list of those twelve jerky makers:
|ONE POUND BEEF JERKY (APRIL 15/2020)|
|Get Hooked Beef Jerky||$42.00|
|House of Jerky||$39.99|
|Ray’s Own Brand||$33.00|
|B.U.L.K Beef Jerky||$32.00|
|Old Santa Fey Trail Beef Jerky||$32.00|
|Crazy Horse Jerky||$31.99|
|Rosie’s Vermont Beef Jerky||$25.00|
|People’s Choice Beef Jerky||$23.00|
|Bronco Billy’s Beef Jerky||$21.99|
Based on these prices, we feel that these are the appropriate price ranges for a one pound (16oz) bag or bags of beef jerky as of April 15/2020:
One Pound Beef Jerky price ranges as of April 2020
|Cheap Price||$25.00 per 16 ounces and under|
|Average Price||$25.01 – $35.00 per 16 ounces|
|Expensive Price||$35.01 per 16 ounces and over|
