Even kan­ga­roo meat. 3 - The ori­gin of the word Jerky is from Na­tive Amer­i­can “Char­qui” which means “to burn meat”. 4 - Jerky qual­ity varies greatly and de­pends on the choice of meat, the preser­va­tives, and the preser­va­tion tech­nique. 5 - A good jerky is very lean; fat usu­ally causes spoilage.
