Recommend to anyone that makes lots of jerky, great flavor, not spicy or peppery, great for deer or beef jerky. Wish the other flavors were in this size, hickory, mesquite, teriyaki.
I used this seasoning on a eye of round roast, then smoked it, BEST JERKY EVER, better than any store bought stuff!!! My order for the 25 lb pack of seasoning just came in!!!
15# venison, 1/2 package of jerky mix and cure, heat 2-3 hours. Perfect jerky except way too salty. Next time I will use even less cure and heat longer if necessary.
Very Pleased, this makes the best deer jerky, hands down.
Good To Eat
This is my go to seasoning from LEM. I've used it for years! The smaller packs make it so much better for making small batches, beats measuring the ingredients. My whole family really likes the flavor.
Easy & Simple
I have used this jerky mix for at least 10 years. It is the best, always the same flavor and very simple to use with ground beef. I make jerky mainly in the fall and give it for Christmas presents. I utilize about 50 pounds of ground beef per year. I have used 80/20% beef and up to 93/7%. But have found that the leaner the hamburger the less there is to clean up after processing. I also usually end up with jerky equal to about half the weight of the starting weight of the meat. I have over the years tried other brands of jerky mix, but always have come back to LEM's.
Mix had little flavor. My first and last purchase. I will stick with Nesco.
After trying 3 other LEM flavors (Cajun, Sriacha & Jalapeno) all of which are big hits with my family & friends, this Original flavor is the absolute best I've ever tasted. Been making jerky (mostly venison) for some 40 yrs. Tried about every brand homemade recipes, ect-- and by far this is the best!! Awesome doesn't describe it!!!
I have seasoned my own jerky and used several packets of different brands and I got your jerky mix in a jerky shooter and we just really liked it. So that is why we have tried other blends you have. So far anything we used has been great.
What a great flavor! Even when not following the directions! LOL
I have tried making my own and tried a lot of mixes but this mix is the best yet. It tastes so good and best of all my wife likes it best.
LEM's original is the best ! I had tried a lot of different brands over the years and this is my favorite
Tried others and wasn't that impressed, bought the Lem jerky gun and tried the seasoning packets that came with it. MAN THE BEST JERKY! Tastes like the good stuff I used to buy. WILD BILL'S. Love it !

The standard to compare to.
For almost 2 decades I always tried to figure out how the butcher made such good deer jerky. It was always the best and I could never find what he used until I just flat out asked him and he said LEM. OK GAME ON !! The original is the one I like and have for a long time. Now I can make the good stuff at home! LEM has been in the Jerky business long before the trendy mixes started showing up.

Tried a lot of jerky seasoning, but this brand is the best I've had. No need for me to shop around any more. Great taste, simple directions. Highly recommended.
I recently purchased a LEM jerky Cannon and made a 5 lb. batch of jerky with Original Backwoods Seasoning. It took a little longer to make than the directions stated but was well worth it. My family likes it better than jerky from the meat market. I cant wait to try a different flavor seasoning.
I am a first time customer and damn Impressed!
I am a first time customer and damn Impressed! I bought 4lb of meat, made the jerky and before I knew my family ate it all! Sigh! They said it was so good they couldn't stop eating it!! I got only a few pieces!
I tried this mix right out of the box that came with my new Jerky Cannon. The ground beef jerky came out tasting like candied smoked salmon with the maple chip flavoring as a bonus. Totally happy camper with this flavor of LEM PRODUCTS mix. Will now be trying other LEM mixes.
