Jerky isn’t just for beef anymore. Jerky Junction in Truckee sells exotic jerky offerings with meats you may not have ever pondered: wild boar, alligator, ostrich, kangaroo and even fish like ahi and trout. Of course you’ll find USDA beef jerky as well as venison, elk and buffalo. Jerky Junction isn’t hard to miss as it is located in a classic Union Pacific caboose that worked the rails for 30 years before housing a brewery, a pizza joint and a bail bondsman until it became a gourmet jerky purveyor 20 years ago. In addition to cured meats and fish, Jerky Junction offers nuts and honey.
