Bubba's Lone Star brand offers the original-recipe beef jerky along with a hot version ($23.50 per pound), cowboy cut ($27) and turkey jerky ($24). We've tried the original-recipe beef, the hot stuff and the cowboy cut, and it's moist, supremely tasty and supremely habit-forming. Most _MC _tasters preferred the hot beef jerky: hot, but not too hot, thanks to a persuasive blend of red, white and cayenne pepper. Those who like their jerky flat aren't shy about riffling through somebody else's desk for the last piece of cowboy cut, so be careful where you hide it. Bubba's jerky isn't cheap and it's not for everyone. Those who actually like what passes for jerky in most grocery stores wouldn't appreciate the difference, much less pay for it. But any fan of fine jerked meat will love this stuff. And if you're a Bubba Shobert fan too, it tastes even better.
