There is a difference between biltong and jerky that not everyone know about.
Biltong is cured and dried using salt, a small amount of vinegar and spices.
Jerky is cooked at a low temperature to remove all the moisture.
When making biltong the fat is left on while jerky's fat is removed to prevent spoiling since it's not cured.
Just felt like sharing that
I much prefer biltong since it has more flavour and can be eaten a bit moist or pink in the middle.
