Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know if there is anywhere to get Biltong near Belfast? Not Tesco/supermarket packaged stuff, just a good butchers etc?

    Looking for things to put in boxes to send to Herrick and thought it would travel well.
  2. I used to buy mine here, Milton Keynes not NI, give 'em a shout though:

  5. Ah Sawyers! Hadn't thought of there! Cheers.

    Used to pass it every day on the way to school and all I can remember is the stench of fresh fish! Looks quite classy now from the picture on their site.

    Googled it yesterday and did bring up a few 'make your own' sites, dont think I could get away with it though, she has a rule about no hanging meat in the airing cupboard... And im not man enough to own a shed!

    I do know someone with an old air raid shelter in his back that hes been looking a use for....

  6. The short answer is no, not around Belfast.

    And, eh, can you post it?
  7. Maybe a daft question, but what is the difference between Biltong and Jerky?
  8. A few thousand miles

  9. Lots more than " a few thousand miles". Biltong is air-dried, while jerky tends to be smoked (or at least heated for a part of the "curing" process). Jerky is often also boiled for a short period of time to kill bacteria, while biltong uses saline solutions with vinegar to achieve the same result.
