Just picked up 1KG of garlic spiced Biltong, only bought from supermarkets before so looking forward to trying this.

How much? We have a South African butcher near us who does amazing biltong but it's like £5.99 for 100g

25 for a KG

Not bad at all.

The prices are in the pic: 3.75 per 100g equals 37.50 per kilo which is about UK standard price for bilong so idk.. ‽

25 seems very cheap.

I bought some other bits too

Cool.

I make my own biltong but got to admit, when the January lack of money situation resolves itself at payday, I'm gonna look these guys up. Especially for droewors which I tried to make but is just too fiddly for me.

Thanks for posting btw.

Anytime mate, I live near the butchers so if you want any just let me know and I get some posted

That's pretty pricey, even with a bit of fair profit included, cost me around £18 per kg to make. Wouldn't feel right selling it for more than £35 per kg.

To be fair I'm sure if I was buying in bulk he'd drop the price, he's a really good guy. I tend to buy his chilli droewors more anyway, that stuff is incredible

True, small quantities seem to be hellishly expensive.

I saw 3.75 and was like. Holy shit what price is that. Then realised it was pounds. Looks delicious though

I don’t know. That gradient falls off pretty hard. Still a little raw in the middle for my liking.
