Favorite brand of beef jerky?

I love beef jerky. I just can't stomach $25/lb for Fatted Calf's, since for the price of one of those little cones they sell I can buy a pound of their bacon or over a pound of their sausages.

I've been buying one pound bags of Billy D's for 12.99 at the gas station convenience store near my office. It's sweetened with brown sugar and papaya juice and the only ingredient that looks like a preservative is sodium nitrate. It's made in Brazil and it's good. Meaty, chewy but not tough, slightly dry and flaky. It's as good as the jerky of my youth.
