Since we are talking carbs and protein today... let's talk jerky!

OK, so I have heard of the ostrim (hard to find local but have bought some online) but when I am trying to get jerky locally I find WAY to much carb in almost all the brands. Jerky is a good go to protein for me because the density and chewiness and high flavor satisfies some of my head hunger. But I am also unhappy with having carbs in my jerky! I couldn't believe some of the brands at whole foods the other day - as much carb grams as protein grams!
All that said, I cannot do the plain jerky that is dry as dust. Defeats the purpose for me. Anyone have success finding anything other than ostrim?
I just use Jack Links. I only use it for emergencies anyway so it's not an every day food for me but even so I think the stats are fine. I like the teriyaki flavor and it's 14 g of protein and only 5 g of carbs per 1 oz. and I think that's reasonable enough to get a little teriyaki flavor in there.
