Just finished off a bag of jerky from Owens.  :drool: By far the best jerky ever made. I want more every time I go by Cle Elum.

I hated their jerky tasted like pot roast... give me some tators and carrots if I'm gonna eat pot roast....

Carek's in Roslyn. If they still are around, it's been awhile since I've been there.

Maybe they got the cooler I'm looking for.  thanks.

Diane runs the place after John died many, many years ago. I think she was his granddaughter or daughter, not sure.
Oh, that old guy died (I haven't been in there for years)?  That's too bad but he did manage to poison me with what I think was old jerky before he left this earth.  To be fair, I'd always had good luck with that place previously.

My departing gift to you: the runs for 3 days.  Have fun!

Hmm...this was about 8 or so years ago.  So, unless John made a special appearance for me, this was somebody else.  I'm no expert on ghosts/spirits/paranormal stuff - only what I've learned from Ghosthunters - but I'm betting that there is a higher likelihood that it was someone else and not John's ghost.

 :drool: I got another pound of jerky Saturday Morn!  :drool: Also got my in-laws hooked on it, so they bought a pound. While visiting, we mentioned we were celebrating my kids birthday, and they gave both kids a big piece  of jerky stick. Kids loved it! I feel the Owens are good people running a good business. :tup:
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

I never miss a stop in at Owens when in CE.  Last time I bought 3 yards of there meat sticks and polished off the whole bag on the way home.  That stuff is like crack to me.  Their jalepeno and cheeses brats are also outstanding.  Never had game processed there, do it all myself, but I wouldn't hesitate.  Seems like real good guys there.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

You know, I have to chime in here. I got a moose in Spokane last fall and I was traveling back with it about to hit the pass when traffic was stopped due to an accident or something. THis was going to force me to miss my butcher in Puyallup. So i was forced with a decision to try someone completely brand new with probably the only moose I will ever get. I was very nervous about bringing it to Owens, but I have to say that it turned out very well. Their "grandpas Sausage" was good too. Other than I expected a few more steaks than we got, but it was probably due to our field dressing practices and the fact that we had many roasts. The only thing I would stress is communicating very clearly with them on how and how much you want processed.


Overall good experience for me and I would use them again.

Just my 2 cents

Kind Regards,

Brianb231

One thing folks don't understand on their questimate of "ripped off meat" is there is a Lot of waste when you prepare a carcase for table fare from feezer to pan.  You want to trim it..................do it yourself.  They gave me flawless meet on the last elk, but I want to do it myself this time.

Their game burger was the bomb last time.  Think they put 5% beef fat in that was white as snow.  That's what I will really miss but will have a go at it myself.

You guys that put pork fat in game are lost.............................unless of course your making sausage.

Tried bacon once for fat back on deer burger..............................yuk.

Right now the only answer to the orginal question was maybe $20 bucks a day.  Yea hang that sucker for 7 days and I'll come pick it up................NOT!
