Doug’s Homestead: Famous for Pepperoni and Beef Jerky
Near Hedley BC you will find one of the best-kept secrets by locals… the most delicious beef jerky to be found between Commercial Drive in Vancouver and 5th Street in Fernie BC. Doug’s Homestead’s secret is the freshness; the smoker runs all day long and smokes hand-made pepperoni, ham, bacon, sausages and beef jerky. If you’re not there early, Doug’s is sure to be “sold out” of beef jerky… it happens every day during the summer.
Another secret: the guy making the beef jerky is NOT Doug. Brent McLelland and his wife Linette purchased Doug’s in 2007 and have been working to “make it their own” ever since.
