Default Question about jerky

I feel like I've been hearing from a lot of people that they use jerky (dried meat) as a way to get more protein in their diet. I guess it's a way to get more protein without all the fat that can come with meats, particularly saturated fats.

I've always shunned jerky because I'm afraid it's loaded with sodium and preservatives. Is that not the case? I'd be more than happy to add that in as a snack, especially because high-protein snacks keep me fuller longer, but I don't want to wreck my diet by snacking on something full of salts and other unnatural things.

Does anyone know if there are better or worse brands I could keep an eye out for? Or is this a bad idea altogether? Thanks for the info!
