Dan Cantara has been doing barbecue at a tiny counter attached to Graham’s Market for the past three years. Barbecue itself was a huge trend in 2012, the economy having driven lots of people to Plan B. Barbecue shack is an affordable Plan B. What Cantara added last year, though, was beef jerky. Ridiculously good beef jerky that he slices, marinates and slow-cures himself in the smoker that perfumes the air outside Graham’s. Teriyaki, Thai chile — he offers a variety of flavors in no-fuss ziplocks for $7 for a quarter pound. Prices range from $5-$10.
