Like salmon? Take one bite of the alder smoked king salmon at Mr. Bill's and you'll understand why it's a local favorite. This specialty is crafted using wild Alaskan King Salmon, brined in a brown sugar and salt cure. Naturally smoked to a moist, flaky perfection, it’s a treat that your taste buds will thank you for.

I absolutely love beef jerky, and Mr. Bill's has some of the best, not only on the Oregon coast, but in the entire state. There are several kinds of alder smoked jerky to try, from sweet and hot to savory.

Looking for something a little sweet? The teriyaki beef jerky is Mr. Bill's most popular choice. This jerky offers a delightful blend of sweet and savory flavors. We also recommend the Cajun jerky for something different, and the sweet-heat jerky for those that love to have a little spice in their life.
