Substituting Bisquick for Jiffy Biscuit Mix

I am making a recipe that calls for 1 box of Jiffy biscuit mix, but I couldn't find it at the store. I do have Bisquick. What is the equivalency?

A box of Jiffy Biscuit Mix (not Jiffy Baking mix) is 8 oz by weight or 2 cups by measure. Bisquick is basically flour, oil, leavening, sugar, salt. Jiffy Biscuit Mix is flour, shortening, leavening, sugar, salt and buttermilk. So the final product with the swap might possibly have a slightly different taste or texture since Jiffy has shortening/lard and also the buttermilk.
If you meant Jiffy Baking mix then measure for measure would be right.

Yes Bisquik and Jiffy baking mix are the same type of product. Jiffy is generally cheaper. Both are all purpose baking mix to make biscuits, pie crusts, muffins, etc
