Frequently asked questions

HOW DOES GRANDPA'S JERKY TASTE?


Grandpa made jerky for himself -- the way he liked it. It's awesome. It’s the best tasting meat you’ll get your hands on from flavor to texture. Nearly all of his 30+ grandkids can attest and it’s why we learned to make it. It’s the prime rib of jerky with flavor and tenderness to boot. It’ll keep you coming back for more.




WHERE IS YOUR JERKY MADE?


Grandpa would tan our hide if it wasn’t “Made in the U.S.A.” We make our jerky in Redkey, Indiana. Our beef is sourced from the Midwest — no cows south of Kansas are used. Even our packing is printed in Texas and Kentucky.




DOES YOUR JERKY CONTAIN SODIUM NITRITE?


Yes. Grandpa wasn’t health conscious and came up with his recipe before Sodium Nitrite became a dirty word. There is however, very little. That being said, our all natural product Original Sea Salt is made with without nitrates and is expected to come out later this summer, 2018. It was adapted and created for health conscious, Keto and Paleo dieters. Follow us on social media where we'll announce when it's ready.




ARE YOUR ALL JERKY PRODUCTS GLUTEN FREE?


No. Grandpa didn’t know what gluten was, nor did he care. He just made good jerky. However, our Cajun-Style Mesquite AND the future Original Sea Salt are both gluten-free. We adapted his recipe for a few of us grandkids who are Keto and Paleo dieters. Sea Salt will be out later this summer, 2018.




WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR MEAT SNACKS?


Our products are USDA inspected and stamped with the best by date. It should be consumed on or before this date to ensure freshness.




WHAT IS THE LITTLE WHITE PACKET INCLUDED IN EACH BAG OF JERKY?


The white packets contain Iron Oxide, which is non-toxic and ensures our product is as fresh as possible. It should not be ingested.




MY RECENT PURCHASE OF JERKY DOESN'T TASTE LIKE PREVIOUS BAGS I'VE TRIED.


Grandpa ensured all of us enjoyed jerky in his ziplock bag, albeit we were too scared to complain to him and never had to. If you ever experience an inconsistency with our product, please let us know. Email grandpasjerky@gmail.com with your purchase information and we’ll look into it immediately.




WHAT DOES “ALL NATURAL” MEAN?


The USDA defines “All Natural” as a product containing no artificial ingredient or added color and is only minimally processed. Grandpa’s grew up in the 30s. His jerky wasn’t all natural. However, we’ve created a few flavors specifically for the health conscious jerky eaters -- Cajun-Style Mesquite.




WHAT DOES MINIMALLY PROCESSED MEAN?


The USDA defines a minimally processed product as one that is not fundamentally altered during production. How would Lewis and Clark make jerky? Minimally, just like Grandpa did.




IS GRANDPA'S JERKY SUGAR FREE?


Yes. We have 4 flavors that contain no suger: 1. Original Hickory, 2. Ghost Pepper 3. White Truffle 4. Cajun-Style Mesquite
