Changing the Jerky Market

Our company began when Dusty was on a family farm in the Pacific Northwest during the summer of 2013. One evening, after a long day in the fields, Dusty was craving a tasty high-protein snack so he bought some beef jerky at the local store. He was thoroughly disappointed that the jerky was so tough and flavorless thus he decided to take matters into his own hands and start experimenting with different recipes.

We created a recipe using only premium ingredients and an all-natural USDA Choice & Select beef brisket, sourced from American steer. Turns out, most companies use ungraded top round cuts of beef – sourced from old dairy cattle. Yuck! No wonder it is so dry and tough.

Together with Aaron and Luke, the three decided they had to share this product with the world. While some brands claim they have tender jerky, none of them are as tender as ours. We guarantee it.

Our Difference

At Chops Snacks we believe that jerky shouldn’t be another thing in your life that you have to wrestle with. High-quality beef is tender, not tough. So why shouldn’t you start expecting more from your beef jerky as well? 

We are so confident in our products, that if you aren't 100% satisfied with your purchase, just contact us and we'll give you a full refund, no questions asked! That's right, and that's just how confident we are that you'll form a love affair with Chops just like we all did.
