About Us

The Jerky shack was born after years of searching for an alternative to the boring overly chewy sticky meat sold in supermarkets, whilst keeping true to the history and traditions of jerky and smoking on the whole. After playing with different methords, from drying it in an oven, to smoking it on a hazel wood frame, the first jerky tent was constructed in 2008. This system worked well and still accompanies us on trips to shows when we lack the room for the Shack its self.

As well as smoking jerky we also produce smoked cheese and demonstrate cold smoked fish at events, this is done in a purpose build cold smoker. Hot smoking as a cooking method is also demonstrated using mackerel or other fish at events. Over the next few months and years we will be further investigating methods and flavours and smoking, if you have an idea as to something you would like to try, or want to stock The Jerky Shack products in your shop or Café please contact us either using our contact page or email Sales@thejerkyshack.co.uk
