You can thank Sam for coming up with this unique flavor while driving through Gilroy California, the Garlic Capital of the world! We make our Sweet Garlic Beefy Boys beef jerky fresh weekly, and your order will ship out within 7 days, made fresh. Talk about a hand crafted operation. All of our meat for this produce is sourced from a local supplier located 120 miles from our Salinas California plant. We only take the choices portion of the Top round, and slice the meat so that you can tell it is a whole cut from a solid piece of meat - the bigger the better for beefy boys jerky. The cooking process is very slow no rushing of our product. Once fully cooked its set aside for cool down once cool we use butcher scissors to shape and size our product. You should expect some variation in the product, including occasional white marbling on the surface. This is how you know our product is hand crafted in small batches.
