with smoked meats
BEHIND THE MEAT
As a kid, Duke was an Eagle Scout who grew up running around the Rocky Mountains searching out roadside jerky stands and exploring Colorado’s back country with his family.
His love of smoked meats really kicked into high gear when a neighbor gave him an old backyard smoker. He started spending all of his free time obsessing over different cuts of meat, inventing and reinventing the perfect marinades and using unique hardwood smokes on jerkies and sausages.

TO THE BIG LEAGUES
We never imagined our family-favorite recipe would gain fans across the country. But don’t worry—we still keep things humble around here. Our original crew has grown, yes. But our ingredients, process, and people haven’t lost an ounce of integrity. After all, it’s our no-shortcut policy that got us here today.
