Western Sky's featured as the "BEST AMERICA HAS TO OFFER" in Maxim Magazine's "Jerky Boys" review.   Maxim sat down with the toughest crew of experts they could rustle up -- such as Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio -- to rate the best jerky in the nation.

"Western Sky's jerky is conducive to drooling in the way few things in life are. Given that owner Michael Horman got his start as a gourmet chef, his jerky's droolability may be due to the garlicky-sweet glaze. But more likely it's the uber-meaty taste, like getting punched in the mouth with a beef fist."
Chefs say: "This one's for purists: It's pure sweetness and salt." -Tom Colicchio

Support Our Troops -- Buy Some Jerky!

Over the last couple years, we have been approached by members of our military who not only want some delicious, high-energy jerky, but also a taste of a familiar snack while they're away from their family and friends. SSgt Moore recently sent us this plaque and American Flag in appreciation of all that you have done for our troops through Western Sky's Jerky.

One soldier wrote, "Hello, my name is SSGT Moore and I am a Marine stationed at Al Asad Airbase in Iraq. I noticed that you ask people to donate beef jerky to the troops over here. I would like to know if you could add my unit to the list. Here at Al Asad there is only one brand of "jerky" for sale at the PX, but we want really good jerky like yours. I am already buying some from you all to have sent out here for myself. If anyone wants to donate some jerky to my unit the address is provided below. Any amount large or small is would be great as we don't have a very good selection."

Many average citizens have also told us that they want to give our troops all the support they can.   To do our part, Western Sky's Jerky has arranged to ship your jerky donations to legitimate Troop Support Hubs throughout the USA.   All military personal information is kept in the strictest confidence for security purposes.   So, your donation can be made by writing "Ship Jerky to the Troops" in the comments area of your order.   We'll do the rest!   We have plenty of APO/FPO addresses who would love the surprise of jerky just showing up as a present.   Let our fine military men and women who are fighting to preserve liberties and freedoms know you care.

Our Beef Jerky and Jerky products do not contain the usual preservatives found in most commercial jerky.
