To celebrate the one year anniversary of Lawless Jerky, Lawless Jerky's executives Matt Tolnick (Founder and CEO) and Jason Vegotsky (Partner and Director of Sales) will be replacing one meal per day for the next month with a 3-ounce bag of Lawless Jerky.

Beyond it being swimsuit season, they have committed themselves to this diet to show how all-natural, grass-fed beef jerky can be an important part of a sensible diet. Tolnick, who weighs in at 5'11" 190lb., will be walking 2 miles per day as part of his diet. Vegotsky, a former D-1 college basketball player measuring 6'3" 200lb., will be attending CrossFit class every other day.

One the newest jerky brands on the market is Chef Craig's Beef Jerky. A product of CJM Products, it's based out of West Kingston, RI.

It's the idea of Craig Mitchell, who a few years ago, had sent me samples of his own homemade jerky, with the intent of launching a business someday. Mitchell received his Culinary Arts degree from Johnson & Wales University, and has been cooking professionally since 1978.

As of this review, the only flavor Chef Craig's offers is this Original.
