Redneck Steak Beef Jerky - Moonshine

redneck steak jerky
Next up for Redneck Steak Beef Jerky is this Moonshine variety. See my other review of their Traditional variety.

Redneck Steak Beef Jerky was created by Trae Stokes, based out of Pinellas Park, FL. Trae started the business as a way to earn a living after mortgage crash of 2008 busted his contracting business. Having grown up in the South all his life, he had mastered the skills of smoking meats. On a whim, Trae had smoked up batch of jerky and sold it at a local arts and craft show, and thus was born Redneck Steak Beef Jerky.

This Moonshine variety does not contain actual moonshine or alcohol, instead it was named thus for its little kick of heat at the end. These slices of meat are basted in sweet chili sauce, and smoked over real oak wood for 4-6 hours.
