Tibbs Beef Jerky - Tibbs Revenge

tibbs beef jerky
Tibbs Beef Jerky is the creation of Steve Tibbs, who launched the business in 2016, based out of Bakersfield, CA. Tibbs descends from a line of barbecue grill masters and even dabbles in charcuterie.

But, the story behind Tibbs' entry into the jerky business was weight loss. Reaching 260 pounds at one point, he decided to forge together his love for meat snacks with hitting the gym. He started making his own jerky using whole foods, fresh beef, and healthful ingredients. When his friends tried his jerky, Tibbs realized he had a gold mine on his hands. Today, Tibbs jerky is sold in stores throughout the greater Bakersfield area, as well as online from its website, and now through a monthly subscription service.

This "Tibbs Revenge" is described by the brand as, "World's Hottest Lab Tested", being made from a combination of Carolina Reaper, Trinidad Scorpion, and Ghost Pepper chiles. According to Tibbs, this jerky has been measured on Scoville Scale between 1.92 to 1.98 million units. For comparison purposes, the habanero pepper is about 1.0 million units, while the Carolina Reaper is about 2.0 million.
