The elk meat used in our products comes from New Zealand. Just like the deer for our venison products, the elk are raised in the same free feeding mountain meadows which means no growth stimulants or antibiotics. Elk meat is milder, so we enhance the flavor by adding a bit of black pepper to all of our elk products. Buffalo Bob’s Jerky is made from prime cuts of meat that have been ground, blended with seasonings and formed into flat strips (no casing). Then, the meat is slow-smoked for as long as seven hours to capture the flavors of the selected hardwoods. To ensure freshness all products are individually vacuum-sealed.
