Until now, that is, when you’re trying to throw a backyard cookout with your ‘quaranteam’ and realize that the grill you always use is actually at Kevin’s house (because as much as you pretend otherwise, it is actually Kevin’s grill).
Don’t panic, your BBQ can still feature premium smoky, sticky, spicy meat. And no, the answer is not going out and buying your own Webber. It’s jerky! We’re not talking gas-station fare that has been left on a dusty rack since 2002, and which you are now serving to your grandma on a paper plate in a moment of grill-less desperation. Picture this:
Extra-thick cuts of 100% USA Beef, seasoned with an Asian-inspired blend of natural spices featuring ginger powder and savory soy sauce, then slow cooked for a minimum of five hours until the sweetness of the teriyaki sauce and the bite of ginger come together to perfectly enhance the rich, meaty flavor. Or maybe you were craving ribs. How about those extra-thick cuts seasoned with a robust medley of natural spices featuring black pepper, black pepper, and — wait for it — more black pepper, the boldness of which is married with the slight sweetness of sugar and the richness of Worcestershire sauce.
Sounds good, right? This is People’s Choice — real food, made by real people. Just people who aren’t you. Which means that instead of sweating over an oven-rigged version of your regular grilling-season party menu, your afternoon can be spent destroying your kids in a game of jerky cornhole (we’ll get to that) and other equally life-affirming and possibly sponsorship grabbing (we’ll get to that too) pursuits.
Subbing jerky for grilled meat also means that you can be much more amenable to the particular preferences (read: obsessions) of your friends. Does your quaranteam include that one heat fanatic who always brings his own unmarked, homemade hot sauce and pours it over everything until everyone’s eyes burn? Tell him to leave his bootleg Sriracha at home and have a bag of Nashville Hot ready to light a fire in his heart. And that friend that, no matter the occasion, always suggests (demands) tacos?

So does our Carne Seca, our Old Fashioned Original…actually, none of our jerky comes with buns.
