Three Jerks Jerky

Three Jerks Jerky in Venice, California, are passionate beef jerky lovers who know that the best cut of meat produces the best piece of jerky. After countless experiments with different cuts and flavor profiles, they settled on tender filet mignon, without nitrates, nitrites and preservatives.

Former college roommates and longtime friends Daniel Fogelson and Jordan Barrocas cofounded Three Jerks Jerky in 2012 after extreme disappointment in the American jerky market. These self-taught jerky masters are transforming a popular product into a premium snack.
