On a warm summer night in Louisville Kentucky, Stanley Chase III accidentally made the best jerky he ever tried. It was salty and chewy just like he remembered jerky being. He took his jerky up to a local bar to pass around and let people sample. Within thirty minutes carnivores and vegetarians were asking where they could buy some. After months of tinkering with ingredients and textures, Louisville Vegan Jerky Co. was started. Besides smoking some of their spices with real Kentucky bourbon barrels, they also sweeten their jerky with Kentucky sorghum to bring together the complex flavors Kentucky and Louisville have to offer. Please help spread the word that all vegan jerky is not created equal.
