A community jerky journey!
Very exciting news for us this month! Way back in March we were lucky enough to be approached by Scott Webster, a mountain guide, who amongst other qualifications, holds the WMCI (the highest qualification for climbing and mountaineering in the UK) and is an IPGA certified International Polar Guide.
He also has coeliacs disease and was looking for a company to partner with for expeditions that produces quality gluten free beef jerky, on this specific occasion to take to Everest. We were obviously delighted he chose smoky barrel and quite appropriately sent him a base camp pack full of gluten free trail jerky!
On his return last month, he kindly sent pictures of various legs of the expedition including the west shoulder with the Khumbu icefall and left this kind quote:
“I took some Smoky Barrel Jerky with me during an expedition to climb Mount Everest. It was a delicious addition to my expedition snacks and helped to keep me fuelled all the way to the summit and back”

High praise indeed from such a qualified expedition leader, thank you Scott 😊

We would love to see and share your outward-bound photos on our page, all in the name of promoting the great outdoors (and our jerky a bit too of course!) just post share them on our page https://www.facebook.com/barreljerky and every so often when we have enough we will choose our favourite and send a basecamp their way.
Thanks for your continued support, taste the outdoors!
Over the last few years we have had lots of photographs of our adventurous customers eating smoky barrel jerky on their travels so have decided to include them all here as they arrive!
We would love it if you want to comment on your own travel experiences on this blog, we haven't figured out how to let people upload photos on the blog yet, but please add or comment on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/barreljerky
let's see where it goes :)
These pictures are from two bold Americans, John Shrefler and his friend, who did a tour of the Highlands, and took some beautiful photographs, showcasing the stunning landscape of the highlands and Glenfinnan area. The guys said "The Trail recipe was perfect for a backpacking trip, eating on the go and short break snacking" they hiked from Glenfinnan to Inverie, arriving to “the most remote pub in Britain”: The Old Forge. Apparently the Jerky was a big hit there as they relaxed with their pints!
