“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” Scott Webster – WMCI Mountain Guide and IPGA polar guide

April smoky barrel price increases...

Due to increasing production costs there will be an average of 7.5 % price increase across our whole range of Smoky barrel products as of Monday the 3rd of April 2023. 

This is to reflect our increasing production costs due to soaring costs with our dry goods, consumables, and beef supply. Additionally, the 20% increase in postage for small parcels alone being introduced by Royal Mail as of the 3/4/23 will have a massive impact as we are a mainly online business.

We have had to make some tough choices. We understand that any price increases are not good news, but we have not taken this decision lightly and have delayed and minimised these changes for as long as we could. These increases will allow us to continue as a viable and independent microbusiness.

We feel our price increase reflects the product value and quality of materials and hand-crafted methods we are using to create your jerky. 

We hope our loyal customers will understand our position and continue to support us and we will in turn continue to produce the best jerky we can, ethically and sustainably using local beef. As well as our compostable packaging, And remember, unlike many of our mass-produced jerky competitors we do NOT use any nitrates, beef from outside the UK, MSG, artificial flavourings or chemical wood aromas. 

Just real, hand-crafted wood smoked delicious jerky! 

As always, we pride ourselves on our customer service, as without you we would not exist! We would love to hear from you with any questions or feedback via email:
