Smoky but sultry, the Speakeasies were one of the brothers’ favourite delivery destinations. The broad behind the bar tricked the punters with coin and card tricks, and handed over her grandpa’s jerky recipe when she lost to the boys’ bet. It was called Sweethearts…sweet, hot and smoky, just like her…and with a small name change and a couple of recipe tweaks, the 80gm Sweet Heat was born. 100% New Zealand grass-fed beef soaked in a sweet and savoury bath with cayenne pepper and chilli thrown in for good measure, Sweet Heat is great on a cold night with a single malt or bath tub gin, or a moorish snack for a road-trip.
THE OG – ORIGINAL BEEF JERKY - 80 Grams
The Big Cheese’s favourite and the one that started it all. OG is the brothers’ 100% grass-fed air-dried New Zealand beef, smothered with an elixir of the savoury flavours we all know and love to get the tastebuds tingling…onion, garlic, pepper, hickory smoke and a few key secret ingredients to keep you on your toes. Devour this 80gm pack with your favourite beer, fill that gym bag or throw into your pack on your next adventure.
Imagine a business deal between the OG of bootlegging and a Japanese gangster…this is what you’d get. The brothers sweated big-time to come up with an authentic 80gm Teriyaki-flavoured Jerky that could be traded for premium Japanese hooch. Did they succeed? Let’s just say each brother still had 10 fingers at the end. 100% grass-fed New Zealand beef is soaked in the finest Japanese soy sauce, Great Barrier Island Manuka honey, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic and sesame to smother the tongue in a sweet but tangy experience that will have you gagging for more.
HOT SHOT – HOT AND SPICY BEEF JERKY - 80 Grams
With supplies running low as the Great Depression loomed, the brothers desperately needed ingredients to finish a batch ready for delivery. So they trusted their noses, which led them straight to Mrs Wu’s restaurant in the Levee District. With just enough of their regular ingredients, plus some spices she urged them to try, the 80gm Hot Shot emerged to shimmy the tongue in a hot shot of flavour. Keep your favourite cold drink close at hand, coz this one’s bound to shock and scintillate.
