Just Jerky FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Our homemade jerky treats are made from ACTUAL CHICKEN, PORK, or SWEET POTATO. Not “chicken or pork parts” or “mystery meat with chicken/pork flavoring” or “chicken/pork by-products”, like so many of the other brands out there. There are no chemicals, no preservatives, and no fillers. Every single piece of jerky we make comes from a REAL piece of chicken/pork/sweet potato. 100% Natural. 100% Healthy. 100% Safe.

How is the Jerky Made?

Raw Pork Jerky

The chicken/pork/sweet-potato is first washed, cleaned, and dried thoroughly. After that, the fat is completely removed; not a trace of it remains on the pork/chicken. We then take the chicken-breast/pork-loin/sweet-potato and thinly slice it into fillets and place them inside our dehydrator for 2 to 5 hours.

Once removed from the dehydrator, the jerky is allowed to cool and then it’s┬átested for quality by our very eager testing team; Molly & Pippy. If the jerky meets their approval, it is then ready to be packaged.

How Is The Jerky Packaged, And How Long Will It Last?

Our chicken/pork/sweet-potato jerky is vacuum sealed to lock in freshness & flavor. It will easily last months inside it’s vacuum sealed pouch. When opened, the jerky will last about 1 to 2 weeks, much longer if refrigerated. We highly recommend refrigerating it.

If not refrigerated, the jerky will develop a very pungent order after a few days. It’s still perfectly fine for the dogs, but the smell is far from pleasant for us humans.

Our vacuum sealed bags are NOT resealable, but we do include a double ziplock bag with your order. Just remove the jerky from the vacuum bag, break it apart (takes about a minute), and then put it in the provided bag and shake. Our dogs know the sound of that bag being shaked, and once they hear it, they immediately come running. Yours will too… guaranteed!

Is The Jerky Hard & Brittle OR Is It Soft & Chewy?

This is where we differ greatly from the competition, as we take the soft and chewy route. A lot of jerky products are dehydrated to the extreme, often resulting in very hard, very brittle jerky. Our product is the exact opposite!

Rather than let the chicken/pork/sweet-potato dehydrate until it becomes as hard as stone, we’ve managed to refine the timing to get something far more enjoyable for our most precious canines. It’s still jerky, just a softer, more flexible version.

We let our dogs decide which style of jerky is superior and they’ve ALWAYS picked the softer, chewy jerky first. They’ll eat the hard jerky if offered, but it’s obvious they like the softer version better and they gobble it up without hesitation.

How Many Pieces of Chicken/Pork/Sweet-Potato Jerky Do I Get Per 8oz Bag?

Take a close look at the pictures on the product page (or the one below) to get an idea of what you’re getting in each bag. The size of the green oval plate in each picture is 16″ by 12″ and contains a full pound of jerky. You’re getting that ENTIRE Plate when you order 1lb. Roughly 18 to 28 pieces pieces per 8oz bag, depending on thickness and size.

Is It Safe For My Dogs?

Absolutely! Since there are no chemicals or preservatives added to our chicken/pork/sweet-potatoes, there aren’t any “possible side effects” like there are with other brands. The only ingredient we use is chicken/pork/sweet-potato — that’s it! It is completely natural and 100% safe! If the ingredient’s label says something else besides the MAIN ingredient — chicken/pork/sweet-potatoes — you should think twice before buying!

Important Note: The Sweet Potatoes are Light Coated With Honey

The chicken, pork, and sweet potatoes that we use to make our jerky with is the very food that our family eats all week long for dinner! We’ve been eating these foods for the past 6 years and we aren’t stopping any time soon!

Satisfaction Guaranteed?

This is another area where we separate ourselves from the competition. While many jerky products do not have guarantees of any kind, we do! That’s right; we are so confident that your dogs will love our all natural dog treats that we are offering a 14-day money back guarantee.

Just return the product and you’ll get a full refund (minus shipping & handing of course). Please don’t take us for fools though. If the returned jerky is well below the purchase weight, then no refund will be given.

Beware of Overseas Dog Treats! Stay Safe With American-Made Products!

Our chicken/pork/sweet-potato jerky is made & packaged here in the USA; Cookeville, Tennessee to be exact. And unlike other brands, the chicken/pork/sweet-potatoes we use are sourced entirely from the United States…

  • Our Chicken: Amick Farms (South Carolina) OR Hobson Food Service Inc (Nashville, TN)
  • Our Pork: Indiana Kitchen (Delphi, Indiana)
  • Our Sweet Potatoes: Mostly Local Farmers, Every Single One Located in Tennessee.

Beware of any pet treats that claim to be made in the USA yet do not reveal where the ingredients actually comes from. Just because┬áthe jerky or pet treat is “Made in America”, that doesn’t mean they didn’t use ingredients from China or some other country.

With the recent reports of large amounts of dogs getting sick and being “poisoned” by imported dog treats, it’s more important than ever to buy all natural, American-Made dog treats — which is exactly what we offer!
