On a warm summer night in Louisville Kentucky, I accidentally made the best jerky I've ever tried. It was salty and chewy just like I remembered jerky being. Of course it had been years since I had eaten beef jerky, so I took my jerky up to a local bar to pass around and let people sample. Within thirty minutes I had carnivores and vegetarians coming up to me asking where they could buy some. After months of tinkering with ingredients and textures, Louisville Vegan Jerky Co. was started. Besides smoking some of our spices with real Kentucky bourbon barrels, we also sweeten our jerky with Kentucky sorghum to bring together the complex flavors Kentucky and Louisville the word that all vegan jerky is not created equal.
