There are two things we love here at Lucky Shot USA: supporting our veterans and stuffing our faces. Seriously, snacks don’t last long around here.
Imagine our excitement, then, when we discovered a brand that would allow us to indulge in both of the above activities: Bubba’s Carolina Jerky.
Made in the USA from only US-ranched meats of the highest quality, Bubba’s Jerky (available in beef, chicken and bacon) is the best variety of the chewy meat snack we’ve ever tasted. We knew we had to make it part of the Lucky Shot line.
But enough about the jerky—you can taste that and decide for yourself. Today we want to introduce you to the man behind these delicious bags of snacks: Bubba Dunn.
Bubba grew up in the great outdoors, always hunting, fishing and helping his family farm home-grown produce. He learned early on not to let good food go to waste; his family’s secret recipe for marinating, drying and smoking lean cuts of meat made sure of that.
When he was older, Bubba went on to serve our country, not only in the U.S. Army but the U.S. Coast Guard as well. In all, he dedicated more than 35 years of his life to serving and protecting us—35 years traveling the world and sampling jerky from every corner of it.
How did it taste?
“Mostly like bad flavored boot leather,” Bubba remembers.
Try as he might, he couldn’t find anything that quite compared to the smoked meat he remembered from back home.
In 2004, Bubba did what any enterprising American veteran would do. He started his own company to make jerky just the way he knows it should be: locally sourced, sustainably made and free of additives and preservatives.
Bubba’s Carolina Jerky now comes in 13 signature flavors like “Ass Kickin’ Hot” and “Spicy Sriracha,” both of which are available directly on LuckyShotUSA.com.
Need some proof that this jerky’s so damn good? Greatist recently named it among just seven other brands as the best jerkies on the market.
