Our Story.


The first time I had beef jerky, I was three years old. Beef jerky was, and still is to this day, my favorite food. 

As a kid, I remember going to the gas station, carefully examining all the different jars of jerky they sold, trying to find the perfect piece. 

Today, there are less jars to choose from and too many commercial brands of beef jerky that taste like rubber and are full of sugar. Meat should not taste like that!  It was around 14 years old that I started thinking I need make my own. In 2012, I began to get serious about jerky and made my first batch. 

I learned everything I could about beef; what makes the best marinade, which seasonings keep the flavor of the beef, how can I make this better than what is being sold. For the past 8 years, I have been crafting, creating, and perfecting jerky. In 2016, Thanks Danks was born.  My wife, Jordan and I have spent the past 5 years working on this brand and making sure it was the best jerky anyone had ever had. 



After discovering my wife has an autoimmune disorder and so many of our friends who are celiac or gluten intolerant, I wanted to make sure we had a beef jerky that was safe for any and everyone. 

No sugar. No wheat. No GMO’s. No nitrates. No liquid smoke. No artificial flavorings. No water. Just pure beef flavored with fresh ingredients that you would find in your own kitchen, rather than a lab. We want you to feel like you’re eating an amazing steak from your favorite restaurant. 

In this bag, you'll find perfectly seasoned, gluten free, no additives or nitrates, USDA choice flank steak. Thanks Danks is the product of pure beef passion. It's the best choice you can find, because it's made with the best of everything.

Our story began 6 years ago, with one simple goal in mind: craft the best beef jerky while maintaining the quality and flavor of beef. 

We wanted to create a product that was free of all the bad stuff that takes away from what makes beef great. 

The outcome: Thanks Danks.

We stand beside this product, enough to put our name on it. We hope you like it as much as we do!
