Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQ

What is Blue Ox Jerky?

We are a Florida-based jerky company established out of frustration of the bland, stamped, blah tasting beef jerky we encountered every day at local stores and gas stations. We wanted meat with substance, with attitude and a sense of the ridiculousness, just like us. And we wanted it to be available for all, thus was born!

Why our jerky punches gas station jerky in the face?

Our delicious jerky is a blend of spices and marinades that can make any man feel all warm and tingly inside which is the exact opposite of the dog meat we find every day at local stores. Try some of our jerky and rest assured; the meat is man-worthy!

Just how did The Blue Ox Jerky Company get its name?

Our brand got its start with Saul Bunyan, the lesser known brother of the legendary lumberjack, Paul Bunyan. Saul accidentally set fire to the barn that housed a certain large, blue bovine and opted to douse the fire with teriyaki sauce. And hence, an amazing jerky business was born.Read More
