Vic Guido teamed up with Richard Cresswell in 2014 to create Red Truck Beef Jerky – a small, family-owned business that sustainably sources premium cuts of whole-muscle beef shoulder, right here in the USA. The result is the most tender and lean jerky on the market. For the past five years, they’ve focused almost exclusively on making their products accessible in physical stores. Today you can find them in Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kroger’s, Giant, GetGo, Ace Hardware, and many more spots. 10% of their online proceeds to Wounded Warrior Project.
In 2020, they are just starting on their direct-to-consumer, online journey but are myopically focused on their customer’s experience. They’re coming to you directly so that they can serve you and engage with you more meaningfully. From engaging with them on social platforms to devouring their delicious products, your success is their success.

RED TRUCK BEEF JERKY – ORIGINAL MEAT STICK
Written by guest jerky reviewer Paul Rekker
The beef stick looks just like any other beef stick. It has a regular hue, and it is relatively dry.
The beef stick is quite tasty, especially for an original flavor. I detect salt, pepper, garlic, and copious amounts of natural beef. One thing I don’t experience is the “snap” from the collagen casing. Outside of that, I have no complaints. A 9/10 in my opinion. Gentlemen?
Here is what Mark had to say about this original meat stick flavor from Red Truck Beef Jerky: “Thanks Paul for the honest taste review. Wow, this meat stick is tasty. These meat sticks end with a beautifully well-balanced unique flavor profile with some smokiness being very addictive. Tastewise this is a slam dunk Excellent (10/10) taste rating. However, there is little ‘snap’ present in the texture to lose a rating.”
