Delicious Beef Snack Sticks from Rugged Meats. Rugged Meat's philosophy is that farmers, specifically family farms, are the backbone of America - and they need all the support they can get! As such, they start with 100% grass-fed beef from small, family-run, American farms that is processed in small batches at small, local butchers. Then they blend that fine quality American beef with simple, organic spices and slow smoke it over real hickory wood chips for 16 hours for an incredible, satisfying flavor. Packed with protein, omega 3s, and no nitrates or other nasty chemicals, this is a snack you can enjoy and feel good about eating!
