Brand FAQs

You won’t find jerky this good in any store. Our Heritage and Craft product lines are sold exclusively right here on our site, and best of all you can get your hands on them without even having to put on pants.

This isn’t your average gas store jerky. This is small-batch, 100% Canadian beef made using recipes that have been fine-tuned for more than four generations. Our Heritage and Craft product lines are extra thick-cut, marinated 24+ hours, and hardwood smoked using our signature blend of maple and hickory woodchips. Need we say more?

Drake Meats is a family-owned premium meat producer from Drake, Saskatchewan, and the older brother to Jerky In A Box. All of the craft jerky available on this site is developed and made in-house by our team at Drake Meats. You can learn more by visiting

Right here! You can order Drake jerky on this website and have it shipped straight to your door. Alternatively, our Classics line can also be found in grocery and convenience stores throughout Saskatchewan.

Product FAQs

All of our products are made without gluten, however, they are not made in a gluten free facility. Despite our thorough food safety and allergen program, we cannot guarantee that our products do not contain traces of gluten.

We use 100% locally-sourced Canadian 🍁 beef because, honestly, it’s some of the best in the world and it’s available right here on our doorstep.

All of our craft jerky is made exclusively in-house by our own team members, right here in Saskatchewan. (Go Riders baby!)

All of our beef jerky is smoked naturally using hardwood fires fuelled by maple and hickory wood chips.

When we say we make our jerky in “small batches” we mean just that. There are no automated manufacturing facilities producing tonnes of jerky each day. Instead, all of our products are carefully crafted by hand in small volumes so that you enjoy great jerky every, single time.

Each line represents a unique style of beef jerky.

The Classics Line is our standard Drake Meats brand of beef jerky. It is designed to satisfy all jerky lovers, and it's what got us our start into the jerky game. It features a more traditional thinner-slice, and 3 standard flavours that almost anyone will enjoy.

The Heritage Line takes us back to the basics. It features our famous thick-cut tenderness, with tried-and-true peppery flavours.

The Craft Line is an ever-evolving adventure of flavours. Think of it as a rotating tap of beef jerky. While it also features our famous thick-cut tenderness, it's where we experiment with and introduce out-of-the-box recipes that keep you at the edge of your seat.

Our jerky is 100% shelf-stable, meaning no refrigeration required. After opening, a zip-lock bag is the best way to keep it fresh. For the best experience, we recommend consuming within 3-4 days of opening a bag.

Unopened, your jerky will last until the best before date printed on each bag.  After opening, when stored in the pantry in a zip-lock bag, it should last up to 1 week. When stored in the fridge, it should last between 1-2 weeks. We recommend consuming within 3 days of opening for the best experience.
