Product Name
Fatman's Beef Jerky
Thin sliced, firm beef jerky, cut into snack sized pieces. Features 15+ different flavors of beef jerky from recipes created by Rick and Ellen Robey in Hagerman, New Mexico.

When I received the box of Fatman's Jerky samples from Rick, my first thought was: "wow, that's a lot flavors."

15 flavors to be exact.

They've got a flavor for everyone, including the savory, Butter Garlic, the sweet, Maple Brown Sugar, and the spicy, Habanero.

Each flavor is made from ultra thin sliced, flank steak, that's dried to a firm, perhaps almost crisp texture. The team at Fatman’s Jerky hand trims the jerky into tortilla chip-sized pieces that are great for snacking.

It's the perfect fit for the jerky lover who likes to savor each bite of jerky and go through each bag of jerky slowly.

About the Jerky Maker

Rick tells me the day sold his 35-year old cattle business he walked into his house and told his wife, Ellen, they were going to start making jerky.

That’s a heckuva a decision to make off the cuff, but Rick was convinced he could make something superior to what he’d found in New Mexican convenience stores. Ellen was supportive and involved from the get go. Rick would take care of operations while she became head chef.

From an early age, Ellen had a passion for cooking so many of the basics came natural to her. She knew how garlic & onion paired for great flavor while citruses such as lemon, orange & pineapple added flavor enhancing acidity.

But cooking is one thing and jerky making is another.

So, Ellen had to combine her cooking knowledge with ideas from "jerky connoisseurs" she researched on the web to come up with her base marinade of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and salt that could be used as the foundation for each flavor. It took her many attempts but eventually she crafted a marinade that was just right.

Later, she removed the soy sauce from several recipes as she found it wasn't a requirement for a nice, rounded flavor.

To come up with new flavors, Ellen relies on her customer’s. They’ll make requests & suggestions based on flavors they think would taste great as jerkies. Hence, originals such as Jalapeno Lime and Lemon Pepper.

The name “Fatman” comes from Rick’s dad, whom Rick never called dad, but rather “Fatman” -- a term of endearment between father and son that my Sumo heart can appreciate.
