Uptown Jerky Co. was founded by Oklahoma City, OK. native Mitchell Morris. In 2012, Mitchell had a nearly fatal experience after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. After spending many days in the ICU and hospital, his prayers were answered and he was able to go home. However, per doctor's orders, he was instructed to be on a very strict, low carbohydrate diet until his blood sugar levels could become better stabilized. During this time, Mitchell began making his own beef jerky from home to have as one of his favorite, low carbohydrate and high protein snacks. Since his Original Blend is so low in carbohydrates and sugar, this was the flavor he first began making and enjoying. As friends and family began to try his newly invented jerky snacks, they began requesting orders from him. Through God's blessings and grace, this is how snacking out of necessity turned into the business we now know as Uptown Jerky Co.

We believe making jerky is a form of art. We believe there should be more to it than just smoke, meat, and salt. That is why we consider ours a "Craft Style Beef Jerky". All of Mitchell's flavors took years of experimentation to develop. It is very difficult to keep a great flavor while using low sodium, gluten-free ingredients with no MSG or nitrates/ nitrites. We also believe it is important to find the right cooking process that will not over dry or over moisten the jerky's texture. Lastly, we believe you must have the right combination of high quality ingredients, flavor, and texture. At Uptown Jerky Co. that is exactly what you will get with our jerky products.
