Frequently Answered Answers

Is Tailspin Jerky vegan friendly?

Our jerky is vegan friendly if by “friendly” you mean “hostile.” Actually, now that we think about it, the answer is “no.”

When can I get larger bags of Tailspin Jerky?

Unfortunately we don't offer bags larger than our standard 2 oz. We hope to introduce a 3.25 oz bag soon though, and shortly after that a 120 lbs pallet. Small steps. If you're interested, you can have recurring shipments sent to you so you never run out of Tailspin!

What are Nitrates and Nitrites, and why should I care about them?

Nitrates and Nitrites are frequently used by food manufacturers to add shelf life and improve color in cured meat products. Consumed in excess, they can form nitrosamines which can result in a variety of health concerns. For this reason, Tailspin Jerky doesn't use any Nitrates or Nitrites in our products.

Where is the Turkey Jerky? The Bison Jerky?

At this time, we are sticking to what we do best: beef. That's not to say there isn't some tasty turkey jerky or some bonkers bison jerky on the horizon. But all in good time. We aren't here to throw a bunch of different meat products at a wall and see what sticks. We work to ensure that every single one of our products is the pinnacle of taste. Keep checking back and subscribe to our newsletter to keep yourself informed on what's coming down the pipe!

What exactly does "Proudly Made in America" mean?

Our American bred cows are sired by bald eagles and birthed in George Washington’s childhood home. Beyond our cows and their impressive lineage, Tailspin is proud to operate in California.

I saw a 'Spinbox, where can I get one?

I saw some of your awesome gear, where I can get some?

At this time, gear is exclusively for employees and partners of Tailspin. Subscribe to our mailing list though and you'll be the first to know when we start selling our awesome swag to pay the bills!

Where's the Maple Currant jerky? The Orange Glazed Sriracha jerky? The Jambalaya Pastrami jerky?

We don't want you to have to swing and miss ten times to find the flavor you like. We are selling marinated dried meat. Sure, it can have a complex flavor profile but, at its core, jerky is pretty simple.  

We're more interested in having our jerky defined by its actual taste, rather than a grab bag of words we string together for a name. We firmly believe a simple product should be a simple choice, and a simple choice starts with a simple name. 

I live in a country not called the United States of America. Can I get my hands on some jerky?

We are sorry to say that at this time we do not offer to ship Tailspin Jerky abroad. You'll have to convince an American friend to kick their star-spangled ass into gear and assemble you a Tailspin care package stateside. If things get too desperate, drop us a line at and we can see if we can help you out. We here at Tailspin are always working to improve our country's foreign relations, so while your odds are slim, the right amount of groveling might just work.
