beef jerky time!

[This is my semi-monthly shameless pimpage of, for which I have no stake in, nor do I receive any compensation for it. I just do it "Because I can" etc...]

I’m happy to report that The Lights Jerky Company, based in my hometown of Alpine, Texas, has finally gotten their new website up.

What can I say? It’s the best store-bought jerky I’ve ever had. Locally, it’s really popular. Glenn Short, the owner, sells it in all the bars, convenience stores and supermarkets in the Far West Texas area.  He’s a great guy and he really puts his heart and soul into it. And people can tell…

Glenn and I meet up about once a week or so for beers…

All you jerkyheads can order it here in one, three and five pound boxes.

Seriously, Guys, this stuff is the bomb. A global microbrand in the making? I hope so.


  1. I was over in the states (for the first time) a month ago and got hooked on the jerky over there. I came back to find no worthy substitute, do they ship over to the UK?


  2. Hello and thank you for your inquiry. We find that shipping overseas can be quite costly. But if you order bulk this may offset some of that cost.
    Email me at to discuss shipping options.
    A huge thank you to Hugh for supporting us the way he does. He doesn’t recieve a dime for this. He does what he does out of kindness – no secondary gains here, he just likes helping. He is a heck of a guy…

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
