Using our proprietary process we mend Giant pieces of meat toughener to form the solid square piece of jerky that is guaranteed to be 40 inches by 40 inches. This being said this is the largest piece of jerky on the market today. You can lay on the couch with this and treat it like a blanket. This is NOT Extruded MEAT. This is whole muscle beef jerky. The slab just grew up. Enough to share around the camp fire, make clothes impress your friends.. make a hat. probably good for birthday parties.
