Meet Tillamook Country Smoker
Years before Tillamook Country Smoker, our jerky was born in the Crossley backyard. Art and his son Dick Created something not so different from the jerky we serve on the shelves with nothing but good quality cuts, a makeshift smokehouse and the desire to create something delicious.
Two local farming families, the Smiths and Giengers, joined the crossleys to make Tillamook country Smoker from backyard to business. Our factory opened its doors in 1975. From there, we took in one handshake, one store and one state at a time to slowly but surely put our jerky on shelves and counters across America.
Our hard work and hardwood smoke started to off as Tillamook Country Smoker started to take off. We got bigger and our product line grew but we always kept our focus small: good people working together to make good food.
Today, people that know jerky know that Tillamook Country Smoke is hands down the best there is. even as we’re in more places than ever, we never forget our start. Art is no longer with us, but his original smokehouse still stands as a monument to good food made simply.
In a world full of flashy ads and fake ingredients, we’ll keep serving up the food stuff as long as we can. Stick around and have another bite- We’re not going anywhere.
