Today is a special day for all lovers of Beef Jerky! For the last six years, June 12 has celebrated everyone's high protein low-fat favorite snack, Beef Jerky. According to  this is how you observe this holiday:

Snack on your favorite jerky. If you make your own, give a shout out. The process is satisfying and the results often bring friends and family clamoring for more. Use #NationalJerkyDay to post on social media.

I reached out to my buddy Mike from the Latham Beef Jerky Outlet to see how he was celebrating and it's no shock he has discounted just about everything in the store.

"Tuesday, June 12th is the national jerky day!!!  To celebrate this special day the beef jerky out Latham is offering 20% off everything in the store!  (Excluding the new fathers day gift boxes)  the store is also raffling off a $100 gift card just to those who come into the store on Tuesday!  These specials are just for today so stop in and enjoy the celebration!!"

I'm not saying you have to get me a gift this Father's Day but if you wanted to I'd love some Beef Jerky.
