Our Jerky

Since all our jerkies are made to the same recipes, they’re all-natural and free of preservatives, artificial flavors, and additives. We just use meat, smoke, and a few natural flavors.

We offer a few different flavors of beef jerky.

Grandpa’s Greatest: Grandpa Jackson’s personal favorite. It has a secret blend of spices, and is smoked with wood from the old family farm outside town. Tastes just like the land! Our best seller.

Sweet Fire: This is another Grandpa Jackson special. It’s a combination of cayenne pepper, brown sugar, and whiskey flavors-guaranteed to perk you up.

Maple: strips of beef glazed with maple, brown sugar, and smoked with maple and hickory

Smokestack: one of our mellower flavors, with subtle mesquite and a tangy blend of smokewoods.


We also smoke custom orders of venison jerky. If you’re local and want to ask about getting some jerky made from your game, stop by Grandpa’s for a quote.

Welcome To Grandpa's House of Jerky!

Grandpa’s House of Jerky

Providing the tastiest, jerkiest meat jerkies for over 75 years, right in the heart of Charlotteville. Our old-fashioned general store provides that hometown charm and country décor that you just can't find anywhere else in this age of big box stores.

We make our own jerky right here in the shop, just as we have since the late 1940s. Times have changed, but our recipes have stayed the same. Grandpa Jackson started this shop after the Depression, making high quality food for the road for workers, tradesmen, and everyone else. He quickly earned a reputation in the county and eventually the whole state for having the best jerky around. He experimented for months in the smokeroom, trying to perfect flavors and come up with new combinations. Since then, the younger family members have taken over the business, preserving Grandpa Jackson’s legacy and building a loyal following from every generation.

Come see what everybody’s talking about at Grandpa’s House of Jerky! The smokehouse is attached to the store, and we do tours every day. Just show up, and bring your appetite!
