When the Kickstarter Campaign for local Johnson City Area BBQ Restaurant “LG’s BBQ” went live we knew it was going to be a winner… but we didn’t know it was going to absolutely take off!
Owner Lynnette Talbert spends her days perfecting the recipes and flavors that make LG’s BBQ such a hit with the locals. Between running the place and wrangling her four children she still finds time to come up with new things. Her latest creation, Sriracha Beef Jerky, has proven to be such a smash hit that she has decided to take it NATIONWIDE!
Her early nationwide test sales were conducted entirely through a single online forum. In the course of just one month this small group of people were so impressed with the flavor of the jerky that they purchased in excess of $8,000 worth. It was at that time Lynnette knew that she had a great product.
In order to be able to produce enough of the stuff to meet demand she had to upgrade from hand slicing the meat to the use of a deli slicer. Then, she went from a single commercial dehydrator to two of them. Then she bought a third, and as of now she is currently operating four slicers. After seeing just how popular her recipe has proven to be, she had decided that she needs to perform a major upgrade of her equipment. She is interested in purchasing a bulk slicer as well as a trimmer, but in order to be able to do that she needs help, so she has decided to launch a Kickstarter Campaign.
Her campaign managed to reach its funding goal within hours of launch, and has been steadily climbing ever since. From what we are seeing, it looks like LG’s Sriracha Beef Jerky is a definite winner, and is here to stay!
