Hosts Steve Garner and Chef John Ash celebrate National Beef Jerky Day (June 12 each year!) on Good Food Hour by talking to some of our butchers here in Sonoma County. We chat with Angelo Ibleto of Angelo’s Smokehouse in the town of Sonoma. Angelo works with his daughter Angela to create delectable jerky.
We head over to Penngrove to talk with Matt Gamba of Bud’s Custom Meats. Bud’s opened in 1975, and his son Matt has been crafting exotic jerky for over 40 years.
Finally, we talk with Riann Rinn, who opened Sonoma County Meat Company in Santa Rosa in 2014. Riann talks about his background as a 4-H student in Healdsburg, attending culinary school, and finding his calling as a butcher.
