Pineapple Express // Bogey’s Beef // Mableton, GA
No road tripper’s center console is complete without a steaming coffee cup, dog-eared road atlas, and bag of jerky, all within easy reach. And while we’re loath to tarnish dear Rand McNally, and have a soft spot for sludgy diner decaf, we must draw a double yellow line at cheap gas station meat. Instead, we pack this. An obsessive marinade maker’s recipe, born in his stove top and dehydrator, Bogey’s uses super lean, high protein top round for an unconventional take on a traditional snack, chewy, salty, savory with the sour sweet kick of pineapple. It’s the best kind of road snack, with no crumbs to spill — and if you do, trust us, it’s so good you’ll pull over to find every last morsel.
