We had to play Tetris in the warehouse just to get the lid to close on the December Backcountry Fuel Box. It included some of the first peppered beef strips ever made from 6 Ranch, some old backcountry favorite bars and cookies, and a touch of fancy new high-quality snacks you should consider slipping in your pack.
Grass-fed Beef Peppered Strips
Established in 1884, the 6 Ranch is a 6th generation family ranch in Northeast Oregon that raises antibiotic and hormone-free grass-fed Corriente beef. They recently launched these incredible beef strips which are flat, smoked, jerky like strips that are softer and easier on the jaw than traditional jerky. Each package contains meat from only one animal and is completely traceable. You know you’re getting the best quality protein for the backcountry made by some down to earth land stewards with their meat products.
Handle Bar and Stash Bar
Kates Real Food is back in the Backcountry Fuel Box and this time with the Handle Bar, a delicious tasting dark chocolate cherry almond bar, in addition to the oh-so tried and true Stash Bar, made of peanut butter, hemp, and flax. There’s a little something for everyone in their 6 bar lineup, so check ‘em out.

Whether you’re adding variety to the usual bar lineup, or just are a cookie fan, but want something more nutritious these are for you.
Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Chips
Zack co-founded Quevos because he’s type 1 diabetic and was dissatisfied with the lack of low carb snacks on the market. He was cooking eggs and eating the crispy edges left in the pan when he thought “These taste like chips!” He brought Nick on board, they dropped out of college, and after a year of R and D they invented Quevos-- the world's first chips made from egg whites! Quevos are a snack healthier than any alternative. They have more protein, more fiber, and fewer carbs (two flavors are Keto!) than conventional snacks!
Chicken Tropicana Meal
Alpineaire makes some of the more affordable dehydrated meals while maintaining great quality ingredients in each package. Enjoy a sweet treat with Chicken Tropicana; a blend of rice, white chicken, pineapples & vegetables sweetened with honey & spice.
