Who The Hell Is StaleKracker?

Justin Chiasson, known online as StaleKracker is the guy you've most likely seen on Reels who is starting to gain national attention for his fun attitude, amazing cooking talents, and generous personality, giving back to the community by feeding them, as he talks about his upbringing and patented cajun spice on his website:
